6 Ways to Use a Tin Tile Backsplash

Read about ideas for incorporating a tin tile backsplash into your home design.

When you cover your ceiling with richly patterned, stamped metal, suddenly everyone is looking up! The luster and shine of steel, brass, copper, and chrome are not just for the ceiling anymore. Metallics and mixed metals go with every design trend, so tin tile backsplashes are fashionably showing up, not only behind the kitchen counter, but also on walls, cabinet faces, and more.

1) The wall area surrounding sinks needs to be protected from water drops and splashes. Stainless steel tiles are the best option for a tin look backsplash. They are easy to wipe clean and maintain and, unlike ceramic tile, there’s no grout to support mildew. For this area, choose tiles with a smaller repeat pattern that will look in proportion to the space between cabinets and counter. In addition, a tin backsplash introduces textured interest to the kitchen and fits any style – from modern to retro, and Victorian to farmhouse.

2) In the bathroom, add tin ceiling visual behind a pedestal sink or stand-alone bathtub. Select a finish that’s not too shiny, so you won’t be bothered by harsh reflections from light fixtures in a small space. 

3) Bring your ceiling down to eye level. Use tin ceiling tile visuals to add dimension to entryway walls or a single wall in the kitchen or bathroom. Hang a mirror on your metal wall for drama and a more open look.

4) Give your cabinets and interior doors a face lift by inlaying paneled areas with a tin tile backsplash. Metal backsplash sheets are a beautiful and affordable solution when you want a kitchen makeover, but can’t change everything at once.

5) Cover the area above a kitchen island or breakfast bar with decorative metal tiles for a custom-designed look.

6) In the pantry, tin look tiles on walls and around shelving present a decorative yet easy-to-clean surface in an area prone to spills. 

Whether you find them headlining the ceiling or playing a supporting role elsewhere in a room, tin tile backsplashes are a real scene-stealer!
