Material and Tools Needed for Faux Leather Tiles Install
Miter or a Table Saw - If you are installing full panels only please dis-regard this option as you will not need to use the saw. If however you need to filling a whole wall and have to cut a power saw is a must.
Work Space & Material - Prepare your workspace and material to make it easy on yourself. It would be ideal to have a work-bench where you can keep your tools, apply adhesive to your tiles etc. but that is not always possible.. So do your best to create comfortable space to work. Also, be sure to clean your wall or ceiling from any dust, dirt, oil or anything else that could prevent proper adhesion.
Starting Point - Your starting point may be in the center of your wall or ceiling but it also may be in the corner, it is important to find a great starting point and this can depend on project you are working on, your or your customers preference, what will look the best. If you working on an enclosed area, center is a good way to start but if you are working on an area that has an open side such as outside corner on a wall, starting there may be the best as you can start with a full tile and avoid leaving exposed edge which you would have to finish..

Apply Adhesive - Power Grab and Hot Glue work great! Be sure to apply enough glue trough out the tile to assure proper bond. In the video above you can see in detail how it is done. Rule of thumb is that going arround the edges creating a frame and then making an "X" connecting corners should be plenty.
Installing Your 1st Tile - Make sure to install your tile exactly on your starting point and be certain it is level. Failure to do this may cause troubles installing your tiles correctly for the entire project. Once you are sure you have place the tile in the right position, press it firmly.
