These peel and stick metal tiles couldn’t be easier to install. Unlike traditional metal or ceramic tiles, with Aspect there’s no grout, glue or adhesive needed. You can literally peel the backing off the tiles and stick them to whatever surface you want. (Okay, there’s a bit of surface prep that might be needed, but basically that’s how it works. See the installation instructions for more information.)
Installing Aspect Metal tiles is an easy project that will give your space a modern shine and make your neighbors jealous. Below is a quick overview of the installation process. We recommend before beginning your project that you read the general installation instructions or download the full Aspect Tile Installation Guide (pdf).

Simplified Installation Instructions
Plan – There are many tile patterns, from basketweave to herringbone to stack bond. Choose the design that best fits your style and décor.
Lay out & measure - Measure the area to be covered. Lay out the entire project on a flat surface, like a table or the floor before installing the tiles to be sure you have enough tiles and your design is correct. Using a chalk line, create at least one vertical and one horizontal reference line to guide tile placement.
Install Tiles – With proper preparation you can just peel and stick the tiles in place (For more information see Installation method 1 on the General Installation page.) Otherwise with minimal preparation you can add a small amount of adhesive to the tile back and install it. The recommended adhesive is Loctite® PL Premium® or LePage® PL Premium®. Carefully read and follow manufacturer’s directions for the adhesive. (For more information on this installation method see Method 2 on the General Installation page). If method 1 fails, use method 2.
