As for copper tiles, the most popular option here is copper penny tiles, especially in several different copper shades. Speaking of copper penny tile, you can even install your own backsplash of real pennies and get a unique look. Small square or rectangular tiles are also a cool option, they will fit many spaces: rustic, glam, art deco, contemporary and so on. They also may be hammered ones to add a Moroccan feel or a boho touch to your kitchen.
Concrete can crack: that’s a risk that comes along with concrete countertops, most commonly when poured in place rather than pre-cast. To prevent it, you may add fiber reinforcement, rebar, and/or wire mesh but if they still appear, they can be repaired. Concrete backsplashes require maintenance. Reseal your backsplash every one to three years, avoid abrasive cleaners and scrubbers that can damage sealer. Consider all these pros and cons and decide if concrete is worth it or not.

One of the things that we love most about glass backsplashes is how smooth and uniform their surface is.
