Pressed Tin Backsplash - About

Pressed tin panels, popular in the mid 19th century, as a low-cost way to imitate European plasterwork, has recently regained popularity as homeowners look for unique ways to add architectural interest and character to their homes interiors.

The unique texture and durability of pressed tin panels made them an excellent choice for a kitchen backsplash, and a great alternative to ceramic tile and caulk.

For architectural style on a budget, pressed tin is a wonderful alternative. Pressed tin, available in 48" x 24" panels, it is not prohibitively expensive, is easy to cut and install, and makes a vast improvement over a plain-painted kitchen backsplash.

Our pressed tin backsplash panels have an oil base and are sealed with coats of lacquer for long wear. They can easily be attached with liquid nails adhesive and do not require hardware. For more information on installation please read Installing pressed tin backsplash.

Because the average height of a backsplash is only 18", the 3" and 6" patterns are most often used for this purpose, as the smaller pattern provides a better aesthetic fill, but the 12" patterns can also be used. With styles ranging from Victorian to art deco a tin backsplash can add extraordinary style and sophistication to almost any décor.
