Metal backsplash?

Has anyone used real tin/metal as a backsplash?

While we're probably a year away from a real "kitchen," we have the basic structure for cabinets in place, both on the drivers and passengers sides of the trailer.

Instead of covering the foil ray insulation between the "counters" and upper "cabinets" with fabric, I'm thinking of using 24x24" metal tiles, possibly in this pattern:
#124 Tin/Metal Ceiling Tile

I'll add some pictures after I get them uploaded.

I don't know if the real metal 24x24 tiles would flex enough to fit the curve--or if that would even matter as long as they were attached well in at least a couple of spots....

I am using a plastic material for mine... I bought mine in white since I plan on panting it, but they do offer the same kind of material in metal-look finishes.

Global Specialty Products Dimensions Faux 2 ft. x 4 ft. Glue-up Tin Style White Ceiling Tile for Surface Mount-209-50 - The Home Depot

It's not super flexible, but it will easily bend enough to go on the wall where I need it - I am planning on covering my cut edges with the flexible trim that scamp sells as cabinet edging for a cleaner look.

If you're crafty these would be flexible as well.

Very cool! Not sure if I want to take the time to do this for the Scamp, but I'm bookmarking the page to possibly use with my art students!

My wife installed a metal backsplash in our Scamp, I'll ask her where she found the tins ( I think it was home depot). She hand cut them with tin snips to fit the windows, here's a pic

Thanks for the compliments but my wife Courtney who also posts here as Courtney is the one responsible for all colors and designs. She did the entire interior herself. Shoot her a PM if you've got any questions about color codes or where she got things from

I'm going to try and do some kind of a stainless backsplash. How did you get the "rat fur" off the wall?

cutting white cabinet

Wow those are really nice wood shelves. How did you cut the openings at the bottom of your storage cabinet, just a normal saw or something special?

So glad you asked about a metal covered wall. I've been thinking of covering the "kitchen" backsplash in quilted metal yet I have zero metal working skills. Any idea?

We have found these at the Home Depot and will be using them in our kitchen area.... By rotating the tiles vertically, we'll be able to work them around the front corner of the trailer. The plan is to adhere them using an adhesive (a tile adhesive or our trusty PL adhesive) and then grouting using a flexible caulking compound. It's kinda pricey, though -- like $15 a square. And we're looking at 10-12 squares to take it along the driver's side around the curve an onto the front wall. But boy, does it look good with the counter!
