I agree with Kris0218, it's weird how many readers don't want guests. I renovated my place thinking a lot about how I would have guests. Learned from my previous place: Bedrooms far apart to have enough privacy. Bathroom not too close to the dining room. I do stress a bit when I know people will come, I want everything clean, I want to give a good impression. But in the end, when they arrive isn't what is life all about sharing good time with good friends ?

Reality Check: Do You Really Like Having Overnight Guests

I agree with kariwk and suzee.
If you own, go with the real deal.
Tiling is not that hard and not that expensive.
I know it takes a lot of patience, but it's well worth it. I personally don't like temporary solutions, you are not building a theatre or movie set for one scene, it's your house and you will see it everyday.

I had the exact same challenge last week... I went with
White... Avalanche White to be precise.

here are just prior to grouting (the glue looks like grey grout):

after the Avalanche:

I wanted not to have too much texture because I already had a brick chimney next to the kitchen.

I'm happy with the result. But it was a tough decision.
Hope it helps someone.

good luck with you projects.

I also went with not brick pattern with the backsplash.

Don't forget to seal the grout, this way the white will not get yellowish in time if you opt for white.
