Best places to buy tile for backsplash?

BlackAceOctober 7, 2012

Hello. We're to the point in our new construction where it's time to purchase the tile backsplash in the kitchen. We aren't planning anything fancy, probably just a basic ceremic or travertine 6x6 in a grid like what we have in our current home.

We'll need to have it installed as well. Since I've never shopped for tile before (the floor tile was purchased and installed as an option from our builder), my wife and I aren't sure where to start. We obviously don't want to get ripped off, either by the tile store or the installer.

Can you give us pointers as to where to start shopping for the best deals, and also counsel us on how to find a good installer--if not using the store itself?
