Has anyone tried Fasade or other Faux tin ceiling tiles?

I'm thinking about getting some of these Fasade ceiling tiles for the carpet strip in our Burro. They are 24" wide, which would just span the gap (it's 23" wide) and I think leave enough on either side to attach the ceiling tiles to the smooth fiberglass (not the rough stuff inside the carpet strip). I'm also thinking I could use some as an easy backsplash. Just wondering if anyone else has used them and what their experience has been?

Fasade Traditional 2 White 2 ft. x 4 ft. Glue-Up Ceiling Tile-G51-00 at The Home Depot

Oh, I meant to add that I saw some at Home Depot earlier today, and they are made of some kind of plastic, so I think they should be flexible enough that they go around the curves of the trailer. Is anyone able to confirm or deny that?

Mary I saw those also at Home Depot and was thinking of using one for a backsplash. Decided against it when I saw the price. But If you are willing to go there $ I think it would be beautiful. If the glue strip is not good enough you can use another type of adhesive. I have had good luck with Bathroom tub and tile adhesive. It's put into a caulk gun. Good Luck.

I agree, they are a little pricey. I did find some similar ones online for about half the price, but even at that price, I was hoping that someone had tried it first, just so I know it isn't a waste of money, lol!

I put up the Fasade backsplash in mine. Double sided tape didn't work well on the ensolite. I ended up using loctite powergrab. I'm pretty sure the only way it's coming off now is by cutting a large hole in the side of the camper.

I think it would look great! Yes they're a bit spendy. But, this is a one and done.. will never wear out. AND, if you get tired of the color, Fusion paint to the rescue. Added bonus is they're washable and won't hold any odor unlike carpet or fabric.

Mary, I put the same ones you have in your pic on my ceiling in my bathroom when I remodeled my house. I used Liquid Nails to hold it on the ceiling and then my "power arm strength" - haha - to hold it up long enough for each tile to stay put.

They wash easily and maintain their bright white color - made of polystyrene - bendable to a point but I don't know if they would go around corners well.

I got mine at Menard's but Lowe's and Home Depot have them too. We have the copper colored ones on the wall for backsplash in the cafeteria at work and they look great there as well.

Good luck and I'll be looking forward to seeing your finished project before I tackle mine.

Jared, I like that look as well...the retro microwave - priceless!

The tiles will look cool. You might have to make little 1/2" clips along the side edges to accommodate the curves where the ceiling meets the walls. I'd use VHB foam type tape to mount them.

You probably already thought of this, but it's worth mentioning. Now is your chance to insulate between the tiles and the ceiling. Also, check down between the outer and inner shells to see if you find insulation. My ceiling insulation has sagged over time. Kind of like me.

I wonder if you can heat one of these enough to facilitate the bend? Like with a heat gun... not a hair dryer which I don't think would get hot enough. At least I hope it wouldn't... they're made for heads and hair... not plastic!

The shiny ones delaminated when bent to far.

Was that with or without heating? Inquiring minds want to know...

Without, don't think it would matter. It's basically plated, and the plastic will far outflex the plating.
