Metal Backsplash

Image of Metal Backsplash

Metal tiles have a modern look that work well in contemporary spaces, particularly when paired with today’s modern stainless steel appliances and fixtures. Consumers have many options in terms of materials, which include stainless steel, tin, copper, aluminum and the like.

Stainless steel backsplashes continue to remain popular among today’s contemporary-minded consumers. It’s easy to clean and resists scratches, and it won’t rust or corrode, which is perfect when in a wet environment like a kitchen. It’s available as flat galvanized sheets, embossed and with brushed or polished surfaces.

Stainless steel metal tiles can be custom cut to fit the appropriate space. This material requires special tools and a skill set that many Do-It-Yourselfers don’t have, so a contractor may be necessary to install it. Stainless steel tiles can also be found at many home improvement stores and cost around $10-$15 per square foot.

Traditional tin tiles remain popular as well because of the authentic look they bring for consumers who favor the look of kitchens of yesteryear. Tin is also less expensive than stainless steel and is fairly easy to install. Because they are heat resistant, real tin panels are a good option behind a stove. Care must be taken when installing a real tin product. Wear gloves to protect yourself from cuts from sharp edges. Tin is soft and dents easily, so avoid bumping or banging against it with pots and pans and other kitchen appliances.

Copper is another popular backsplash material. In addition to its unique look, it’s easy to clean and good for use around hot surfaces, like behind a stove. However, it can be damaged easily, like tin, because it’s soft. It also needs to be polished periodically because the natural oxidation process will turn it green.

Aspect Peel & Stick Metal Backsplash Tiles provide the radiant look of metal brought to life in an eco-friendly, affordable alternative to high-end installations. Aspect tiles are made from 60% recycled material and 99% of the waste in the manufacturing process is recycled. The 3x6 size tiles are available in four fantastic brushed finishes: stainless, champagne, copper and bronze.

Aspect Matted Tiles are available in honeycomb, mini Subway and squares styles in stainless and champagne finishes. These backsplash tiles consist of smaller separate pieces matted together. Three matted sections cover about a square foot.
