Suggest that if you have a broken tile that you take a piece to Lowes/Home depot/Menards/etc and match it. Fairly easy to remove the tile using a multi function tool. (cheap one sold at Harbor Freight either in store or one line)

I't be great if someone would describe the procedure for removing the cracked tile; picts would help. I've been avoiding the issue for fear of breaking the surrounding ones.

Dal Tiles were originally installed, but like all tile products, good luck finding a match. I've installed their tiles for years and have watched the colors change shade throughout.

Individual tiles can be removed by cutting the grout away, around the whole tile, then shattering it and prying out the pieces. Be sure to cut deep enough into the mortar bed that the adjacent tiles don't crack when demolishing the intended tile. A small grinder or Dremel tool works well for the cutting.

If color match is a problem, you might try what folks do when they need to patch a small piece of carpet (cannabilze from an inconspicous place like a closet). If it is just 1 or 2, take out a couple old tiles from a place like a closet or bathroom and use them to replace the broken ones in the galley area so you have a good match. Then the new, "off color" ones go in the bathroom (or wherever you took the old ones from). Of course it doubles the work (more tiles to remove) but it would prevent having a mismatch in an area where you might see it all the time.

D&J:

I'm not sure one can remove any tiles from another area without breaking them. Assuming they were properly mortared in, they ought to break before the mortar does.
