Metal backsplashes are a very popular option in the kitchen, especially in those who have modern and contemporary interior design. A metal backsplash can be a unique focal point and it is also a very functional option. It is easy to clean and requires no major maintenance. However, there are several options to choose from when you decide on a particular material. Here are some of the most popular along with the advantages and disadvantages that come with their use.

Copper backsplashes.


For a coherent decor, match the copper backsplash with similar textures, surfaces and colors
A copper back wall would look best in a kitchen with a retro interior design. It is a soft material that is easy to shape and texture. Copper is also a lightweight material and this makes it easy to install. It is a great option for a DIY project. You can install it in tiles or in a single sheet. A copper upstand is also easy to clean, but it tends to discolour over time. It also rust easily and that doesn’t make it easy to maintain.

Stainless steel backsplashes.

A stainless steel in small tiles becomes an eye-catcher
Stainless steel is probably the best material for a metal backsplash. It is durable, heat resistant, easy to clean and maintain as it does not rust. In addition, stainless steel backsplashes are versatile and available in a variety of colors. They can be installed in a single sheet for a minimalist look in modern and modern kitchens or in tiles.

Brass backsplashes.

A tile brass backsplash has a unique classic charm that cannot be recreated with other materials
Brass is not exactly a great material to use for a backsplash. It’s not easy to clean, it rust easily and requires constant maintenance. Nevertheless, it is very popular and brass backsplashes have a unique charm. They are suitable for kitchens with classic interior design. If you opt for a brass back panel, you should know that it needs constant polishing and it takes a lot of work to stay clean. An advantage would be that it offers the possibility of being printed, stamped or given a sharp shine that other materials do not.
