Hello Mags! Thank you for your question! Yes, you can install the decorative backsplash panels to your ceiling application. The wall or ceiling 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.
Any damaged, loose or uneven areas must be repaired, patched, leveled and primed. Fill cracks and irregularities with wallboard compound or spackling, then sand smooth with fine-grade sandpaper. Any porous material like highly textured drywall, plywood (or any raw wood without primer), and wallpaper unless removed, sanded and primed, will result in adhesive failure. You will want to make certain that you read the ceiling panel installation guide online at www.fasadeideas.com to see the difference in the overlap feature so you can install your panels while minimizing the seam. Please feel free to contact customer care for additional installation troubleshooting (800.434.3750).
