Backsplash tiles are used in kitchen backsplashes. This is the area referred to between your kitchen cabinet and countertop. There are two ways of finishing this space with tile. Traditional method was doing a 4" strip of stone (typical leftovers from your countertop ) with a polished edge.
-Do chose tiles in multiples of 3" or 6" increments. Most backsplashes are. 18" and using multiples of that size make installation easier and not too many cuts.
-Do chose tiles that contrast or complement your countertop and your cabinet. In design, you can choose either a contrasting color like black and white , or complementary color like. tan mosaics with brown countertops.
-Do keep some spare tiles. In case you want to replace some tiles, it is good to have matching tiles. It may be difficult to find an exact match to an old tile later on.

You can put tiles in bar areas next to kitchens and it is a good idea to combine tiles in a coordinated design. For example, if you use beige granite countertops you may want to use cream color glass tiles or tumbled travertine tiles.
