The #4 finish is the one used in residential and commercial kitchens, on hoods, ovens, fridges, dishwashers, trash compactors, etc and commercial kitchen equipment. Any darker shades are from the lighting as the metal tends to take on it's surrounding hues.

The diamond pattern backsplash uses the #4 finish with groves that are shallow and easy to clean.

The mosaic backsplash has the same coloring as the harlequin and checkerboard but features diamond shapes instead of squares.

The hammertex finish is a "hammered" texture and is highly recommended for those who are going to use their kitchen.

The sandtex finish looks just how it sounds. The texture looks a lot like rough sandpaper and provides a sophisticated look. It also resists fingerprints more effectively as compared to the more well-known options such as the #4, checkerboard, diagonal, etc. The Sandtex finish provides some sheen thanks to light reflecting from the texture itself, but this is subtle, and the pattern provides depth. As a full kitchen backsplash this looks absolutely stunning, and you can't go wrong with this pattern.
The checkerboard finish is two-tone and features alternating textures, providing an alternative to ceramic tile without the hassle of cleaning grout.

The two alternating finishes contrast each nicely for a classic look..
