Mirror Mirror on the…
Mirrored tiles from Ann Sacks lend industrial chic design to any kitchen. The hand-silvered tiles have been given a faux aged treatment so they appear well-loved yet still crisp and modern.
Rock Your World
Stone—so sturdy underfoot—is just as delightful up a little higher. This small-scale stone tile backsplash from Lowe's lifts the weighty material up onto the walls in a way that still seems surprisingly airy. The stone pieces incorporate different shades of gray and orange, resulting in a warm, variegated backsplash where no two sections look exactly the same.
The Sky’s the Limit
Ceiling tiles don’t have to be just for ceilings. This backsplash is made up of tin tiles from The American Tin Ceiling Co. The large, lightweight panels can be easily installed on a kitchen wall using an adhesive like Liquid Nails. Tin is magnetic, so you can even use the surface to tack up your favorite recipes.
On the Boardwalk
Reclaimed barnwood tiles from Mission Stone and Tile are available in several sizes and colors, including natural and whitewashed shades. Square-cut pieces closely resemble the standard tile shape, while 2x18 planks create an even more rustic effect.

Such a Croc
Large-scale croc-inspired tiles from Italian manufacturer Petracer bring a touch of the wild to your kitchen. The tiles' glossy finish mimics the sheen of real crocodile skin—but they're infinitely more practical for a kitchen than the real thing! Other animal prints are also available.
