Purchase Enough Tiles at a Time
Please consider 3-5% cutting loss and purchase enough tiles at a time to make sure they come from the same batch to avoid slight color difference.
smooth ceramic tiles backsplash, smooth glass tiles backsplash, acrylic wall panel, pained gypsum, wall linoleum, stainless metal, mirror, laminate, wallpaper (if some corners are peeling, just peel them off and install tiles over them).
oily wall, brick wall, stucco wall, stone wall, unfinished wall (gypsum or plaster), unpainted plywood.
Wall & Tile Temperature
The temperature of the wall and tiles should be at least about 70°F for 12 hours before installation and 24 hours after installation. This is very important because if wall and tiles are cold, the tiles will not stick well. During the winter, the wall temperature is usually lower than room temperature so make sure that your walls are warm.
Press All Grout Lines Firmly
Make sure you press ALL grout lines firmly, and try NOT to touch the adhesive side as much as you can.
Use Extra Spray Adhesive or Super Glue
The tile need to be installed over clean and sleek surface. Please note that rough surfaces such as porous wood, embossed ceramic tiles or textured wallpaper are not suitable to install; NOT all the latex/repainted walls can be installed directly, for latex or repainted wall, the 3M Spray Adhesive is recommended.
