Homeowners were at first content to varnish their beadboard or other wooden walls, but as concerns with sanitation grew at the turn of the century they covered kitchen walls with glazed white tiles, usually 3" x 6" subway tiles. White tile was frequently used behind coal-burning ranges, where it made the wall easier to clean, so it was logical to extend the tile to the sink area. Painted or sculpted tiles played an important decorative role early in the 20th century, primarily around the fireplace, but weren't common in the kitchen until the late 1920s.
Onyx and Travertine are very premium and expensive stones. They are decorative in purpose and prone to cracking. Resins are used to make the tile strong and durable. They find their applications in bars, highlighter walls, bathroom walls and the interiors of high end residences etc. Onyx can be lit from behind to give a very calm and soothing effect.
