I want to use allure for kitchen backsplash. What is the best glue to use to secure it to plaster/mud? --173.90.xx.xxx

Are you thinking of using the glue strip or the interlocking Allure? Also will you be running it horizontally or vertically? If I was going to try using it for a backsplash I'd be inclined to do the following;

1. lightly sand & thoroughly clean the wall

2. run the pieces vertically to avoid butt joints

3. use 1/8" - 1/4" spacer between the tile & the counter top

4. use ceramic wall tile mastic to secure the tile to the wall

5. use small scotia, cove or quarter round moulding to hide the joint where they butt against the bottom of the upper wall cabinets

6. remove the spacers & caulk this area with a good flexible caulking

After you install a piece or two you should check to see how well the mastic is holding. It's possible that you might have to back butter the Allure as you install it.

I like the idea, and think it would look good in the right house.

Allure is kind of thick & heavy - I've thought of doing it with a lighter product.

I don't have a better idea than what Steve suggested.

I am VERY interested to learn how it turned out! PLEASE come back and let us know. --70.160.xxx.xxx

In one of my units, the former owner used the 12x12 linoleum stick on tiles that are for floors. It was good until they started peeling off. Also keep in mind that it wouldn't be to code if it it's above a stove because it would be combustible. If you go to the effort to put mastic, may as well put tile instead. --66.30.xx.xx

DonV,

I like your idea.

I would be concerned the adhesive would not adhere to the back of glue strip Allure over time.

Hmmm... maybe nail thru the glue strip then cover the nail with the next piece?

Or hang vertically with a nail at the top and a piece of trim to cover the nails?

Consider the stiffer click lock vinyl if you are looking for wash ability.

If you are selling, Momma picks the house and Momma will touch and feel a GLASS backsplash, not the tile but the GLASS. Allure on the wall might be a put off.

Why allure? You can buy fake tile that looks completely real and would be the same amount of work. --70.44.xxx.xx

I have used contact cement and it has held well.....although, the vinyl tile was the self adhesive peel and stick variety. --67.43.xxx.xxx

If you run it vertically, you could attach a chair rail across it midway, secured to studs, that should help secure it.

I would use Liquid Nail to stick it. Often thought about how to use up extra left over flooring in creative ways. Hope you are successful and post pictures --99.203.xxx.xxx

People generally know what belongs on the floor and what belongs on the wall. It would be like using a toilet for a coffee table. I like to make my properties MORE valuable not less. --71.104.xx.xxx

Why not just use a paneling? Iíve used the bead board paneling painted high gloss white and it looks really good.

Brad 20K - glass tile is too busy and is moving out of favor style wise. You need to find a nice ceramic tile to still be on trend. --64.222.xxx.xxx

I had some leftover fiberglass? floor sections similar to lifeproof - no padding, setup for seams facing down and glue the panels up with glass mirror adhesive, 2 jobs look good, sold a flip like this 2nd day cash, appraisal liked it same as buyers. --76.188.xxx.xxx
