Select the material with care. The resurgence of tile has brought many different types to the market like ceramic, stone, metal, and glass. In fact, the variety of tile can be quite overwhelming. Take some extra time to choose your backsplash material. As mentioned, you want something durable and beautiful. More importantly, you want a tile design the reflects your sense of style since you are probably going to have this tile for some time.
Countertop material for the island doesn't have to match the rest of your kitchen countertops as long as it is harmonious with the room's overall design. You may want to splurge on solid surfacing here, for example, and use laminate on the other countertops. A butcher-block countertop is ideal for chopping, while granite or marble works well for baking purposes and for rolling pastry dough.
That is not the case anymore. Ceramic tiles now come in so many colors, sizes, textures, and designs that it is a very good option to give your kitchen backsplash a new vibrant look. Oh, and it still is a very inexpensive way to go. Ceramic tile is durable and easy to clean. Stainless steel and copper provide a clean and durable look to your backsplash. Many modern kitchens today have stainless steel appliances so be careful not to have too much and giving your kitchen a sterile look. Copper can be very beautiful and give your kitchen a rustic look but it will have to be clean often with copper cleaners. There are many stone options that make for a classic rich look to your kitchen. Options include marble, travertine, granite, and even slate.
You do not need much artistic talents or skills in creating this but you can still come out with an attractive backsplash. Probably the most 'difficult' part of using this kitchen backsplash tile design is deciding on the two colors but you can always consult the color wheel. If your kitchen is painted with one color only the kitchen backsplash tile design that you can use is the color contrast style. If you have for example a white kitchen, you can choose to have black or gray tiles in your backsplash.
Before you even decide on what kitchen backsplash tile design to use you have to look first at your fixtures. You have to consider them more that the kitchen appliances that you have because they are likely to stay with you longer. The most commonly used tile design is the checkerboard design. It is simple to create because you only need to choose two colors which you alternately place in straight lines.
