It's important to consider how easy a tile is to clean when you're planning to use it in your kitchen. Unglazed tiles have a beautiful texture, but they are more likely to stain than glazed tiles. Stone tiles are also quite porous. Don't worry, though! Tiles can be sealed to make them suitable for use as kitchen backsplash tiles.
Before designing a kitchen backsplash, keep the overall theme in mind. For instance, contemporary kitchen with old world backsplash would give an odd look. Ensure you seal all stone surfaces with sealers. This would ease the pressure of maintaining them.
If you are having challenges visualizing, WAIT to pick out the colors of your backsplash. I have so many customers that just can't visualize how everything will look when it's all finished. And, it's no wonder because when you are redoing your whole kitchen, virtually every element is changing. How often do you redo your kitchen? I'm guessing not often. Of course for someone like me who does this all the time, it comes more naturally, but for a regular customer, most of them need some assistance. From a sequencing standpoint, you'll want to get floors, cabinets and countertops done all sequentially. And, while your kitchen is out of commission at this point, once those countertops are installed and sinks/appliances reconnected to water and/or gas lines, your kitchen is operational again. If you need to, you can delay a bit before picking finalizing the backsplash, especially if this makes you feel more comfortable in your decision. I have many customers that opt for this solution. It just gives them piece of mind and more confidence in their choices.
