How can I use peel and stick tiles on my counter top?

My counter top is awful and I am having a hard time finding what I can afford to make it better. I wondered if peel and stick floor tiles would work. I know I won't be able to put anything hot on them, but I don't do that now anyway.

    Try RUSTOLEUM kit to redo countertops would be better than trying the tiles

    You could use peel and stick tiles but it would be time consuming trying to cut it to look nice and fit on the ends. Then, it would have to be grouted as an additional step. Have you thought about painting them? We updated our countertops.....We used primer spray paint to prep... then spray paint with a stone spray.... then use ENVIROTEX!!! It's like a bar top epoxy resin. It's fine for food to be on. You would mix it up, pour it on and use a blow torch to remove bubbles. You might want to make a frame for the sides of the countertop because the edges are tricky to get a smooth finish. Or maybe cover the edges with contact paper and then do the edges by hand. But whatever you do, cover the lower cabinets with plastic because when it gets poured, it will drip down off the sides. Follow the directions on the box and you will love the result. For a few years after we did it, people thought it was granite. Good Luck!

    My friend used contact paper to cover her old counter tops, til they were ready to replace. Used it for years, easy and affordable to replace again, if needed.

    i have used contact paper and also press and peel tile. you do not have to grout! tile is on my countertops about 2 1/2 yrs and still fine. i cut the with an exacto knife, worked well. very resonable, you can buy them as many as you need. good luck!
