DIY Peel and Stick Backsplash Tile

When we first looked at our house, I knew that the kitchen needed a full renovation and that I couldn’t afford to do it. But I also didn’t want to live with a kitchen I hated for a few years while I save up to rip everything out. So I’ve decided to do budget updates with no huge changes besides paint.

I started by painting the , next I even attempted to to redo , then . I installed , and and

Well this week I have some fun updates for you- I’ve added peel and stick backsplash tile!

Let’s start with the video tutorial so you get an overview on what I did. Then, I’ll dive in with more details below:

The prep was super easy! Just clean your back splash area with hot water and soap. Remove all outlet covers.

DIY Peel and Stick Backsplash Tile

I put the peel and stick tile right over the old backsplash and it worked like a charm! When I use it over drywall, I’ll report back on how that goes!

First off, you want to decide where to start. My back splash area was perfectly sized for 2 sets of from top to bottom . So I started at the top. Take the backing off your sticker and put your sticker where you want it. The backing is nice and sticky so it should adhere easily.

This particular brand has white areas to overlay other tiles. At first I cut this off, but later decided it worked better and was faster to leave it on.

Continue with the full size tiles as far as you can.

Next, you need to cut around outlets. Just use scissors- they cut super easily! The bottom of my tile sheet matched up with the bottom of the outlet, so it was pretty simple to snip out the excess tiles where needed to go around the outlets.

To finish up, you’ll want to cut in tiles for along the edges. I had to cut tiles in half to fill in the tip and bottom and the edges off for the side. I just counted how many I needed and did it while watching TV to make it less tedious. Then it was just peeling off the back and carefully placing the cut tiles where needed.

Each pack comes with 4 10″x10″ sheets. I ordered 14 packs for my big kitchen. The total was $364. Because of the time saved without having to rip out the old backsplash, fix the drywall, buy and install new tile, and grout, I think it was still WAY more affordable than a new tile backsplash.

It was maybe a little boring, but definitely not hard! They easily cut with scissors.

The package doesn’t recommend it. BUT shop around, there are lots of renter friendly options .

The finish is smooth- like a big sticker. It is wipeable with soap and water.

how long will these last? Are they durable?

I’m not sure! I’ll keep this post updated. I’ve looked at this product on lots of sights and read lots of reviews and haven’t seen comments on how long it’ll last. I’m hoping to do a full kitchen renovation in 1-2 years so hopefully it’ll last that long! It is super sticky so I am confident it will.

*update- I’ve had the tile up for 4 months and it’s done REALLY well. I haven’t had any pieces come off. If it gets dirty, I wipe it clean. I 100% recommend this product!

how difficult was the back splash to install?

It was super simple! I put that whole section up in about an hour. It was really satisfying to do too!

DIY Peel and Stick Backsplash Tile

can you use this over tile that is not completely flat?

A portion of my tile isn’t flat- and it worked just fine! Of course, it just went up so I’ll keep you posted if anything changes.

I didn’t do anything for the edges. The tiles just go to the edge and look nice that way. When you cut them, they have a white edge. I don’t think you need to do anything for the edges- but you could if you want.

For the right person- yes! If you want a backsplash that’ll last you forever and forever, then I’d just go with real tile. However, if you want something trendy for a few years- do it! If you’re saving up for a renovation and want a solution in the meantime- do it!

I wanted to share a few more options of peel and stick backsplash tile in case you want to try this project out too!

When you said it’s not ideal for renters, what do you mean? Do you think it’s okay for someone who is potentially renting out the house in a few years?

DIY Peel and Stick Backsplash Tile

Hi Devin- sorry I wasn’t clear on that! It would be great for someone potentially renting out a house! The package says” “We recommend this product be considered a more permanent application. However, they may be removed from most surfaces carefully, without damaging walls. If desired, test in an inconspicuous location before starting the entire application.” I’m guessing they might pull of painted surfaces when removed. Which means the adhesive is strong which is a great thing in lots of uses.

Hi Devin! Ashley is spot on with her recommendations. We designed the backsplash to be able to hold up to kitchen traffic, so the adhesive is stronger than your typical peel and stick decal . I will say that I have them in my own rental apartment, but my walls are slightly textured so they’re able to be peeled off with no issue- and I have a bucket of paint at the ready. If they were stuck to a completely flat wall, it’s likely they could pull off some paint when removing them due to the nature of the adhesive. I hope this helps!
