Has anyone used Metal subway tiles?

Looking for creative, alternatives for our interior walls. Ran across metal subway tiles, but have concerns. Any thoughts or ideas?

They work fine in brick and mortar, but I would avoid them in a commercial kitchen where grout is a pain in the butt. Quilted stainless with a diamond pattern would be a much better option.

Well it doesn't use grout, it is a waterproof adhesive. I know stainless is the most common, for good reason. I just think there have got to be some other options out there. At this point, I am going with stainless that has a brushed diamond pattern for the hot side, but would still like something a bit more fun and cost effective for the cold/service side.

Well if nobody is going to say it, I guess I will...
Questions like that are best posed to your local authorities.
This one is probably a health dept issue.
Plus any jurisdictions that you plan to operate in. ( other towns/counties ) 
 
Unless they are super slack on their rules....most want to see the standards....
Smooth, easily cleanable, bright colored, as seamless as possible.
 
If they stick with the standard rules....nobody gives a flyin rats patootie about looks and style.
It's all about rules, safety, health safety, fire safety.
 
So, stainless, or aluminum, or frp.
As much as I like to color outside the lines..... never mess with the guys that can make the difference between being on the road, or not.
 
Save your creativity for your exterior wrap, and your food.  IMO

Go with patterned stainless steel.
