Tile Backsplash Design Ideas

Beautiful tile backsplash designs add instant style to your kitchen.

Give your kitchen a quick update with a pressed metal backsplash.

If you’re looking for a unique, low-cost way to update your kitchen, consider installing a pressed metal tile backsplash. Armstrong offers a range of patterns and finishes to match any décor, and they’re so easy to install, you can do it yourself in a weekend!

5 Tile Backsplash Design Ideas

  • 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.

Pressed metal panels are easy to install with construction adhesive and a few DIY tools. Check out this installation video to learn how you can give your kitchen a fresh look with a new tile backsplash. You can also view more photos of kitchen backsplashes in our photo gallery.
