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.

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.

Stainless steel can also be used as backsplash. This will give your kitchen a modern look. You can also choose a magnetic one to add function. Say for example, you can stick recipe pads or reminders on it. Stainless steel is easy to clean unlike other types of backsplash.
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.
You can have the custom glass for your kitchen backsplash. You can further customize this with colour-changing LED lighting strips. This will cast a soft glow behind the custom glass backsplash. You can set the LED strips to change the color of the light throughout the day and night. The result is bound to create a mind-blowing ambiance in your kitchen.
Traditional backsplashes use marbles, chipped tiles in earth colors, wood and other materials that would place the "classic look" into your kitchen. These are the homey backsplashes that make you feel that you are comfortable in your own kitchen.
