Older apartment units in big cities often stick with classic tile for backsplashes, like white subway tile seen above.

Anna Marie Fanelli, Showroom Owner: In Manhattan, all the pre-war buildings like 3x6 white subway or stone tile with some accent detailing. In larger newer buildings, the look is very contemporary such as bamboo mosaics or waterjet patterns and glass in any format.

Verdict: There are no set rules for designing a backsplash for small kitchens in big city apartment buildings. The designs can range from classic to modern.
