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.
A desirable aspect concerning the use of tile as a backsplash is the large selection of colors, sizes, shapes and textures that are available. You could even request a custom painted tile job to match any design theme you have or want in your kitchen. Also, tile is easy to install and clean. Multiple experts of design suggest that if you have a tiled floor then you should choose the same tile for your kitchen backsplash in a smaller size. This simplifies things if you have trouble making design decisions. Similarly, if you have a natural stone countertop, continuing the counter up the wall makes a simple, consistent backsplash in your kitchen. Stone does require occasional resealing, but the small amount of maintenance is made up for in the beauty of stone. For country kitchen styles, metal backsplashes work very well. Fixtures in the room should be noted when selecting appropriate metal tiles so they do not clash with one another.
Today, the choices of kitchen backsplash tile are very extensive. Colors can be muted, as with natural and warm slates, stone, marble or granite. Or they can be as bright or as pale as any color in your imagination. The kitchen backsplash tile finishes and textures are also very varied. They come glazed or unglazed to accentuate the mood and function of your decor. Kitchen backsplash tile can help create and embellish any decorative style from Traditional, Contemporary, French Country, Mediterranean, or Asian. Kitchen backsplash tile designing leaves room for immense inventiveness and originality to create a desired style. Sizes for kitchen backsplash tile commonly are 4" x 4" squares. However anywhere from 2" x 2" to 24" x 24" is within the usual range of dimensions to cover a backsplash area.
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. There are certain themes which are used when designing simple kitchen backsplash ideas. People can go as far as Mediterranean themes which use color and play with it. Usually, colors like blue and green are used for this look. Tiles may be used for accents in the kitchen while keeping the rest simple.
