Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bob123 Easy project
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoJo Beautiful back splash
I did a lot of research and wanted a back splash for my kitchen that was easy to clean, ease of installation and good value. I LOVE this product. I have never done this sort of installation before, and I was able to install all the back splash in one day for an area that was 26 feet linear feet with a lot of outlets.
I read the tips that other people had posted and loved the suggestion of using poster board as a template. That saved me so much time and made the installation so much easier. The only suggestion I would make would be to use a wood chisel when cutting the outlet holes. I found scissors extremely difficult to use, but the wood chisel (with a lot of cardboard between the backspash and my cutting board) cut the outlet holes easily and they were even and made the corners really square. I have recommended this product to several people and received a lot of compliments. Absolutely love it.

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 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 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.

I used these to decorate my faux fireplace's surround. I used a box cutter and it was fairly easy to cut the backsplash tiles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1Happyhomemaker Great Idea!
I was tired of trying to wipe or scrub splatter of my walls and had been wanting a back splash in my kitchen for a long time. My brother-in-law put this up in their kitchen when they did a remodel and I liked it a lot. I decided to check into it. The panels are made of plastic although they look metallic. You have to touch it to believe it is not. Each panel is sold separately, which really adds up if you have a lot of wall space to cover. I decided to go for it anyway. I chose the design I wanted and bought the sliders for the corner and ends. I cut out all the holes for the outlet covers, switch plates, etc. . . by making a template out of paper and drawing it onto the back of the panel with a marker. I used some good, solid kitchen shears to do the cutting. I would NOT recommend using an exacto knife; it has the tendency to slip, or cut too far. I used masking taped to put up the panels where I wanted them to go after I had the openings cut out to make sure everything fit properly. My teenage sons actually installed them for me using the caulk. I turned out wonderful! Not only can I wipe the back splash down for easy clean up, it looks fantastic. It is exactly what I wanted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Great Look, Low Cost and Durable!
Used the white, matte finish for my kitchen back splash. Good option for a few years til we can do a solid counter top and better back splash. Easy to install with locktite adhesive, used exacto knife for corners, heavy scissors for long cuts. Used the optional end pieces and inside corner. Tip- glue those ends on before you add to wall. Caulking finished up nicely, and if you very lightly caulk the seams it makes them disappear more. Very happy and bright! Love the matte look, and sponges off nicely!!!
