Metallic decor is one of those trends that will never go out of style: brass, copper and silver accents can spice up any interior, from industrial to art deco. If you want to add a chic touch to your kitchen, go for a gorgeous metallic backsplash. Do you need ideas? Here you are!
Metallic tiles make your kitchen chic and glamorous! You can choose from brass, copper and silver tiles. We strongly recommend choosing copper if it matches your kitchen color scheme as copper is on trend and looks classy. Tiles themselves can be hexagons, squares, or whatever you like. Remember, geometry is another hot trend. So why not rock geometallic tiles to kill two birds with one stone? For a more refined look, try pressed pewter tiles with a metallic finish. They look very noticeable because of the texture and pattern.
Metal sheets give your kitchen a sleek, modern look. These can be brass, copper, and stainless steel sheets, and you don't have to cover the entire wall - just rock one sheet. Rock drawer handles in the same color and finish for a nicer look. If you don't want tiles and are not sure how to make a metal backsplash without tiles, you can also make a metal backsplash out of penny tiles or real pennies - that would be cool!
