Five Best Backsplash Tiles

Updated on November 8, 2010

Using backsplash tiles to enhance your kitchen is a great alternative to a single granite or wood composite piece. Tiled backsplashes are largely inexpensive and tend to come in a broader range of color and hues, offering a wider scope for choice and overall finish.

There are enough styles and designs on the market to compliment almost any style of kitchen décor and the five best are featured below. As an example, a mosaic backsplash is in incredibly popular choice, as are the type that have tile murals inserted in them.

They're can and do look awesome and many a homeowner ends suitably pleased with their final look. There's nothing quite so nice as a good looking finish, other than when all your visitors tell you so - and want the same look that you've achieved.

This SCABOS Travertine mini- pattern tiles has gone through a tumbling process for it to have a unique, warm antique look. That is the secret of its classic and rich appearance. The edges have a worn look about them, which adds interest and definition. This one's mounted on a mesh backing, making the installation easy and straight forward.

Mesh provides a stable back and allows an even mounting. A backsplash done with this type of tile looks outstanding once it's completed and will certainly draw a few appreciative murmurs. It will also look a lot more expensive than it really is - another reason to purchase it. Overall, a good quality, stylish looking kitchen backsplash for an incredibly low price.
