5 Benefits of Using Peel and Stick Tile #DIYProject

Recently, I completed another DIY project and decided to use peel and stick tile for a kitchen backsplash. The option seemed more budget-friendly and the flexibility of using peel and stick tile was on my list of reasons. I went to my local hardware store and came across Smart Tiles. This product has a Gel-O technology which the company explains does not turn yellow or crack over time. After researching other competitor products I decided to purchase some from Smart Tiles. However, this peel and stick tile cannot be used on textured walls and I have orange peel walls so I found a product called Mussel Bound to put down on my kitchen wall first, which acted as a barrier and smooth surface for me. Initially, I was going to sand the walls but decided I would rather find another workaround to avoid the sand dust going everywhere. In the end, the Mussel Bound worked for me and I completed this peel and stick install in two days. It looks great and I'm so happy with the final result. Mussel Bound is used for traditional tile applications and is a much cleaner option. If you're looking to apply traditional tile, Mussel Bound would be a good option because it acts as a double-sided tape and it sticks well, not going anywhere. It is made to last for a long time. In the video below, I show how I applied the peel and stick tile for a kitchen backsplash, purchased from Smart Tiles.

If you're trying to decide between using peel and stick tile or traditional tile, here are five benefits of using peel and stick tile.

Ease of Installation: Peel and stick tiles are designed for easy installation, requiring no specialized tools or skills. You simply peel off the backing and stick them onto a clean, flat surface. This makes them an ideal option for quick updates or temporary solutions. Cost-Effective: Compared to traditional tiles, peel and stick tiles are often more affordable. They eliminate the need for grout, adhesive, and professional installation costs, saving you both time and money. Versatility: Peel and stick tiles come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and styles, allowing you to achieve various looks to suit your aesthetic preferences. Whether you're looking for a modern, classic, or eclectic design, there's likely a peel and stick option to match. Removability: One of the key advantages of peel and stick tiles is their ability to be easily removed without damaging the underlying surface. This makes them an excellent choice for renters or homeowners who want to update their space without making permanent changes. Low Maintenance: Once installed, peel and stick tiles require minimal maintenance. They are generally water-resistant and easy to clean, making them suitable for use in kitchens, bathrooms, and other high-moisture areas. Overall, peel and stick tiles offer a convenient and budget-friendly solution for adding style and functionality to your home.
