Now that the scope of the project is clear, it‘s time to think about the style of mosaic tile you‘ll use. You‘ll have a great deal of choices in this area, from glass and ceramic to many types of granite or stone. In general, ceramic and synthetics will be the cheapest materials; glass, stone and other natural materials will be more expensive. Ultimately, the style you choose may be defined by whether or not you plan to match the existing design of your kitchen or if you‘ll use the mosaic backsplash as a bit of a style departure. For example, an understated, contemporary kitchen could be complemented with a simple, black-and-white design—or you might choose to add color with a vibrant, multicolored mosaic. Using glass will generally create a brighter and more reflective design, whereas stone or granite may offer a more matte feel.
If you‘ve decided that subway tile is the right style for your kitchen backsplash, your first task will be to determine exactly what tile material you want to feature. You can browse the available choices online or in-store, and you‘re likely to find that subway-style tile is available in just about any type of backsplash material, from ceramic to glass to high-end granite. Your personal style and desire to match or diverge from the overall style of the kitchen—in addition to the budget you‘ve settled on for your backsplash project—will likely be the deciding factors here.

At the outset of your metal tile backsplash project, you‘ll want to determine the scope of the project. To estimate the amount of metal tile material you‘ll need, measure the square footage of the area in your kitchen you want to cover with the backsplash. Figuring out how much tile you‘ll need will give you a good indication of the overall budget, so it‘s an essential first step. Before calculating the square footage, you‘ll need to decide if you want a backsplash that covers the entirety of the wall space between your counters and cabinets or counters and ceiling, or just a portion thereof. The style that‘s right for you may be a more understated backsplash that only covers enough of the walls to prevent cooking and cleaning spatter, or it may be a grand affair that dramatically stretches from countertops to ceiling. Once you‘ve decided on the amount of coverage, mark the area off and measure the square footage.
