Re: Kitchen tile backsplash: how not to show your age
The key to longevity is to choose classic color, textures, and materials that never go out of style, and to use them appropriately. For instance, use white or off white tile for countertops instead of say avocado or pink that was so popular in the 60's and 70's and looked dated even when they were new and in vogue.
I think you're going to have a similar problem with glass tile. It may look fine when it's first done, but will be dated in a relatively short period of time. I also would not recommend trying to do any "temporary" type of tile installation. As much as you might not look forward to the remodeling process, you'll find that trying to gerry-rig something removable will be more hassle than it's worth. Keeping it sealed would also be a problem.
