Beautiful! HomeDepot here I come - I'm going to paint away the harvest gold counter top & put up some of those slick tiles. Love the creativity on this site!

Finally found a great deal on an Airstream. Trailer is in good shape, just a few things we need to fix up & want to modify. We plan to make our 'vintage' look like the newer Airstreams.

tiles on shower wall?

I need something to go over the wood in my shower wall. Does anyone know if these beautiful aluminum tiles would work in there?
I LOVE the look in the kitchen.

The tiles I used do not lay flush on the back side. There is room to put 2 sided tape. With this in mind, I would be hesitant on using it in the shower. If your shower is like ours, there is little room to move around and bumbing into the walls happens on a regular basis. These tiles will dent in without to much of a hit. Now some of the others that are used here, I would think, you would have no problem with.

i would be a bit concerned about the sheet vinyl use around the stove, from the fire standpoint. It may or may not be a problem, but I thought I would raise the issue.

Wall tiles for kitchen

I have been considering the use of a product similar to what I utilized when refurbishing my bungalow. MBOSS is a manufacturer located in Ohio who makes a wide variety of pressed tin ceilings . . . in many finishes . . . most having a PVC coating over the surface for ease of care. They have a rolled sheet product that they refer to as "filler" that intrigued me as a nearly seamless means of creating interest as a backsplash or possibly even as a wall covering in a shower. I can imagine attaching it with a combination of adhesive and pop rivets. The product can be seen at this link.

I realize that it's been quite a while since your post about your aluminum tile in your kitchen area. Wondering, did you remove your upper cabinets before installation? About to get to working on kitchen in my motorhome, and find you upgrade quite nice!
Thanks, Derek

Hey Derek,
Thank you for the kind words The answer is no. There was no need in removing them. By the stove, the tiles tucked under the fan hood. By the sink, the valance is there, so I just went up to the cabinet, and on the side wall, there was enough room again to tuck them under the cabinet since the cabinet is not attached to that side wall. I did take off the window frame first to get them to fit around it nicely.
