Harlequin Tiles 

For a vintage vibe that doesn't look over-the-top retro, try going for harlequin tiles. These patterned tiles are made from different materials but only comes in a single elongated diamond shape. Limit your color scheme to two or three shades to avoid leaving guests cross-eyed when looking at your backsplash.

Picket Tiles 

If you prefer a bold look that's still quite subtle, consider picket tiles as it has an odd shape but also has a timeless feel to it. To add depth to your backsplash, have it arranged in a braided pattern instead of the traditional linear way. 

Herringbone tile

Herringbone tiles never go out of style! Aside from mimicking the stunning look of marble, it adds loads of texture to your kitchen because no two pieces are alike with this material. Try pairing it with neutral and metallic accessories for a grand feel.
