Update Your Kitchen and Bath with Tin Backsplash Today
February 5, 2018
Has it been a while since you gave your kitchen a little love? For many homeowners, there is a fear of trying DIY projects because if things go wrong they will have to pay to fix it. This is a valid concern, but sadly, it steers many people away from ever trying something new. If you are looking for an affordable facelift for your kitchen, with minimal difficulty and high style, you definitely need to consider a tin backsplash.
Styles for Every Taste
Whether you are looking for an industrial sheen or obsessed with the French country look, American Tin Ceilings has something for you. With over 30 colors to choose from, and even more patterns to match, you will undoubtedly find the tile that will take your kitchen to the next level.
If you love all things industrial, or maybe just want to add some warmth to your kitchen, consider adding a tin backsplash in a copper hue behind your stove. If you want to keep it simple and perhaps want to avoid the tile looking too new, consider either the Copper Patina or the Copper Umber style in Filler 1 or Filler 2 patterns. This gives you more of an aged look and keeps the pattern simple and uncomplicated.
On the flip side, if you love bronze and want to make your stove the centerpiece of your kitchen, consider the Copper Translucent or the Copper Penny, which both offer a high polish and shine. For a more daring look, pair this color with tile pattern #30 or #36. For a more conservative and traditional look, try tile pattern #17, #35 or #37.
Don’t like copper or metallic? American Tin Ceilings has a large variety of white tiles that you can choose from to complete your classic look and keep things subtle and elegant. Whether you want a high gloss or a discreet shine, a new-looking bright white accent or an off-white back splash that blends right into what you already have, you will find exactly that in our catalog.
Match Your Kitchen and Bath
Did you know that a backsplash doesn’t just have to be in the kitchen? If your bath is also in need of an upgrade, you may want to consider our tin tiles to add some much-needed style here as well. While it is best to avoid installing the tiles in the shower or anywhere they would be directly in contact with water, you can install them around the sink and vanity area. Consider this solution in lieu of spending a small fortune on subway tile, especially if you are only looking to add some accents to your vanity and sink area.
Did you know that tin tiles have exceptional fire resistance? Once installed, the tiles add a much-needed flame resistance to your space that can actually deter flames from spreading for up to an hour. What does this mean for you? It means that you can install the tile to the back of your stove without fear of the tile being damaged by the heat or starting a fire. With minimal care, your tile will stay looking new for years to come, while protecting your wall from heat damage. Seeing is believing! Watch this video of our tin tile fire test.
The idea of installing your own tile is not something that gives everyone a warm and fuzzy feeling. If you are not a DIY dynamo, it is totally acceptable to hire a contractor to install the tile for you. However, if you are an up and coming weekend warrior, we have easy to follow installation videos to guide you through this uncomplicated process.
For backsplash installation check out this video, which can also be found on our webpage under the Resources tab - How To Videos – Backsplash Installation. If you do decide to have someone else install the tile on your behalf, be sure to share this video with them so that they can see the recommended method of installation for themselves. Doing this will save time during installations, and may save you a lot of money in the long run in case your contractor tries to justify extra costs for installation materials. Remember, time is money, and even though you do not want to do the work, that doesn’t mean you should have to pay excessively for someone else to do it.
The Possibilities Are Endless
Whether you like clean lines and high gloss, pops of color with big patterns, or rustic metals with patina finishes, American Tin Ceilings is sure to offer a finish you will love for years to come. Bring your style dreams to life without the strenuous installation or hefty cost of a full remodel, and get the peace of mind of fire safety to keep your kitchen looking beautiful while keeping your family and home safe.
