Once you've decided on how much backsplash you want to feature in your kitchen, it's time to think about style. Your choices in terms of materials, colors and layout are just about infinite, with a wide range of aesthetic, quality and price options. Ceramic tile is a popular choice for kitchen backsplash designs because it's widely available and comes in an almost infinite variety of styles and colors. Perhaps most importantly, ceramic tile can be cleaned fairly easily (the "splash" in backsplash is there for good reason). Within the range of ceramic tile choices, you'll find simple high-gloss "subway tile" styles in every color of the rainbow, all the way through to elaborate designs and patterns that can give your kitchen a tremendous amount of visual flair.
Creative backsplashes don't have to be made from found items, though—they can be much simpler, but just as colorful and visually appealing. Many homeowners looking to add a uniquely creative design to their kitchen have begun to feature "paper" backsplashes. Featuring interesting designs and bold colors on materials like heavy duty scrapbook paper, old newspaper pages, or even magazine image collages, these backsplashes provide plenty of visual punch at a fraction of the cost of ones constructed from tile, metal or stone. If you find this approach appealing, all you'll need to do is procure the paper, glue or paste it to the wall, then coat it with a finish that will protect the paper and allow you to easily wipe it clean.
Ask about wear and tear. How easily can you clean the tile, and what is the best way to seal it? Ceramic tile doesn't need this extra step, but natural tile does if you want to maintain its appearance. "If the tile is stainless steel, find out if abrasives will scratch it, and I would suggest getting a grout additive and sealing the grout itself so it stays fresh and clean for longer," Van Deusen says.
