Adding backsplash tiles (new ones)

Posted by VK12345 (My Page) on

First post here.
We are converting our OTR microwave into a pure hood. As a result, there will be about 30inches (width) x 12 inches (height) area directly above the cooking range which will no longer have the existing backsplash. (We moved to the place a few months ago and the OTR microwave broke)

What are our options ? We have no idea about what tiles were used ? Can we (by that I mean a contractor) reuse some of the tiles (which could be carefully 'taken out') and use them as a border within which we could have some mosaic of sorts ? I have been looking for ideas on the web, but all I see are links about complete installs and nothing about the particular problem we are facing. Doing a complete install is not an option for us

Take pictures and head to a tile store to see if matching tiles are still being made...if possible, take a tile with you.

You may have to head to several tile stores as they will carry different brands...
