What Houzz contributors are saying:
MaterialCeramic and porcelain are the most common choices for kitchen splashback tiles. Ceramic tiles are readily available and are cost effective. They are made from a mixture of clays that are baked at high temperatures. The tiles are then glazed to make them hard and resistant to water. The glaze can be gloss or matt finish depending on the look you’d like to achieve. Porcelain tiles are similar to ceramic tiles, but have been fired at even greater temperatures. This makes them virtually non-porous and so they won’t require an additional glaze to protect them. Porcelain tiles are much tougher than ceramic tiles and will therefore carry a higher price tag.
