Stainless Steel Backsplash

Stainless steel is made using a minimum of 10.5 percent chromium, the ingredient that makes the steel stainless.

Stainless steel is a popular material that’s been used in kitchens for many years. From appliances to backsplash, its contemporary, clean look makes it an attractive choice for homeowners.

This durable material is a particularly great option behind the stove or sink. A stainless steel backsplash is both stain- and corrosion-resistant. It can easily be wiped down with soap and water. Its surface also reflects light and can give the illusion of a larger space. If you opt to install a large sheet for your stainless backsplash, you don’t need to worry about grout or cracks, which can be hard to clean. Finally, unlike some other materials, stainless steel does not have to be polished.

There are some disadvantages to stainless steel backsplashes, however. Stainless steel can easily be scratched or dented. Food, grease and fingerprints also show easily on stainless steel and, although they can easily be cleaned off, you will be doing it frequently. Stainless steel costs around $20 per foot not including installation. The cost of stainless steel tiles, however, ranges from $40 to $200 a square foot.

If you like the look of stainless, but don’t want to pay the high costs associated with it, consider products that look very much like stainless steel, but don’t have the disadvantages that come with it. Aspect Peel & Stick Metal Tiles provide the radiant look of metal in an eco-friendly, affordable alternative to high-end installations. Featuring easy, peel and stick installation, and manufactured from 50 percent recycled materials, it’s a high-impact, stylish solution that adds beauty and value to your home. Available in four finishes, including brushed stainless, Aspect tiles also resist fingerprints and smudging.

Fasade decorative thermoplastic backsplash panels are another quick and easy way to add the look of stainless to your kitchen. Available in numerous traditional, contemporary and industrial looking styles, they are offered in a range of finishes, including those that mimic stainless steel. Fasade backsplash panels are impervious to water, impacts and stains and let you achieve a designer look at a fraction of the cost.
