Metallic tiles are popping up everywhere these days.

They’re most commonly found in kitchens for how well they complement stainless steel appliances. One elegant look is to pair metallic tile with
dark wood cabinets, creating the high contrast design that’s popular in interiors these days. On the other hand, white cabinetry mixed with metal tiles evokes an air of classic sophistication. If your kitchen is small, metallic backsplashes are your best friend. The reflective surface creates the illusion of spaciousness.

If your tastes are a bit more old-fashioned, another metallic option is a tin backsplash. This type of design is inspired by the tin ceilings that
decorated Victorian homes in the 19th century. Another high-contrast design, this style uses the juxtaposition of old and new to create a uniquely modern look.
