Michelle and Russ Make a Splash with a DCT Real Aluminum Decorative Backsplash
Written by Milan Jara on 13th May 2013
Our customers, Michelle and Russ Volt from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, have been kind enough to share their experience installing our 0607 Delicate Daisies real aluminum decorative backsplash as part of their kitchen remodeling project.
So What Exactly Is a Backsplash?
A backsplash is a protective surface installed between appliances or kitchen or bathroom sinks that not only makes the wall behind them easy to keep clean but also adds beauty at the same time. Backsplashes catch water drops, food splatters, and much more, making clean-up much faster and easier.
Our real metal backsplashes are made of rust-proof aluminum and solid copper, which usually cleans easily with a damp soapy cloth. For greasy splatters, it is also safe to add a cleaner with degreasers such as Formula 409. For our copper tiles, you can use a commercial copper cleaner or make your own by combining 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts plain table salt.
Delicate Daisies Aluminum Decorative Backsplash Found on DCT Website
Michelle and Russ looked for the perfect aluminum decorative backsplash at several local stores with no luck. Then they went to our DecorativeCeilingTiles.net website and found exactly what they wanted! The couple chose our 0607 Delicate Daisies for both its beauty and its practicality.
Not only were they pleased with the availability and delivery time, but they were excited to see the great quality of our products. Our real metal backsplashes are made from sturdy aluminum. They are not only strong; they’re rust-proof as well. They even carry a “Class A” fire rating for your safety.
It’s Your Choice
The Volts chose our classic Delicate Daisies pattern to brighten up their kitchen, but we offer a wide variety of patterns, colors, and finishes to suit any decor, from the rustic 0512 Gwen’s Cabin to the nostalgic 0610 Grandma’s Quilt to the intricate floral WC 80 Fleurs de Lis and even the lifelike WC 50 Snakeskin.
And if you still can’t make up your mind, you can even order a sample pack that includes several different patterns and styles.
These backsplashes are available in two types: a roll or 24 3/8″ x 18 3/8″ sheets, each with a 6″ x 6″ repeating pattern. Each type is available in glue-up or nail-up versions and can be easily cut to fit any space with ordinary household scissors.

With just a few simple tools and accessories, the Volts were able to complete their installation in only about five hours. They have kindly contributed a YouTube video with helpful how-to instructions and tips for tools and installation.
