One option for a metal backsplash is tiles shaped like bricks and placed in a geometric design to mimic the layout of traditional bricks. These metal tiles offer a simple design that complements a contemporary kitchen area. Other options include reclaimed tin ceiling tiles that are repurposed to serve as a backsplash.

Another interesting option for metal backsplashes is to create a fun mosaic pattern with an assortment of metal tiles in various shapes and colors. This type of backsplash is a great option for someone who has a bit of an artistic side and likes a do-it-yourself project.

Perhaps, the best feature of any metal tile backsplash is that it will blend well with most wall colors and design themes, ranging from a modern kitchen decked out in stainless steel appliances to a rustic space complete with an island made from reclaimed barn wood.
