Veteran reader of My Home Redux and long-time friend, Terri, asked about kitchen backsplash ideas to go with her granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. She was especially interested in glass tiles but didn't want something so trendy that it would go out of style right away.
Glass tiles are beautiful As long as you use a non-scratch cleanser, they're easy to maintain. To avoid becoming the backsplash equivalent of an avocado refridgerator, just stick to classic designs and colors. The colorless (tends to look like green) and bright blues will likely show their age before more traditional and conservative colors. Also, be sure to coordinate the tile with your countertops for a harmonious look.
Here is an excellent site that gives tips and hints and many links to see glass tiles and designs.
Also, here is a photo gallery of various backsplashes - glass tile, stone, and more - from HGTV.
These two sites are sure to get your creative juices flowing.
