Matte or glossy backsplash tile? Have matte finish Corian counter

15 years ago

We have a Corian counter (color is Antartica, which is white with white "particulates") with a matte finish. The cabinets are a medium-stained maple. So the next step is to select the tile for the backsplash. We are looking for a "timeless" kitchen, that can be accessorized with various colors over time.

So if we select a white tile for a backsplash (perhaps a herringbone or other design over the cooktop), do you think a matte finish on the backsplash tile will be okay? I'm seeing a lot of matte finish on recent tile installs and think this may look better over the long run. Any thoughts?
