The kitchen backsplash is the most popular place to put glass tile. In a smaller kitchen, the small mosaic tiles will make the space look larger. In a larger kitchen, the small mosaic tiles look more like a solid field tile. Either way it will look great and be personalized to you.
Cover your entire backsplash in one solid color. This is good when you have a very busy granite countertop. You simply choose one color that you like, this is usually a neutral tone, and then select the type of tile you want. You can jazz up this solid field of tile by popping in another color or colors sporadically. This breaks up the solid field a little. It only takes a couple of odd colored tiles here and there to really change the overall look.
You can design your backsplash to unify your kitchen's design. Beautifying it can also add character to your old boring space and turn that into the centrepiece of the kitchen. You may also want to change your kitchen backsplashes in and make your kitchen look brand new. Believe it or not, it helps.
Don't worry too much about choosing the perfect tile for your kitchen backsplash the first time you visit a tile showroom. The chances are good that the first tile you admire won't be your final choice, because the variety is so great. Just choose a tile that appeals to you in some way -- color, texture, shape, size, or any combination of those elements. That will be a starting point, while you learn about kitchen backsplash tiles and discover which tiles are best suited to your project.
In addition to providing your kitchen walls with protection the backsplash also adds to the decor of the room, which is why it is important to choose the right colour, style, and material when choosing your backsplash. Often the material and colour for the backsplash is the same as that used for the countertops, but this doesn't have to be the case, and you can choose a colour or material that is better suited to your needs and preferences.
