How did you find out about tin as a backsplash option?
"I love anything that is timeless and tin is one of those elements that stands the test of time. When I take on a project, I try to apply unique design elements and strive for that one of a kind result, whether it’s a kitchen, bath or any other space. After researching tin tiles on the Internet, I ran across American Tin Ceiling Company. I saw they had a section for backsplashes and the seed was planted. Their website offered a great deal of information and many of my questions were answered."
Approximately how much research did you do ahead of time?
"My client is a huge foodie and had purchased a large Wolfe range for the new kitchen. The oven is centered on the back wall and the backsplash is a glass subway tile, which runs horizontally along the granite countertops. This called for a prominent focal point to break up the horizontal line. I knew I liked the idea of utilizing a large tin tile over the range and complementing it with a series of smaller ones over the bar area - but I wasn’t sure if it would work. I contacted American Tin Ceiling and they were able to answer all of my questions and alleviate any concerns I had."
