Make a metallic statement with Armstrong's Metallaire panels. Originally created to give the effect of a vintage tin ceiling, the panels are easily adaptable as backsplash and feature wall coverings. The panels measure 24-by-24-inches and install with adhesives in wall and backsplash applications; 24-by-48-inch sizes are available for nail-up installation. The finished effect can tie together multiple metal finishes in spaces like kitchens

, and can add visual interest that paint or wallpaper can't match. Choose from chrome, copper, brass, lacquered steel, and white finishes. Average per-square-foot pricing varies from about $5 for white panels to about $10 for copper finishes. Starting prices for backsplash panels are $13.50 per square foot on average.
