Subway tile – A subway tile backsplash always has a timeless vibe that has made a comeback in popularity in recent years, as seen on many home renovation programs. It has a clean look that can look good in the right modern kitchen but also work in a vintage home. It looks great with dark granite counters, another popular design choice over the past decade. You can also use it with a bright paint color on the walls or cabinets.

Graphic tile – The backsplash is a great spot to make a style statement in your kitchen. There is an unlimited selection of tile designs available today. In order to make a bold graphic tile work and command and draw visual attention, you need to pair it with a more minimal style of countertops. White cabinets and countertops work great with a neutral backdrop.
