Stainless Steel Backsplashes
Just like the stainless steel appliances that have become popular in today's kitchens, the backsplash is a perfect area for giving a space a fresh, modern look. Plus, the surface is easy to clean and durable, making it a backsplash all-star.
Stainless steel backsplashes come in a wide variety of options, ranging from small interlocking tiles to large sheets of stainless steel panels that have been embossed with artistic designs. Tiles can be arranged to create a classic mosaic pattern that gives off a sophisticated look, rounding out a kitchen that banks on simplicity as a design focal point. On the other hand, a rugged stainless steel backsplash with raised and scratched areas can be the perfect choice for a modern kitchen that could use a bit of flair.
Faux stainless steel backsplashes are also available for the budget-conscious kitchen remodeler. These options are available at home improvement stores and can typically be installed for approximately $50, depending on the size of the backsplash area. These tiles are also available in other finishes, like copper, and embossed designs that are similar to those seen on tin tiles.
Keep in mind that stainless steel backsplashes can be easily wiped down with a regular household cleaner and sponge or towel.
