There are various tile stickers available in the market, especially the black peel and stick tiles which offer you an opportunity to decorate your kitchen or any other room of your house with these low-cost beautifying crafts with the exactness of concrete backsplash tile or marble.
Furthermore, they are ready to use within minutes and they look very attractive in every way. You can get as creative as you want with them and choose them as per your taste and desire.
A few tools you’ll need for this project are: an electric saw, utility knife, scissors, pencil, level, dust mask, tin snips or shears. You’ll also need an adhesive that will be compatible with the type of surface you’re working on. It’s best to use a low-strength adhesive for materials like drywall and high-strength adhesive for surfaces like concrete or marble. For the latter surfaces, you can also make your own adhesive by mixing one part white glue and one part water together in a container.
The first step in installing peel stick backsplashes is to measure your space at the height you want it installed at. This can be anywhere from six inches up to eight feet high depending on what look you’re going for. Once measured, cut out the shape of your space using a razor blade and remove all tile above it. Use some rough sandpaper to rough up any remaining seams so they don’t show through when tiling over them.
Apply adhesive onto the back of your tiles and place them into position over where you removed the tile previously. Press firmly so they adhere well and then use spacers around all edges if desired to keep them even with each other. When finished, grout as normal by mixing liquid grout mix in equal parts water and allow it time to set before wiping off excess grout using a damp cloth
Step by Step Instructions
- peel off the backing paper from the back of the tile.
- place it on your wall or countertop in desired location and press down on it.
- remove any extra air bubbles by gently pressing them out from behind the tile with your fingers.
- use an object like a credit card or something similar, run it along each side of the tile for about 20 times, this will ensure that you have removed all of the air bubbles.
- leave them up for at least 24 hours before using anything hot like an oven or stove top.
- if you ever want to remove them, simply pull up at one corner and they should come off relatively easily.
- enjoy your new backsplash! You now have a gorgeous DIY project complete without too much effort.
- Remember: when applying tiles to an uneven surface, make sure that they are sticking into the valleys between the surface’s peaks and valleys.
- Use sharp scissors or a razor blade to trim off excess tile after installation is complete.
- It is highly recommended that you apply sealant around edges of tiles as well as anywhere else water may get trapped when applied around dishwasher or sink area, but this step is not mandatory unless areas are unusually damp
