The best way to find out whether a tile is both beautiful in your house and suitable for use in your kitchen is to take home a few sample tiles. Put them on your countertop and lean them against your old backsplash. Leave them there for a few days, and use your kitchen as you normally do. You'll soon discover which tiles can stand up to the wear and tear of your family's life! Even more important, you'll be sure how the tile looks under your kitchen lights and next to your cabinets.
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!
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.
