A glass tile kitchen backsplash brings elegance, style, color, and light to your kitchen. The colors, designs, and sizes available will sure to fit anything you have in mind. They are a little more expensive than ceramic tile, but you will be happy with the results the extra money will give. The do-it-yourselfer will find glass tiles easy to trim and apply if you are wanting to tackle the project yourself. Most come already together by a mesh background with perfect grout spacing between. A very good choice for the kitchen because it is easy to clean. Ceramic tile is the most common and traditionally looked at as cheap.
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.
Express yourself with color. Because the backsplash is a relatively small area, it's your chance to play with color. It's always safe to choose warm, soft colors. However, you can be much more daring! This is your chance to add an exciting punch of color. Play with pattern. Patterns add interest - especially if you are on a tight budget. One easy way to save money is to select standard tiles in complementary or contrasting colors and then arrange them to create an interesting pattern. For instance, an unusual checkered pattern can make your kitchen feel like a quaint little bistro rather than a boring rental apartment.
