Subtle gold, light browns, beiges and creams go best with contemporary look. Another method is to opt for Mediterranean look through extensive use of hand-painted and bold tiles. Seaside colors such as greens and blues with jewel tone accents work best.
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.
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.
