Kitchen Backsplash Inspiration

After realizing that our kitchen needed the backsplash as soon as our time and money allow, I immediately did my online shopping.

I was pinning, liking and saving photos of beautifully backsplashed kitchen, like crazy...

Although I have picked some of my favorites, I only need one and these are the backsplashes that inspired me the most.

You guys can definitely help me pick what is the best backsplash because honestly I am now confused which one is the best for our kitchen.

First  I like this one Lantern Black Porcelain Mosaic Tile, because it looks very dramatic and very stylish.  The only thing that draws me back is that it might make our kitchen look darker.
Second  Next on my list is this Natural Venatino Polished Stone Mosaic Tile.  I am actually leaning towards this one because of how soft and timeless it is, yet stylish and elegant.  Very easy on the eyes. But it can be boring.
This is also the same backsplash that Carmel used in her beautiful kitchen.

Third  Is this random strip Carrara Bianco Polished Marble Mosaic Tile.  Although it may look similar to the one above, it has the random strip that is visually interesting.

Fourth Is this mixed stone and glass Allen + Roth Mosaic Wall Tile.  I like this one because knowing that I have white cabinets, these for sure will add visual interest and I know it will give my kitchen lots of attention.

Those are the four that I like so far.

Overall, the things that I want for our backsplash are:
• polished or smooth - no textures, that way it is easier to wipe off and clean
• easy on the eyes but has visual interest at the same time
• can be multi-color but should be neutral or black for drama and sophistication
• contemporary but timeless look

What are your thoughts?
