Natural Stone is a beautiful accent piece especially if you have marble countertops. They also make great flooring solutions. Easy to clean, soft and malleable the natural stone makes a great choice if you are going for upscale urban. The third choice for style is metal. The choice of professional kitchens, great designers, and the person looking to differentiate their home from others. Metal offers easy cleaning, no staining and a neutral accent. Metal tile is very nice, however, not just due to ease of cleaning but because you can press it into any design you may wish to give your kitchen its very own personality.
A kitchen backsplash doesn't get the same kind of wear-and-tear that a mudroom floor, for example, gets every day. Backsplash tiles don't need to be as durable as many others. You won't have to limit your choices to the toughest and most durable tiles on the market. Feel free to experiment with materials and colors that you've never considered before. Don't be afraid to try art tiles and handmade tiles, if you see some that you like. A really wide range of tiles can be used for backsplashes!
Personalize your kitchen backsplash by finding something decorative for the space behind the stove then use a solid on the rest of the backsplash. Just make sure that the solid is one of the colors from your stove area. Try incorporating glass tile into a ceramic tile backsplash. Install the glass behind the stove and then as inserts throughout the ceramic field tile. This can be done as a border too. Another idea is to use a solid glass tile on the backsplash but run a border of color or blended colors through the middle or along the counter top.
