I first purchased these for a very contemporary fireplace wall. What a statement it made! Could not have turned out any better. My fireplace hearth is black granite. The mantle is black with inlaid stainless tiles wrapping the front and sides and is supported by two black columns. The backdrop is a wall of these stainless tiles will alternating vertical and horizontal rows. Now I am doing the same thing for my kitchen backsplash. Black kitchen cabinets and stainless steel backsplash. These tiles are easy to work with and because of their size, they require fewer cuts. Recommend these highly.
Installed in a basketweave pattern as a kitchen backsplash, looks awesome. However cleaning it is just like any other stainless steel product, if if you don't follow the grain when you wipe it smudges, so our basketweave pattern gives me a headache when it needs to be cleaned. :( Otherwise it looks beautiful!
I don't normally care to write reviews but I feel compelled to let people know since there is only 1 review, so it'll help build credibility for this product. I am a picky person when it comes to quality of items used for home remodeling - i like high end stuff but have a budget of a mid-range product. i took a chance on this product and was pleasantly surprised by the quality. 1. this is a stainless steel plate that covers the porcelain backing, thick/sturdy tile panel 2. i have bought samples from other online stores but quality are not as good, i went to high end tile stores and they are three times the cost of the price shown here 3. i decided to take a chance on overstock, thankfully i was not disappointed. this item looks more expensive than it costs, belongs in the expensive store type i initially bought the thin/stick-on panel from the large box chain store but they were hard to place on the kitchen wall. this item is perfect and great quality. i bought schulter linear border to border it.

we fell in love with this backsplash after seeing it in a friends kitchen. she paid ALOT more for the peel and stick kind that you get at the local home improvement store. After a few weeks, her tiles started to fall off. These are thick sturdy tiles that need to be grouted. I recommend using a wet saw to cut them as a regular miter saw leaves burn marks. The wet saw did a great job!
