The Vintage Beauty of a Tin Backsplash: Metal Backsplashes with Timeless Appeal

Homeowners who love mixing materials and styles within the home, as well as homeowners looking to recreate some period kitchen designs, may find that a tin backsplash works well in their home. From Victorian homes with tin ceilings to contemporary homes with an eclectic feel, tin and metal backsplashes have timeless appeal.

What is a Tin Backsplash?

Tin backsplashes are comprised of hammered or pressed sheets of tin or other thin metals. Colored with a durable, powder coat in a large range of colors, they are available in countless styles and designs. The product is installed in sheets cut to the size of the area being installed and is available in a wide range of colors, textures, and patterns.

In addition to standard metal finishes, many tin backsplashes can be custom colored to match nearly any kitchen décor. Standard, Victorian colors are also frequently available readymade. Victorian color schemes were typically muted in color, making shades such as burgundy or forest green fairly available.

Patterns are generally made up of 6” “blocks” to fit into a standard, 18” kitchen backsplash. These patterns will usually interlock with one another to create an effect reminiscent of wallpaper.

Reasons to Use a Tin Backsplash

Homeowners looking for tile for a backsplash design may not realize that tin backsplashes are also available. For homeowners who would like to install the backsplash themselves, and would like to do so quickly, a tin backsplash can be installed with relative ease. The sheets can be easily cut and adhered to any prepared surface, making it an easier and cleaner job for homeowners hoping to do the work quickly.

Period homes, such as those with tin ceilings, can make use of a tin backsplash to compliment the rest of the kitchen design. Choose patterns which complement, rather than match other details for added depth and interest.

Homeowners who have eclectic homes with several styles may find that a tin backsplash can complement the rest of the kitchen design, without necessarily adding an additional look. Simply choose a simple pattern in a color that compliments the wall color of the rest of the kitchen. The backsplash will blend in and add depth and interest, not a clashing design.

For homeowners who like the look of metal tile backsplashes, but who do not live in contemporary homes, a tin backsplash may also be the answer. Even in a polished, natural finish, the patterns of a tin backsplash will not look out of a place in a traditional or transitional kitchen design.

For homeowners who would like a metal backsplash, but who do not have other metal in the kitchen already, choosing a tin backsplash in a color which complements the appliances, wall color of window treatments can be a great solution as well.

Tin backsplashes can work in nearly any kitchen design. Use them solely behind the cooktop, as a waterproof protection against splatters, or use them throughout the kitchen as a style element. However they are used, a tin backsplash is sure to add interest and detail to the home.
