I have been wanting to put a backsplash up behind my kitchen sink for years. However I definitely couldn’t do a real glass tile backsplash by myself and I was pretty sure I couldn’t afford anything that would look decent.
When I discovered affordable kitchen tile stickers I found hope. Maybe I could actually DIY my backsplash!
In this post I’ll walk you through how to install a peel and stick glass tile backplash with super easy kitchen tile stickers. I was able to cover the space behind my sink for less than $50 with these amazing tiles… read on to learn how!
Measure Your Backsplash Space
First you’ll want to measure the space you want to cover with your kitchen tile stickers. You’ll want to measure in inches – how long and how tall.
I wanted to cover some ugly drywall and paint that kept peeling behind my sink.
Finding The Right Kitchen Tile Stickers
These particular tiles are 10.2 inches by 9.1 inches. You can use these measurements to determine how many tiles you need to order for the space you measured.
I suggest ordering an extra tile just in case you mess up with one (I did have to throw one away).
Preparing To Use Peel And Stick Glass Tile
You will need to remove any peeling paint and dust from the surface to which you want to apply the tiles. I had to pull some peeling paint off and wipe down the surface with a cloth.
There were a few grease spots I needed to clean as well with a standard household cleaner.
Applying Kitchen Tile Stickers
Okay the BEST part about these particular kitchen tile stickers is this:
You can use scissors to cut them to the right size.
Yep, you don’t even need to use a box cutter as they suggest on the packaging – a sharp pair of heavy scissors will work just fine.
Measure how much you will have to cut off of the tiles and cut away.
When applying the tiles, I found it helpful to peel a bit away from the top first and line the tile up. Then I’d press the tile on and pull the rest of the backing off. This made it much easier to work with!
The tiles are made to overlap and you can fit them together easily. One tile goes right on top of the other without any issue.
Finished Peel And Stick Glass Tile Backsplash
Here is my completed peel and stick glass tile backsplash. It took me about an hour total to complete this DIY kitchen project with no tools except a pair of scissors.
I’ve already had lots of compliments on my backsplash. What do you think? Would you try to DIY a backsplash with kitchen tile stickers?
