Other than color you need to also consider textures. Install sheets of tile that mix stone, glass, and/or metal. The effect is gorgeous. It can go from a natural look to very upscale. Changing the texture will add depth to your splash and make it blend very well with your countertops and cabinets.
Backsplashes for kitchens are great for protecting the cabinets and walls but they also can define who you are to anyone who walks into your kitchen. With the right backsplash concept and style you can introduce new life to this central room in your home and even add extra value to the property.
Cover your entire backsplash in one solid color. This is good when you have a very busy granite countertop. You simply choose one color that you like, this is usually a neutral tone, and then select the type of tile you want. You can jazz up this solid field of tile by popping in another color or colors sporadically. This breaks up the solid field a little. It only takes a couple of odd colored tiles here and there to really change the overall look.
A matte finish would normally be a natural stone. Natural Stone is available in both a tumbled and also a honed finish. A tumbled finish will have the exposed pores (holes) in the tile where the honed finish will be more of a smooth finish. Either one is perfect for a backsplash it just comes down to the over all look of the backsplash.
Stainless steel can also be used as backsplash. This will give your kitchen a modern look. You can also choose a magnetic one to add function. Say for example, you can stick recipe pads or reminders on it. Stainless steel is easy to clean unlike other types of backsplash
