Love those huge tiles - less grout to clean! Wonder why I haven't seen them in backsplashes so much?

Tile is great for below-grade floor installation, where moisture can be an issue, but they can also be slick or chilly. They don't give at all, which is durable, but tough on dropped dishes and old knees. There are some in-between part vinyl part tile products like duraceramic to consider.

I am in search of porcelain that looks like terracotta hex and porcelain that looks like creamy brick. Any leads?

sidneyroche, sorry I don't know of any in particular. I would check with your local tile showrooms or Google.
