Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amateur A few challenges, but beautiful.
I used these as a border in my bathroom, and they were relatively easy to put up. If you don't live 5 minutes away from a Home Depot that has all the accessories in stock, go ahead and order everything you might need, then return what you don't. I made 4 trips in 12 hours - to pick up the tiles & tape, to get adhesive because the tape didn't work, to get j-trim pieces because the panels weren't quite as easy to cut as I hoped and I had to disguise some ragged edges, and to get corner trim pieces because I realized that would finish out the look. I had a party a couple of weeks after completing the project and got lots of compliments. [I don't know why the photo is uploading sideways - sorry!]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liza164552 Great Product!
I installed this product and it looks great. It took about 3 1/2 hours due to needing to cut it to fit the area I was working with. I would recommend that you paint under the cabinets and over the counter with the darkest color in the backsplash as the directions suggest. This will ensure that you don't have any obvious spaces showing in the event you cutting is a little uneven. I used the polyurethane adhesive instead of the double sided tape. It holds great! Overall I'm very satisfied with the product and the installation was not complicated. I would recommend this to any one looking to update the look of their kitchen!

This makes a big change in the look of your kitchen. I refinished cabinets , hardware was replaced along with counter tops , sink and paint. I guess a complete make over but this item was a great finishing touch to bring everything together. After Mom seeing my new back splash area I am now going to have to put up in her kitchen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KMacPhxAZ Totally made the final touch on my DIY kitchen remodel!!
Easy to install, and looks great. I used double sided tape and it has been 2 years now and no problems. It was a last minute decision to add backslash after I repainted my kitchen cabinets. It made all the difference in the world in the final overall look. Have received MANY compliments!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jackie Product looks great and installed easily.
Originally I purchased this to go on the side of an island to cover a seam but realized the seam wasn't visible so decided to use it what it was meant for, a backsplash. It looks great, installed easily and I'm very pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty Cost effective and easy to install.
My wife and I bought this style/color backsplash as opposed to traditional tile/mosaic tile for a few reasons. We are not contractors nor have we ever installed tile backsplashes before. Also, the cost associated with tile backsplashes were approaching being cost prohibitive at the time we were ready to purchase the materials for a backsplash. These tin looking, plastic backsplashes were more wallet friendly and more geared towards inexperienced DIYers like us.
I made the cuts ahead of time, dry fitting them as I went along. Once I had all the cuts made I cut the J-Trim, (Internet # 100521680/Store SKU # 877498), the corner piece (Internet # 100521686 Store SKU # 877828) and did a secondary dry fit, trimming both the tiles and J-Trim to fit. Once I double & triple checked the cuts, I clued the trim pieces to a single tile of that piece’s one or two tiles that it would go on, and let sit for the 24 hours suggested on the adhesive. The next day I simply followed the directions on the back of the tiles, had our kitchen backsplash installed on the walls in under an hour. For me the time was consumed in making all the cuts, not in the actual installation.
*Note: I used a regular, SHARP pair of scissors to cut the tile and J-Trim, and a rotary tool for the corner piece. Being as these are thermal plastic and NOT actual metal, the tin snips suggested on the instructions are not necessary. Also I used the suggested adhesive (Store SKU # 908537) instead of the suggested double sided tape(Internet # 100521672 Store SKU # 877432). The tape might have been quicker, but the adhesive was forgiving in that once I placed the tile on the wall, I was able to maneuver it into a level position with the piece beside it. I personally prefer the idea of the adhesive vs. the double sided tape.
All in all, I am glad that we chose this product over the “real” tile for our backsplash. It saved us money in supplies and tools; as well as time in regard of the installation.
