Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Victor Looks Great Once it is all up!
Where do I begin? Let me start by saying that the product is great, the quality seems very good and the transformation it gave our kitchen is amazing. The panels look beautiful. They gave our kitchen a more modern look. It helped to that we changed our sink, faucet, and counter tops as well. What I did not enjoy so much was the installation. This is to no fault of the panels themselves, it is just that I had my work cut out for me with trying to cut around the panels to fit as precisely as I could around my kitchens window sill trim. At $20 each panel, I did not want to make any mistakes. I totally just winged it cutting the panel little by little until it fit as good as it could around the window sill trim. It was a painstaking process as the panels are not all that easy to cut. There were some small quarter inch to half inch gaps between the panel and the trim but it is not all that noticeable due to the fact that I bought a paint sample that closely matched the color of my panels to paint around the window trim, power outlets, wall corners, and base of the cabinets so try to hide any possibly gaps. And believe me, there will be some gaps once you are done cutting. I highly recommend you use sheers instead of regular scissors to cut the panels. When using your utility knife to cut the power outlet openings, pull the panel up and towards to a bit when cutting as it seems to help cut through the panel a little easier. I got better at cutting the panels as I went along. Also recommend using the corner trims for the corners of your kitchen walls and make sure to use plenty of adhesive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Looks great! Plan your installation thoroughly
I used multiple pieces of this to face my home bar. Product looks great when properly installed. Planning your seam locations and orientation are key. I found that the only way I could cut this due to the "wavy" shape was with a saw & finished the exges with a piece of sandpaper and a block to produce a quality edge finish. Tried to use the specified tape for installation and it all fell off a couple days later despite proper surface preparation. Reapplied with the adhesive caulking and it works perfect. Happy with the finished results. A bit costly but I factored that into the build up front so I was aware what I was going to spend ... less the tape failure. The tape DID stick VERY WELL to the plastic but not to other surfaces other than plastic. Would have preferred H.D. stock larger pieces to avoid seams.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnK Easiest backsplash ever
The material was easy to cut for a close fit in the corners. The overlap area created an almost invisible seam. The border pieces that covered the edges were also very easy to cut and arrange to created perfect corners. I would definitely use this product in future finishing work that I may have an opportunity to do in the future.

Despite the cost of this product, it equals the looks and elegance of glass tile when creating backsplashes. Because of the wavy feature, cutting with a sharp utility knife was not an option. I chose a large pair of snips used in installing vinyl siding to simply cut to size. When it came to making the holes for outlets, I used a Multi Tool reciprocating saw with a fine-tooth blade. I also chose to use clear silicone to affix the panels because I have used the adhesive suggested and found silicone allows more forgiveness when moving the panels in position with a cleaner clean-up residue within the seams. Starting in larger, common spaces over stoves and sinks are a plus, but can pose a challenge because these panels need to overlap. By using silicone, this too allows more freedom and slower drying time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WAVYFASADEGIRL WAVY FASADE BACKSPLASH
Thought these would be an easy backsplash project over existing stainless steel self adhesive tiles I did on 1/2 the wall and was too hard to finish. Kinda hard to cut because of the 3d waves themselves. Seams didn't line up perfectly behind stove since no walls are perfect, so it is slightly off and not matching. Totally messed up the right panel, and once you cut it, and it doesn't go well, now you have to throw that out and buy another panel for 20 bucks. Looks cute, but not the same qualilty as the real stainless steel subway pre-adhesive packets, they look much more expensive and beautiful. I will keep the waves for awhile, but they are so shiny, and modern, but a little cheap looking. The girl on the utube video for this company makes it look so simple, but she must have done it so many times to make it perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SM very easy to install
Beautiful and so easy to work with. No problems cutting and love that we could cover the outlet covers to match.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maepop Somewhat flimsy for the price but applied easily and looks great
Installed easily and looks great up but overall the price vs the quality is mismatched. It's a plastic flimsy material that as long as put of properly looks great but in comparison with real vs. faux the price just doesn't match.

I purchased the "tiles" at my local HD store. Instead of using them as a backsplash, I am installing them in my stairway landing wall as an accent wall. Due to the cost and the size of the wall I am buying a few at a time and installing as I go. Can't wait to see the full wall finished. Easy to cut and install. The adhesive tape sticks for a few days but will start to lift. I am using loctite all purpose adhesive to install and no problems with the tiles lifting.
