However, before you decide on the type of ceramic tile you will choose for your backsplash, it is important to first consider how you like to cook and clean. The thing is, ceramic tile often includes exposed lines of grout—meaning dirt can get trapped in every nook and cranny. Therefore, if you spend a lot of time at the stove or are prone to making a mess when cooking, you may not want to choose tiny tiles that will result in a lot of grout lines. You might also want to choose a dark grout which will make dirt less visible.

Once that is decided, then you can choose the ceramic tiles that will work best in your kitchen area. A country style kitchen might pair well with pale yellow tiles or a mix of faded green and blue tiles. On the other hand, a Tuscan style kitchen might be enhanced by ceramic tiles that are accented by a decorative bunch of grapes or ivy.

Some people also add a touch of creative genius to their backsplashes by choosing neutral tiles and painting a stenciled design onto the tiles. Once the design is complete, the tiles are then adhered to the wall.
