We aim to make installation as simple as possible. All the tips and information is down below and if you need any more help, just get in touch.
Make sure the wall is clean, dry and. A well-prepared wall leads to a great looking finish.
Lay out your panels so you know where each strips will be placed – they are all supplied at 1200mm wide with an overlap to trim on the wall. The overlap is there to help if the surface is not quite even and all the strips will be a little longer than needed.
Apply ready mixed paste to the wall and start with the first section working to a plumb line or vertical straight edge. Smooth it all out gently removing any air bubbles or wrinkles.
Go ahead now and apply the paste for the next panel – same as before, paste only enough for the strip and direct to the wall. Once it’s up on the wall, move it into position so it visually aligns with the previous panel and overlaps slightly.
Using a sharp knife, trim down the middle of both panels, remove the excess wallpaper and repeat for the rest.
Being able to produce at 2.9m wide means that most orders will be sent out as one panel. However, if your space is bigger than this, our floorcovering can either be sent out in panels that have been trimmed by us for you to butt-join together into place or created with a small overlap to help with positioning. This overlap will need trimming away during installation.
Lay out all the panels using the proof we provide ensuring the pattern flows across the strips and everything fits as it should.
Once you’re sure all panels visually match, glue evenly or use vinyl flooring tape to secure in place. Work on a strip at a time making sure it’s all smooth and there are no bumps or bubbles underneath.
After installation, be sure to not to use any abrasive cleaners on your new flooring and being vinyl, don’t drag anything sharp across it and use protectors on any heavy furniture to prevent dents.
Before fitting your new glass splashback please check and ensure that the wall surface is relatively even and free of any large bumps and hollows.
The walls do not have to be perfectly even as a little extra adhesive can be added in hollow areas and less where there may be a slight bump.
Lay the splashback glossy side down on to a towel or a blanket to keep it safe and using a neutral clear solvent-free silicone (also known as mirror adhesive), squeeze out equally sized blobs roughly 20mm or so in diameter and about 100mm apart.
Be careful not to put any blobs too close to the edge as the silicone may squeeze out over the edge of the glass.
Lift in to position and press the glass against the wall applying equal pressure across the panel. If there are any areas that feel uneven or bouncy when pressed, remove the glass and apply a little more adhesive to that section before lifting in place and trying again.
We recommend that once in place, leave for 24 hours.
After waiting, run a bead of silicone all around the edge and with a little spray of warm soapy water run a finger over the silicone to take away the excess and create a nice even seal.
We’ve written a post here about fitting your glass splashback.
Like our splashbacks, the glass tiles can also be fixed to your wall using a neutral clear solvent-free silicone or mirror adhesive.
Ensure the wall is clean and free of any large bumps and hollows. If there are any uneven areas of the wall, a little more silicone can be applied to the tile to level it out.
Place the tiles on a towel or blanket whilst applying adhesive. Tile spacers can be used to keep them in place whilst drying.
Normal grout is to be applied by using a soft squeegee after the glass tiles have fully settled and dried in place and any excess can be cleaned off in the usual way using clean warm water.
