Zellige Tile Help

Hi! First time homeowner and renovator here! As everything is coming together were are down to the finishes. I am struggling with my kitchen backsplash… I am obsessed with the look of Zellige in photos but its so hard to design in a bubble. I really like the look of the imperfection and the charm this tile can create in a space. But seeing it in person it doesn’t seem to have the same effect. Also, in doing my research - it seems genuine Zellige tile can be difficult to install and I don’t have the confidence that my contractor who has never worked with these tiles before will be able to execute this properly. I’ve read they need to be soaked before application and some edges may need to be sanded…. anyone who has used this tile please help.
