Backsplash: Little subway tile on mesh or bigger individual subway tiles?


We finished our kitchen remodel a while ago and we are finally getting around to putting up the backsplash. We found 2 that we really like, they are a beige natual stone looking tile in a subway pattern. There are 2 of these, the smaller one is a 1x2 on a mesh backing and the other is a larger, maybe 2x4 and are individual tiles.

We like them both equally (they are the same tile) and figured I'd try to find out if there are factors that make one significantly harder to do than the other (first backsplash for both of us). Particularly our concern was cutting for the corner walls etc.

The job is pretty straightfoward: one 2' section, one 12' section and one 6' section with a window in the middle of the 12' section.

i would go with the 2x4 tile. if you haven't done any tile work they would be easier to install going around outlets and switches.

I was trying to envision the obstacles I would encounter during this project. Outlets and switches definitely came to mind!
