Over the past five years or so there has been an up swell in styles in these two materials. Colors and styles are now completely customizable. Regardless of the color, size or shape there is a solution for you and your tastes. These materials are very easy to clean making them in demand and very desirable. What is more important is they can be purchased online for store pick-ups or directly at the store. There is a reason why porcelain and ceramic tiles has been the number one seller for backsplashes for decades. Do not think you are saddled with these two choices though. Glass tile is very popular and growing in popularity because it is cheap and very easy to clean. You can find them in mosaic or field sizes. The colors that you can get in glass are beautiful and subtle and make for deep accents in your design scheme.
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.
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.
