1. Coordinated Look

If your kitchen ceiling already boasts the beautiful look of tin tiles, bring that same warm ambience down to eye level with a tile backsplash made of decorative metal. Create a coordinated look by selecting a matching finish, or mix it up with a contrasting finish such as stainless steel. Armstrong’s Metallaire decorative metal ceiling tiles come in a backsplash option, but you can also use 2’ x 4’ ceiling panels.

Add visual energy by installing your tile backsplash along the entire length of the counter. Choose a smaller pattern in the same finish behind the sink and stove to distinguish these areas from the surrounding panels.

With under-cabinet lighting, a pressed metal tile backsplash gives your room extra sparkle. You can achieve different effects by the pattern you choose.

A metal tile backsplash works beautifully in a room with dark wood cabinets by creating a visual break between the upper and lower storage areas. In a kitchen with white cabinetry, a pressed metal tile backsplash adds a different texture to the space.

Install metal panels diagonally to create a lively quilted pattern in a country kitchen. A 6-inch or smaller pattern provides a better visual than a larger pattern. Use tin snips to cut panels as necessary.
