These days it's the addition of stainless steel appliances that can help give a kitchen an updated, modern spin. The surface is not only contemporary, but it's also easy-to-clean, making it an ideal choice for a kitchen backsplash. Keep in mind that a stainless steel backsplash can be used both at the sink and the stove, and it can work well alongside a stainless steel vent hood with a quiet kitchen exhaust fan.

Sleek Stainless Steel Backsplash

Stainless steel tile backsplashes come in a variety of sizes and styles. While some tiles are simply smooth, others are embossed with an artistic design, like floral or diamond patterns. The tiles allow for more flexibility in how you choose to arrange your design. While some people like to stick to a straightforward installation, others have fun creating a mosaic with stainless steel tiles in various finishes.

One of the benefits of using stainless steel tiles for a backsplash instead of a sheet of stainless steel is that the tiles are often less expensive. The tiles can be easily installed with a tile adhesive. If it is necessary to cut the tiles to fit a certain area, then you will have to use a circular saw with a blade that has been designed to cut metal. Be sure to wear protective eyewear and gloves.

In a budget-conscious kitchen remodel, consider faux stainless steel tiles, which will give you the desired look of stainless steel without the high price tag.
