Glass, solid glass and then you or an artist can paint on the back of the glass, very sanitary for cleaning, no grout lines to worry about

I've read a couple of references to pewter lately...but haven't actually seen it as a material. Zinc on the other hand is similar to pewter...but without the lead. Is this what you are talking about?

And zinc is a sheet metal. It could be cut to fit and installed. Comes in 8' lengths.

They also have a Pewter Tile available, and i sell Pewter Countertops which is a premium material..I think you may be able to buy a clear glass tile and paint the backs of the tile Pewter and that is reasonable as to getting the look you want without the pain in the wallet

I would suggest a buttery yellow (to go with the granite), glazed 4x4 or 6x6 tile with a crackle-glaze finish. Set it in an offset pattern - which is like a subway pattern for a square tile. This is a classic look that will not date and would really suit the style of the cabinets.

My neighbour just added a beautiful buttery yellow glass splash back and it looks super. I have glass in my kitchen too. Really easy to clean.

Hi there, i would choose a black stone, to go with the appliances.

it's a natural material, long lasting, resistant and hygienic.. Good luck! ; )

I like the look of pressed tin, either the real thing or faux.

Have you considered a beadboard backsplash?! We recently did that in a kitchen an we love the turnout. In the kitchen attached we had the beadboard painted the same color as the wall, but you could paint it any color!

At Lowe's you can buy a unit (sq ft or whatever) then simply return it.

Beautiful Space! Take a look at some of our kitchen backsplash ideas. We hand print patterns, murals, and decoratives onto natural stone. Our tiles are sealed at our factory with an industrial sealer that works great in kitchens.

I think that the use of natural stone in your backsplash will compliment your existing granite counter tops!

Please see some of our past kitchen backsplashes at this link: http://www.stoneimpressions.com/kitchen-backsplash-design-ideas/
