Mixing different shapes and sizes of kitchen backsplash tile can create a wonderful composition, such as a landscape surrounded by a border. The possibilities are endless with the use of shapes such as hexagons, octagons, squares, diamonds and rectangles. Bas-relief tiles can be used as an elegant border to any design.
An important factor when choosing any type of kitchen backsplash is the particular material, durability and ease of cleaning. Many people are looking for something that can simply be wiped clean, others want a decorative component that adds the rustic charm their kitchen design style needs. Whatever your particular goals, understanding the different materials and how they will affect your design and cleaning styles will certainly be important. For example, pressed tin is a time tested material that is not only beautiful, but also very affordable; however, depending on the detail, cleaning might be a bit more challenging than a flat surface, such as a brushed copper. The easiest metal tiles to clean are stainless steel requiring only a quick wipe down with disinfectant spray or any other household cleaner.
Porcelain tiles: Most people prefer the porcelain variety because they look natural and have the same appearance and texture as stone tiles. Porcelain tiles, which have a homogenous structure, don't chip and scratch and are quite resistant to weight.
Making a decision on the backsplash tiles can be hard when you're in the store browsing through them. That's why it's recommended to take a few samples home to allow you to get a feel for them. It's pretty amazing how your imagination can visualize the endless possibilities when you have something like a tile that will help to strengthen it.

Surface - Before choosing backsplash material, it will first be important to know where it will be applied. This is to make sure that backsplash choice will be appropriate for the chosen area and to find the right material that will not present any difficulty on installation.
