The most popular style is plain tiles on the backsplash. There are many shapes in which you could get these tiles cut, and then install them in a desired manner. Putting two or more types of stone tiles together, such as white marble or white porcelain with granite, limestone and slate, can give you the liberty to make color combinations on the backsplash. Shapes such as rectangles, inverted squares, circles, etc. are a few unique designs.
On the other hand, you can go for ceramic tiles as they have the similar advantages as that of glass tiles. They are also available in different colors and can be used to make interesting and attractive backsplash tile designs. Secondly, porcelain and granite tiles can also be considered. All these tiles are as durable as glass tiles, but require sealing.
