The aspect metal long and short grain stainless steel backsplash is a wonderful product. I remodeled my kitchen and choose this product for the look and it being a self adhesive product. I would recommend this product to anyone who is wanting a stainless steel backsplash with a side of flare!

after reconsidering my purchase and installation--I returned my purchase.
first reason, and while the tiles are attractive, there is absolutely no room for play at installation. by this I mean, no walls are "dead-on" square and once these tiles are placed you cannot remove them to make adjustments. if you want perfection in placement, these are not the tile.
second, I expected the tiles to be somewhat reasonable in price....once I bought them and was unsure of my decision to take a chance on their placement (by a pro) I realized you pay dearly for not having to grout them and the labor!
finally, cutting the tiles might not be a clean sharp edge, (if you like perfection) and the end caps are, in my opinion, cheap looking.

Really love this back splash. Very easy to install. Used a Dremel tool to cut around outlets.

I used this product to go over a cracked mirrored backdrop behind my cook top. It went on easily and looks great. Great value and appearance for the money.

It took my husband and I over a year to find this tile. Most come with a ceramic back which made it very difficult to get a nice clean cut on the metal. My husband said this was very easy to work with and to cut. We love the look and it's very easy to keep clean! Great product!

We wanted something that would accent the stainless steel appliances, and be low maintenance. It seemed the wife was always cleaning the white popcorn paint, and we were watching it slowly come off on the towels while cleaning. The builder wasn't exactly a pro when it came to drywall, so there were some areas that weren't quite flat. Looking through the local Home Depot we saw these. We looked at a couple other options, but thought these were the best choice.
I took my time, and did it over 4 days, about 2 hours each day. Cutting around the electrical boxes took the longest time. I had one section that took 40 tiles where there wasn't any electrical boxes, and had that section done in less than 10 minutes. The slow part came when I had to cut the tiles to go around the electrical boxes, for the finishing touches, and ends. I was going about 1 tile every 5-8 minutes for those areas.
They are a layer of stainless steel applied to about 1/8" of plastic with an adhesive backing.
1. They recommend using an adhesive when applying them over an uneven surface. Take that advice.
2. They recommend a chop saw. I took my time using a Dremel, and had no problems. The cuts were straight, and everything lined up perfectly.
3. They recommend removing the clear protective coating before installing the tile. I recommend keeping it on until you're done marking, measuring , and cutting.
When you are going around an electrical box with either a switch or outlet, make sure you cut the tile so they will rest on the tile once installed. Measure and cut the tile so it outlines the electrical box. Remove power from the circuit. remove the switch or outlet from the electrical box. Install the tile. Re-install the switch or outlet. restore power to the circuit. If you don't cut the tile so the switch or outlet rest on the tile, they will be about 3/16" recessed from the face of the cover plate.
After I finished the stainless steel tiles seemed a little dark. We cleaned them with glass cleaner, and it helped quite a bit.
Last thing I have to do is seal around the base where the tiles meet the granite countertop, and on the top edges. I installed the tiles on the kitchen window ledge behind the sink, so I have an outside corner there. I used white caulking to seal it, and it looks good. clear for the countertop, and white for the top edge, and it's complete.

The tiles were extremely easy to install. It would be nice to have a choice of half tiles so you don't have to cut them to get the staggered look. But, I love the finished product!

Happy with the finished project. It took a little longer to install than I anticipated but it was worth the effort. The light weight feature of the tiles as compared a ceramic tile was definitely a plus for me.
