6. Staggered Tile
Instead of finishing it with a trim or going all the way up to the ceiling, consider adding a little contrast by staggering your tile in a unique finish. The hexagon tiles make it easy to create an impressive transition, but even your standard square and rectangle tiles can give you an exclusive look with a little bit of creativity.
7. Pearl is SO pretty!
I'm a huge fan of pearl tile because it gives you a natural, from-the-earth appearance, but yet, is still shimmery and gorgeous! Even in a rustic setting you can get away with a pearl backsplash or trim. In my experience, I've found that most of these tiles are really thin and not meant for high traffic areas like counter tops or floors, but even just a small accent or back splash can make any room look exquisite. Most tile stores have a fairly large selection to choose from– even Amazon has quite a few with good reviews and customer photos.
8. Backsplash Grout Lines
Give your floors an interesting design by laying thin strips of small tiles in the grout lines of larger tiles. You're basically replacing a lot of the grout, so instead of having those soon-to-be dirty lines, they always sparkle! I think this would also look nice in a shower.
