    There are terrific peel and stick backsplash tiles that look like glass tiles.

    Here is our peel and stick that we are planning to install over an ugly existing tile backsplash in our kitchen. Very economical and easy. No grouting either!

    I installed VERY inexpensive subway tiles from Home Depot. So very easy. I didn't leave any gap in between the tiles and have not grouted these at all and they still are amazing after a year's worth of use.

      Hi, This is a fantastic idea. I did not know you could literally butt the tiles up together. I have always been told you have to leave a certain gap between them. Are your tiles a certain tile for this please. Thank you

    I love the glass tile and am thinking about doing those myself .

    Hi Sandy. Nope, they are standard subway tiles. I did a lot of research since everything in my experience told me "no no no, you must grout", but I started seeing more and more that I didn't actually have to. I figured if the seams started getting, for lack of a better word, yucky, then I could still grout them. This might be against all the "rules" but it's worked very well for me. I cook quite a bit, too, and again, no problems behind my stove, etc.
