We have used these brick several times both inside as a backsplash in the kitchen and around a wall unit fireplace and outside! Easy to work with and looks great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KPD VERY NICE PRODUCT, BUT THERE ARE SOME TRICKS TO A GOOD INSTALLATION
The product arrived a week later than promised, due to heavy snowstorm. All brick pieces were intact and none were broken out of thirty some boxes. The bricks are securely fastened to webbing too. Product looks exactly as advertised. I had these bricks professionally installed in two rooms of my home... on one long wall that spans thru both rooms. Looks awesome!
But you should be aware that the bricks are not always attached to the web perfectly straight, so when they go on the wall in a sheet the grout lines can be wavy and crooked. My contractor corrected the crooked pieces by cutting the webbing around the crooked pieces on all four sides, once the sheet was adhered to the wall, and removing the piece. Then he replaced the separated piece more in line with the others and inserted spacers to hold it in place. We used grey thin-set for the entire project and it looks great.
Project took four days to complete in each room (eight days total); two days to install the brick sheets and two days to grout them. We used a pastry bag to do the grout, otherwise it would have been a total mess.
Also be aware that your walls might not be level, straight, or flat. Mine were not, so there is a bit of a wave in the bricks because the wall is not perfectly flat. Overall, it is hard to notice this though, especially with the mirror and furniture in place.

When I bought my house the previous owner had, from floor to ceiling cork board on a chimney stack in the Master bedroom. Eww! Once I ripped it off it looked even worse. Although this was an expensive alternative it was well worth it. I used Omnigrip that worked well. I also used antique white grout and a grout bag with a 3/8" tuck pointer, just make sure you seal the brick first! I couldn't be happier. The corners were a bit awkward but I think it was a combo of part uneven wall and part uneven brick but to compensate the brick has a worn look so no biggie. I also used a diamond wheel and it cut the thin brick very easily. I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend this. I am not a contractor or a professional just someone not afraid to tackle a project so any do-it-yourselfer can easily do this. Delivery was on time and only had two bricks that were broken and two that were cracked out of 3 boxes of corners and 6 boxes of flats. Awesomeness in a box...its like I have a new room
