Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToddandErnie Looks great, but it is definitely a project.
These tiles look fantastic once installed, but make sure you allow enough time to do the project. They are NOT as easy to cut as you might think, so if you have a lot of outlets and/or nooks, you might want to hire someone or be prepared w/ some extra material.
I was able to do the job myself, however, and did not need an assistant. We chose to utilize the trim pieces in a little different application than they recommended, but you definitely need them as the edges of the cuts can get a little rough. Based on other reviews, we used the glue as the tape sounded iffy. I did end up spraying the glue w/ water, as recommended, to speed curing of the glue, but having not done it before, I don't know how necessary that was.
I forgot the "notching" instructions for where 4 tiles come together until about halfway through the job. I can't tell that it helped a LOT on the 2nd half, but I'd definitely try and do that differently were I to start over. You definitely get the hang of it as you go along, so don't get frustrated at the very start.
Overall, it was a fairly easy project as it took me about 4-5 hours total, looks great and cost thousands less than if I had someone else do it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sugarsue Great addition to our kitchen remodel
When we were looking at backsplash materials to compliment our new granite countertops, we did not want conventional tile with its grout lines. We were looking for something reflective, but not mirrors since we have appliances on that countertop. The Fasade crosshatch silver finish seemed perfect, but we were undecided about the pattern. We ordered three different patterns and chose the miniquattro. After living with it for several weeks, we couldn't be happier. The pattern changes depending on the viewing angle. We get the effect of reflective tile with no grout lines. And since it comes in large pieces, it was much easier and less expensive to install than tile. Our painter/paper hanger used the recommended adhesive and put it up in no time. She even managed to cover a large hole from a removed intercom with the material without patching it first with sheetrock. We also chose to use the border pieces for a more finished look. We like the look so much, we were sorry we had to obstruct it at all with the appliances. I wish I had a picture to show how great this product looks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nesss one of the easiest ways to redo your kitchen
these look cool and aren't very hard to cut with scissors. if you use a tube of silicon adhesive it works better than with tape because you can get the panel flat to the wall and slide it into place exactly where you want it to be. the only that could be better is that it could come in larger square panels, and with a mark of where to line them up on the overlap to make it even easier, but still this is a good product and simple to use although a tad expensive for molded plastic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oomom Easy to install, but seams can be an issue without care.
This reflective surface has enhanced the laundry room where it was installed. I am very pleased with the effect and the cost.
