Tired of traditional backsplashes? Sure, ceramic tile is a classic, and marble is oh-so-trendy, but if you're a statement-making kind of person you're probably looking for that little something extra. And nothing amps up the drama faster than a brilliant metal tile backsplash, reflecting light and brightening up even the darkest spaces. Not only does it look incredible, but it's also easy to clean and durable — it won't stain, chip, burn, or crack unlike ceramic or porcelain, according to HomeAdvisor. Scroll on for six inspired metal backsplashes that are dripping with industrial glamour. Who knows, they may even convince you to make the switch.


1. Dazzling Herringbone

We are drooling over the stainless steel herringbone tile backsplash in this swanky kitchen designed by Coats Homes. The light wood exhaust hood and Viking range paired with white marble countertops is a culinary dream come true.

2. Pressed Tin

A metal backsplash doesn't necessarily mean metallic. Lauren from Bless'er House used white tin tile to upgrade her farmhouse kitchen backsplash to something that works better with her brown granite countertops and white cabinets. Snag the same look from Home Depot.


3. Mixed Metal Finishes

This contemporary all-white kitchen is beautifully on-trend thanks to a mixed metal finish backsplash. The geometric-shaped, stainless steel mosaic tile features both matte and polished finishes creating a dynamic visual effect. Get the look here.


4. Dazzling Subway Tile

Opt for a metallic take on classic subway tile, like this white kitchen designed by Middlefork Luxury did. The stainless steel backsplash acts as the perfect backdrop, illuminating any and all culinary magic. Grab a similar option from Lowe's.



5. Mini Mosaic

A counter-to-ceiling stainless steel backsplash gives this mostly black kitchen a glistening face-lift. The warm glow from the suspended industrial cage lights reflects off of the mini mosaic tile creating surprising depth and dimension. Consider a similar option from Merola Tile.


6. Bronze Beauty

Blue kitchen cabinets and bronze mosaic tile amp up the drama in this strikingly modern cook space designed by Cravotta Interiors. The shimmering metal tile backsplash adds an opalescent quality that blends well with the warm wood flooring, dining table, and eye-catching pendant light.
