When you’re cooking a lot like I do you look in your kitchen – may it be small or bigger – at the same surface for a long time. This surface is not just the countertop that I clean constantly but also the wall behind the oven and behind the sink. You might not notice it but this look has a strong impact on the way you feel in your kitchen.
You will however recognize it when one day you change the look of this back wall dramatically. And with dramatically I mean with adhesive backsplash tiles that come in so many looks that it’s almost overwhelming. We did it in our tiny kitchen and the effect was indeed sweeping. What looked before like a boring kinda old kitchen shines now in new glory.
It’s just incredible how much effect you can create by just installing new backsplash tiles to your kitchen walls. The advantage of adhesive backsplash tiles is that you can install them directly on existing panels and any smooth surfaces such as ceramic, glass, acrylic, melamine, aluminum and even stainless steel. If the surface is too rough like porous wood or embossed ceramic tiles these adhesive backsplash tiles are not suitable.
Most of the available adhesive backsplash tiles are meant for kitchen and bathrooms. Because they are not just humidity-resistant but also heat-resistant you can even install them behind your oven. Well, said that, most backsplash tile manufacturers recommend to install their tiles behind ovens when there is a certain distance between the burners and the wall. Many recommend 16 inches of distance between flames and tiles.
The same caution they recommend when installing backsplash tiles in bathrooms. It’s most often not recommended to be used in showers.
These backsplash tiles are very easy to install. They call it peel and stick installation. You peel off the backing stickers and stick then the tiles onto the smooth surface of your choice. For this action you don’t need any tools. If you however need to cut the tiles – which can easily happen between the tile patterns – to fit it let’s say around a bathroom mirror or sink faucet you can easily do that with an utility knife or even scissors. I almost recommended the Swiss Army Knife, but that’s another story.
These adhesive backsplash tiles are not meant to be removed and reused. If you want to remove them you will need to destroy the tiles and then clean the wall underneath it. The best way though to remove backsplash tiles is to use a hair dryer to warm up the adhesive and then you can start pulling the tiles off.
Again, it’s incredible how much glamor and elegance you can bring into your kitchen or bathroom with backsplash tiles. The effect is always dramatic and I can promise you that you will feel like cooking in a totally new kitchen – for quite a while.
A word to the size needed for your purpose. It’s important to take careful measurements of the wall space you want to cover with the backsplash tiles and then take a close look at the sizes the different brands offer. This might differ from brand to brand. If you just want to kinda renovate your RV kitchen you might be totally happy with smaller sized backsplash tiles.

I finished the project today and it was easy and looks great. This project took less than an hour and I am very pleased. The tile doesn’t feel cheap and looks like a professionally installed backsplash. I had to make a few cuts for the outlet and a border and I used regular scissors and it was a breeze.
Love these tiles. Quality is great. Used them to frame around a bathroom mirror. Easy to cut between pattern of tile.

I love, love, love my backsplash. It was super easy and VERY sticky. It added so much flare to my all white and silver kitchen. It’s perfect.
Absolutely love it! It is sparkly just as I like it. It looks like diamonds on the wall. I used it as an accent tile. I also used it as a backsplash on top of my old stainless steel stove backsplash. It looks luxrious. It makes my kitchen look new and bigger, very attractive.
