In her kitchen, my client Odessa wanted a ‘splash’ of some visual interest (aka: make it not boring!). She suggested painting it, which we could do, but I had something even cooler in mind. A gorgeous mosaic backsplash! Oh, but did I mention that there would be no messy troweling or grouting involved. How? We ditched the expensive and long process of using real tiles and instead grabbed scissors to install gorgeous mosaic peel and stick backsplash tiles. Check out the (3) steps you need for this installation, (3) stores where you can buy peel and stick backsplash tiles, and many more photos ……

All you need for the peek and stick backsplash installation  are SCISSORS! Seriously, that’s it! When installing real tiles it involves a 9 step process, which I review here. The cost differences is also HUGE. Mega HUGE!

3 STEP INSTALLATION 

The installation is very difficult (NOT!) It really is very simple. The back splash tiles come in sheets (about 12″x14″) and all you have to do it after you stop drooling over the gorgeous economical design:

  1. measure your wall(s) to determine quantity
  2. peel the back of the tile sheet
  3. stick each sheet to the wall, cutting/trimming with scissors where needed (like around outlets, stove, or at the end/top/bottom of the walls)
