As mentioned above, there are a number of natural stones used to make tiles, and later installed on floors, walls and backsplashes. Some of the commonly used stones are marble, granite, limestone, slate, travertine, onyx, and porcelain. All these stones are extremely durable and water resistant in nature, making them very efficient as backsplash materials. They are also available in vibrant colors and the finish is smooth even though it looks rough and full of crevices. Thus, if you are eager to find some great stone tile backsplash ideas, keep reading and make your choices.
Aluminum and metal tiles are getting popular as tile backsplash ideas for kitchens. These give a touch of modern decor to the kitchen. However, be careful when using metal tiles for backsplash.

So, if you want to go with metal tile backsplash with white cabinets, then make sure you select the right color and design of these metal tiles. You can arrange them in a two color alternate pattern, or go for some tiles which come with special yet subtle designs.

The last but surely not the least, is the excellent stacked stone tile look, which is one of my favorite backsplash ideas. The stacked stone designs are usually consists an element of color to single walls in living rooms or on patios. In the stacked stone idea, the tiles are rectangular in nature with uneven widths, and are installed with rough edges popping out of the wall. The plain countertops built below the backsplash accentuate the coarse look of stacked stone tiles. Installing lights over these backsplash ideas, can brighten up the cooking or washing area of the room.
