When we moved in there was a 4 inch tall backsplash that needed to be removed.
Peel and Stick Tile Backsplash
Updating or adding backsplash can be as simple as peel and stick. No thin set, no grouting, but all the style.
We scored the caulk at the top of the small backsplash and where it touched the counter. Then we used a pry bar to removed the backsplash, but tried not to damage the wall.
After the small backsplash was removed and the area cleaned, we sanded and patched any areas that were uneven. Then starting at one corner, we added the tile.
The tile comes 8 to a pack. You peel off the paper backing and using a level we place the tiles.
For the cuts we used a wet saw and when we started on the next row, we cut the tile in half to stagger the tiles.
Having a good tile cutter with the proper blade is all you need. To see the full tutorial, be sure to check out the blog post:
I loved not having to mess with thin set or grout. Most importantly I love how it turned out.
