Try Tin for back splash: Chrome, steel, copper, brass: these are just a few finishes that give your ceiling (or walls) a look that recalls rural eating establishments of the early 20th century. A plethora of patterns exists, too. You can put individual tin squares on drywall, plaster, or drop ceilings. If you install the tin yourself, use cone-head nails so you are less likely to pound them throu Good Ideas, Green Wall, Cute Ideas, Home Improvement, Patterns Exist

A very inexpensive and cool idea. Plastic tiles that look like a tin ceiling found at Homedepot. Use adhesive to apply to the wall. Add texture and design to the kitchen. I'd love to do this to the entire kitchen wall between the cabinets and countertop! It adds pop. I bet you could do this in an apartment with command strips.

I love glass mosaic tiles but these purple ones add a great touch of color while brightening up the dark cabinets and counter tops. I want my dream house to have color every where but not over the top
