A vertical extension to a counter, backsplashes have become immensely popular for kitchens and bathrooms in the past decade and with all the great benefits they provide, it’s easy to see why. Originally created to protect the wall from accidental splashes of water, homeowners now view them as an aesthetically pleasing accent piece that begs for creativity. Check out some of our top reasons you need a tin backsplash over any other kind of tile.
Brighten the kitchen in a fresh, modern way with a tin ceiling tile backsplash.
Made from T1 grade tin plated steel, tin is fire resistant —a characteristic most other backsplash materials don’t offer. As seen in the video, we have tested our tin under a 1,000 degree flame and although the tin did bubble, it withstood the harsh temperature for over an hour — more than enough time for you and your family to safely escape in case of a fire. To put this in perspective, a typical household fire burns at 800 degrees and would cause most other materials to collapse from the heat.
It’s Easy to Clean
The moisture-resistant tin is also a perk for those daily messes you encounter within the kitchen or bathroom. Despite the humidity in or outside of your home, your tin ceiling tiles are resistant to rust or mold, making it perfect for long term use., As the tin works to protect your walls from splatters and splashes, you can rest easy knowing our finished tin tiles can be cleaned with just a little mild soap and water.
Tin ceilings were originally used as an alternative to ornate and expensive plaster ceilings during the Victorian era. 100 percent American-made, our tin ceiling tiles come in a variety of colors and patterns. The timeless and eye-catching designs are perfect for homeowners who wish to accentuate some of the most overlooked areas of their homes.
It’s Easy to Install by Yourself
It’ll take just a couple hours to install a tin backsplash — and you can do it yourself using Liquid Nails; no wood required. Like the other tin tiles installations, the panels can be cut using tin snips to fit in any small space or crevice.
