Q: I'm wondering where I can find this type of tile for my kitchen backsplash. It's sleek, modern and would look really great in my kitchen. Any ideas?

These narrow tiles are often expensive -- your best bet is to visit tile suppliers throughout your area and hope to find a discontinued or overstocked supply.
Shaw Floors has something similar, the tiles are a little wider and it is more of a "mixed texture" look....but love them!http://www.shawfloors.com/ceramic-flooring/Glass
Hi, They are great (but not cheap) and you can find them at Ann Sacks:http://www.annsacks.com/home.jsp?id=ann&source=google&mat=exact&cat=branded&kwd=ann+sacks
Actually we seriously considered doing our bathroom in these tiles just a different color. We saw them and price compared them to the ones we bought at Home Depot and Lowes. I know the big box stores are not very popular, but honestly, I loved the tile, they were local, they were not as expensive as tile stores and they look great.
Buytile.com might be a good place to look. This is similar:http://www.buytile.com/home.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=17&products_id=20980&szid=282

I found a narrow tile I really liked at our local Daltile store. Its called Lavastone (voguebay). It looks like polished concrete (or available in matte), and the line includes very narrow tiles.http://www.voguebay.com/asp/products_name.asp?product_name=Lavastone%20mosaicThe tile stores also have a lot of exciting options. Best of luck to you.
We recently purchased tile in this lay out from Home Depot. Ours is a mixed glass and marble, which may not be to your liking but I recall that they had all marble or all glass in this lay out as well for about half the cost that I had sourced it at at specialty tile stores.
I used the narrow tile in my kitchen, and was greatly helped by firstname.lastname@example.org prices, great selection.
btw: a picture of my kitchen tile is on the naturalstoneoutlet.com website: under testimonials, photos, linear, caymen: my kitchen is the second photo ---you can see the countertop, cabinet, some pottery, and the caymen tile in a linear pattern.
Lots of tile manufacturers call this shape listellos - might help find some bargains.
Pratt & Larson carries narrow tiles too
Try www.glasstilestore.com... they have a big selection of skinny tiles.
Thanks, everyone! I will check out all of your suggestions!
