Creating a metal tile floor or backsplash in your home is an exciting way to express creativity and flair for design. Before you begin installing your steel or metal tile floor there are things to should consider to be sure your project comes out beautifully.


Consider the space you are installing metal tiles in. Are you creating a custom floor? If so, you may want to use bigger tiles. Also, it’s important to consider the subfloor. Will you have to remove carpeting, debris, or other old flooring?

If you are using your metal tiles for a backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom, you may have a bit more creative freedom, because you’re dealing with a smaller space. Similarly, steel tiles are so versatile you can use them indoors or outdoors.


Stainless steel tiles are available in a variety of finishes, so you’ll be able to completely customize the look you’re after. From mosaics to micro tile, if you can imagine it, you can create it! Stainless steel tiles are also available as accents and highlights, so you can mix and match your metals or other materials for a striking look.


Not only are steel tiles available in a variety of finishes, you can also choose your texture. From smooth texture, to matte, and even ridged you can create a slip-resistant floor or mix and match for a unique look that’s all your own.


Don’t let the installation of steel tiles deter you from your dream floor. Many metal tiles are now available in self-adhering format, making installation as easy and fun as designing your floor!

Planning and designing your steel or metal tile floor will allow you to totally customize your space. Mix and match, or keep it simple – you can’t go wrong with steel tiles.
