Tin backsplashes are typically made from sheets of tin that have been pressed with a decorative, ornate pattern. In a manner that is similar to tiling a floor, these tin squares are cut to fit the size of a backsplash and then mounted onto a wall using an adhesive or tacks. The end result is a charming and gorgeous backsplash area.

While tin tiles can certainly be purchased at many home decorating stores, some people choose to use repurposed and reclaimed tiles that come from a home's ceiling. Many tin tiles come in a silver or copper finish, but they can also be primed and painted to better match a kitchen design.

Other tin backsplash ideas include corrugated tin or tin sheet rolls that can be cut to match the size of a backsplash area. The wavy, unfinished look of corrugated tin will pair well with a modern or rustic kitchen design, while tin sheet rolls are an interesting option for people looking for a more artistic effect. These rolls can be left flat, but they can also be hammered with a variety of tools to create a design of your choice.

Of course, faux tin tiles can also be purchased at home improvement stores, giving the look of tin while providing a less expensive option for a budget-conscious kitchen design.
