If you're looking for a more high-end design than ceramic tile can provide, you may want to consider granite tile. Popular for kitchen countertops and floors, granite tile is also often employed in backsplash design, providing an elegant and durable option for those in search of a long-lasting, top-of-the-line look. As with ceramic tile, granite backsplash tile will be available in a wide range of colors and textures from slate-like matte finishes to rough-hewn, pebbled styles. Colors choices abound as well, and many granite retailers can source or even dye their products to your specifications if you don't see the hue you're looking for in the showroom.
Before deciding on a style or materials for a creative kitchen backsplash, you'll want to define the size—both physical and economic—of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage you want to cover is a good place to start, but keep in mind that you don't always have to cover the entire kitchen wall with the backsplash (in fact, that design might be too overwhelming, especially if your intent is only to get creative and feature an eye-catching backsplash). When it comes to surface area, many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or daily kitchen activities—depending on your kitchen's layout, that may be the whole wall, half of it or only a small portion.
This is another fun option that I just tried in my own kitchen: a basket backsplash. My love of baskets meant that I had quite a few extra ones lying around from all my flea market/thrift store shopping. So I decided to choose a fun mix of sizes and styles and simply nail them to the backsplash area of my kitchen wall. (I made sure to leave easy access to outlets/light switches.) If I ever want to switch things up or take it down altogether, these are also easy to remove.
