Good morning Meghan,

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

Fasade decorative thermoplastic panels and Aspect tiles are a great choice to update your backsplash and are very simple to do. In the screenshot and link below, this will be an easy one-day project, no matter if you choose the panels or the tile.

Aspect Metal Backsplash Tiles

 

And yes, you can place Fasade panels and Aspect  tiles over an existing ceramic tile surface!

 

According to Fasades website under the FAQ section:

 

"The wall to which you plan to install backsplash panels to needs to be freshly cleaned, free from dust, grease, wax, etc. After you’ve cleaned the wall, be sure that it is dried thoroughly. Acceptable substrates are drywall, plaster or clean, smooth tile (glazed, porcelain type tile; not porous or textured), concrete, smooth stucco, wood paneling, mirror, glass, metal, etc."

 


and according to the Aspect metal tiles installation guide:

 

"Aspect can be installed over most structurally sound substrates if they are clean, flat, smooth, dry, and free of dust, wax, soap scum and grease. Acceptable substrates are drywall, plaster or clean, smooth tile (glazed, porcelain type tile; not porous or textured)." 

 

 

Therefore as long as you have a sealed and clean surface, Fasade panels and Aspect tiles will be able to go on top of your existing backsplash. Of course, the adhesive you use on them will determine how well they will hold up. 

 

Another way to fasten it to the wall is by using Loctite Construction Adhesive by PL Premium. Use this option if you'd like to permanently adhere it to the surface. More information can be found on our project guide video regarding Fasade panels.

 

Lastly, consider using decorative edge pieces like J-Trim, outlet covers and inside corner trims to finalize the look of your panels. For tile, you can use these pieces, but you can also use wood trims and moulding to finish the appearance of the installation, the choice is up to you.

 

I hope this has assisted you and please let us know if you have any further questions.
