To coordinate, take a color, veining, or fleck from the counter and find a tile
that works well with it. It's a good idea to invest around $20 for a color wheel to see which shades look good with each other. You can also match the two, for instance, by selecting a gray tile with a granite countertop or using a cream or beige tile with wood.
You might consider metallic silver backsplash tiles if you have slate counters and stainless steel appliances or gray-blue tiles with wood for added drama and contrast. For the latter, be sure whatever you choose also coordinates with the overall atmosphere, such as flooring and window treatments. But, again, you want to add contrast, not jar the design.
Tile is still the most popular for this element, and it comes in countless colors, designs, shapes, and sizes. This should also be the last element of your kitchen planning so you can coordinate appropriately with the overall room. If it clashes, the design will be confusing, and the eye won't know where and how to focus.
