It might seem obvious, but the first thing to take into consideration before choosing your kitchen backsplash tiles is to consider the overall look of your space. That way, you'll avoid making a design mistake, and also prevent yourself from feeling overwhelmed by the mountain of tile options that are available at home improvement stores.

Kitchen backsplash tiles come in a wide range of styles, including stainless steel, glass, metal, decorated tin, colorful mosaics and rustic stone options. The tiles you choose will depend on your kitchen design, but there are definitely materials that work best with some kitchen styles. For example, a tumbled marble backsplash works well in a classic, simple kitchen area. Rely on muted cream or neutral colors and you will create a backsplash that beautifully accents the feel of your cooking space.

On the other hand, if you have a contemporary kitchen, then you might want to play with stainless steel tiles or try glass tiles in a mix of colors, like black, white and a bold red.

Regardless of the kitchen tile backsplash you choose, it is important to first measure the space, so you can purchase an adequate amount of materials. It is also necessary to take your budget into account, seeing as how some tiles can be considerably more expensive than others.
