My wife and I did our kitchen with the Silver. Looks great. Our cabinet contract was even impressed! Solid product. Will definitely use again.

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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elizabeth I love my back splash!
Very easy to install with great results. My husband and I were having a difficult time deciding on a back splash. We had looked at many different tiles and none of them seemed to be the right thing for pulling our kitchen together. We then discovered "facade" at home depot and we were sold. We purchased the cracked copper and are very happy with the end result. It adds a very warm feeling to our kitchen. We are going to purchase the matching ceiling panels to install over the island area of the kitchen. I have recommended this product to friends of ours who are looking to do or update a back splash area.

This easy project put the wow into the kitchen for only about $250.00. Cuts easily with tin snips, used the finish pieces for cut edges in the corners. Used the contact paper to cover switch plates and it looks awesome. Used the glue, have never trusted double sided tape.

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.
