No Mess, No Fuss Smart Tile Backsplash

I am beyond thrilled to be sharing this project with you today! I recently stumbled upon an amazing product called Smart Tiles. Have you heard of them? They are actually a peel-and-stick gel tile that looks exactly like real tile.

You can find the full DIY tutorial HERE.
I was skeptical at first, but once I saw the tile in person I was convinced to give it a try. The gel type material gives the tile a 3D appearance that mimics the look of real tile. They come in sheets and are super easy to install. I especially loved the idea of not having to rent a wet saw or deal with messy adhesive or grout. All you need is a cutting mat, level, laser level and utility knife.
The tiles are super easy to cut and went up pretty quick with only minimal cuts around the outlets and window. I wasn't too concerned about the corners since I planned on caulking them for a clean look.
In just one afternoon I was able to completely update my kitchen while my husband was at work and my kids were at school. Now that's my kind of DIY project!

    Are these tiles removable? Could I put them up in my dark apartment kitchen and remove them when I leave? Thanks! Your kitchen looks amazing!

    Can this be installed directly over ceramic tile backsplash?

    Back splashes are exposed to the grease and grime from cooking etc. My question: Does this hold up to cleaning? (water based or chemical based cleaners)
