Faux-Metal PVC Backsplash Rolls
Tin or aluminum backsplash tiles aren’t particularly hard to install, but you can make it even easier by using faux metal tiles sold in a big, continuous roll. These rolls are 25 inches high, the perfect size to reach from the counter to the bottom of the cabinets.
Rolls range from 15 to 30 feet long. Even though they are made of PVC plastic, this product has a metallic finish and is available in look-alike copper, aluminum, tin, brass, and other metal-style finishes. Because this is not real metal, you can easily cut it to size with a pair of scissors. It is applied to the wall with adhesive.
Rolls 25 feet long cost between $115 and $150, though shorter rolls are available. This price does not include the cost of the adhesive.
Since this is continuous-roll plastic, it’s one of the easier backsplashes you can install. Also, because there are fewer seams, there is less of a chance of water leaking through the backsplash to the wall.
When applying any kind of thin large-format roll material, it can be difficult to eliminate warps and bulges. The trick is to plan ahead, making sure that the material is precisely cut before you place it on the wall. Then, use a paint roller with a dry cover to press the material flat as you unroll it.
