10 DIY Peel-And-Stick Tiles To Quickly Take Your Backsplash From Meh To Magnificent

Adding a flashy backsplash is one of the best ways to help transform your kitchen, and, especially, to take the emphasis off of countertops that might need updating or cabinets in need of an overhaul. It could also inspire you to make those other needed changes. But the hassle of working with tile and stone and dealing with messy thinset and grout – or paying someone to do it for you – often wins out over going for it.

But there’s another solution to slopping adhesive on the wall. Peel-and-stick tiles! Yes, you actually peel off the backing and stick them to your wall, or even to existing tile. And they stay there, until you want to peel them off and put something else up. If you can place a sticker, you can tile your kitchen.

“Removable, peel-and-stick subway tile. The kind you can install over your existing tile in an afternoon, without any special tools or tricks,” said Apartment Therapy. It sounds like the stuff legends are made of, doesn’t it? But it’s real.”

Now, peel-and-stick tiles aren’t entirely new. We’ve written about them before, but with so many great shapes, sizes, colors, and textures being offered now, there’s no excuse for not having a beautiful backsplash, no matter your style.
