We have made installing Sola Felt as easy as possible. You can install most of the designs on our site in under an hour, and none should take you more than a couple of hours.
Before you begin, measure the space on your wall and layout your tiles on a clean floor or table to make sure you have the right design in mind. Then wipe away any dust or debris on the wall, don’t use soap as it may leave a residue that will interfere with the adhesive.
We recommend leveling the line of your first tile. Usually starting at the center and working outward. Most smartphones have a level built and will suffice. Marking the top edge with a light pencil will help guide you along the way.
Peel off the backing to one side of the easy-stick tabs. Press them firmly into the back of the sola tile. Rub (or burnish) the tab with a smooth firm object, like a credit card, or the end of a Sharpie marker. Then peel off the "wall side" backer.
Align the top edge of the tile to your leveled line. This makes it easier to lower the tile exactly where you want it without having to reapply it.
Press and apply firmly
Pin and enjoy. You may want to vacuum your felt tiles about once a year. If something wet gets on the tile dab it clean with a dry or damp cloth.
Sola felt tiles cut fairly easily with a sharp craft knife to make custom shapes. The chamfered channels make especially good guidelines, and the felt tiles cut better using the existing pattern than making your own shapes. If you decide to cut your sola felt tiles, we recommend using a sharp straight blade and a metal straight edge to help guide. Place the tile on a blade-safe surface and cut with smooth firm pressure.
Easy To Un-Install
Sola tile peel-and-stick tabs are designed to preserve your walls. To remove your sola tile, gently, but firmly pull one side of the tile off with a peeling motion. The adhesive should break away from the felt tile first, leaving the adhesive on the wall.
Then slowly roll the remaining adhesive off of the wall one tab at a time. We have provided a few extra tabs in every box, so you can restock and reuse the tile with new tabs.
