With the new year, we often see different home improvement projects being considered. Home renovations and upgrades are good for adding value to a home in the new year, as long as you have been able to find the right inspiration. Metal ceiling tiles are a good choice when you want to update, transform, or refresh a room. Here is a look at how you can change the look and feel of a kitchen or a bathroom with a new metal backsplash.
If you found inspiration in early 20th Century taverns, then you may want to consider how a tin tile backsplash in your kitchen can feed off that design. A simple tin backsplash with a more tavern-like design can make the perfect addition to any kitchen without detracting from the rest of the décor.
If you choose a copper backsplash, you will find that it goes well with most cabinet colors and can offer a touch of warmth to the kitchen. If you have bold cabinetry, a copper backsplash can also help you create a more contrasting look.
If you want a more subdued look, you can opt for a blank backsplash without a pattern. A blank tin ceiling tile that is unstamped can create a stunning effect in the kitchen and complements your other décor very well.
Tips and Tricks
When choosing and installing a new metal backsplash, we have a few tips and tricks that might prove helpful.
Your Layout. Every backsplash is different and some may require more cutting than others. Always measure the area before ordering the metal tiles to ensure you are getting what you need for your new metal backsplash and to keep the cutting to a minimum.
Cutting the Tile. When you do find yourself having to cut the tile, you want to make sure that it is done right. Only use a blade that is meant for cutting metal.
Installing the Backsplash. Manufacturers will often recommend the best adhesive to use for metal ceiling tiles; however, you will find that the most recommended will likely be silicone or a urethane-based adhesive. Always follow the directions when installing the tile.
