Metal quilted backsplash or metal tiles? Kitchen backsplash

The last time I posted on here was about 4 years ago and you guys were great! I hope you guys can still help, as this is still tile, but metal.

This is the metal quilted material that can be bought in sheets. Cost is around $120 for a 30"x30" sheet.

This following is a quilted material made by Fasade, imitation of the above, I think made of out plastic possibly, but looks real, and can be ordered at home depo or lowes. But, I'm told can warp from the heat, and it would be going behind a stove. This isn't metal, but looks like it. Super inexpensive, like $19 for a 18"x24" piece.

Lastly, these are peel and stick metal tiles. No grount needed. Most use adhesive to attach and reviews are good. Box of 48, which does 6 sq feet is like $25, also affordable:

Have any of you used any of these or have any suggestions?

The problem with the tiles: they scratch easily and the cleaning can be a nightmare. Yes, they look great in staged photos but are often regretted once installed. Get a sample and see how easily it scratches.

For when DIY isn't such a good idea...

Thanks. The last two pics I've read the reviews on and they supposedly don't scratch easily, brushed finish, like stainless appliances. The first pic, which is the sheets of actual stainless, I'm not sure about.

I recently did a customers kitchen backslash with stainless steel tile. I was really surprised how far the price had come down on these. They bought 35 sq ft of 4x4 stainless steel tile for 1.17 each included shipping and had them in 2 days. 315 tiles x 1.17 = 368.55 for the product. They can (should) be installed without grout and come on a cork backing that simply is glued with adhesive.

I was impressed how much bigger that tiny apartment kitchen looked after we put up the steel tile. I want to see lots more of these, they are very unique and very cool.

e got the tile online from stainlesssteeltile.com

They get 2 thumbs up from me

Very cool! Did you take any pics?

The last pic I posted in my post is metal tile 4x4, $26 a box (48 tiles), which comes to .55 each. Reviews on the site look good. see below.

Do you or anyone else happen to have installed pics? I'm going to start the tiles right on top of the counter. Do I need to have any gap, or can they just be on the counter? These type of tiles don't use grout.
