When the need arises to protect your walls, the first product you think about is decorative tiles. These can give your kitchen or bathroom a special look, and at the same time, protect your bathroom and kitchen walls from the constant humidity and heat they are constantly subjected to. They can also be used to cover laundry rooms as well – basically anywhere a backsplash may be required.
Art3d 10-Sheet Peel And Stick Backsplash Tiles
Art3d produces some of the best tiles on the market. This one is made up of 10 sheets of tiles, and each sheet measure 12″ X 12″ in size. This is much more preferable, compared to 10″ X 10″ tiles, because they cover more area, which means more value for your money. The tiles are made of hard plastic, and they can be easily installed by peeling the tiles off and sticking them to your walls. You can even trim them to fit spaces on your walls. They also stick to any type of wall, whether it’s a smooth wall or an already tiled wall.
Since these are “peel and stick” tiles, you won’t be able to install them on walls with rough surfaces, such as walls with textured wallpaper, porous wood walls, etc. because they won’t stick properly to such surfaces. Walls painted with latex paint may need a 3M spray adhesive sprayed on them to help these tiles stick. Removing the tiles is almost as easy as installing them. You simply need to use a hair dryer to soften the adhesive and then peel off the tiles carefully.
Art3d’s tiles have an embossed textures design, and there are five different types to choose from with different colors and designs. The tiles are resistant to humidity and heat, but that doesn’t mean they are indestructible. You’ll need to make sure they are not installed too close to any source of flame or steam. Art3d recommends a distance of at least 16 inches.
These tiles are so easy to clean. Just wipe them with a clean cloth and you’re done. They are so durable that they look like new even after months of usage. They also don’t peel off like some low quality tiles would. The installation process requires just regular household items – a measuring tape and a pair of scissors. If you make any errors while installing one of the sheets, you can peel it off and reinstall with no trouble at all.
Art3d’s tiles look amazing, and it’s hard to tell the difference between these and regular ceramic tiles if you aren’t the one who bought and installed them. They are perfect for bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, and laundry room walls. If you’re new to installing these types of tiles, you’ll be happy to learn that Art3d provides an easy to follow video installation guide to walk you through the process.
Tic Tac Tiles 10-Sheet 3D Peel And Stick Wall Tiles
This is a high quality set of tiles that resemble real tiles, with a 3D texture that makes them stand out in any home. Just like Art3d’s tiles, this one is also a 12″ X 12″ set of tile sheets, and there are 10 of them in each set. If you have smaller requirements, Tic Tac Tiles also offers a smaller version of these tiles that contains just 5 sheets. The color of these tiles is mono white, and it uses an adhesive that is two times stronger than the other color variants.
The other colors you can choose from are black, grey, mint, and pure white, but these use weaker adhesives that are still more than enough to keep them glued to your walls for as long as they last. So, if you prefer any of the other colors, don’t worry about the adhesives. If you really need that extra sticking power, you can easily buy a separate adhesive or glue and apply it to the tiles during installation.
Installation is easy and quick. You just need to clean your wall, trace the guidelines on your wall, peel off the tiles, and stick them to the wall. It’s important that you clean the surface of your walls properly before installation as the cleaner the surface, the better the tiles adhere to your wall. You don’t need to worry about filling grout lines, and you don’t need to purchase an adhesive to install them. Tic Tac Tiles have also created an installation video to make the process easier. It goes without saying that these won’t work on walls with rough surfaces, so bear that in mind before buying a peel and stick product.
These decorative tiles are one of the best options available if you’re looking to renovate your home, RV, or mobile home. They are also ideal for making small spaces pop (such as fireplaces), to brighten up laundry rooms, and for kitchen/bathroom backsplash and decorations. These tiles won’t peel off by themselves after installation, and they maintain their original color for as long as you use them. They are also designed to withstand exposure to humidity, heat, and water. The material used in producing these tiles does not allow mold or bacteria growth, so you won’t ever have to worry about those.
The grout on the tiles have different colors, depending on the color you choose while placing your order. The mono white variant I’m reviewing here has gray grout lines. The tiles are removable, so they are perfect for rented apartments. They are also perfect for rented apartments because they are thick enough to hide any existing blemishes on the walls. The tiles are smooth and easy to clean too.
If you’ve never installed high quality peel and stick tiles like this one, you may begin to prefer these over ceramic tiles once you do. I mean, who needs ceramic tiles with all the hassles involved in installing them when you can have these easy-to-install tiles? If you have walls you wish to protect, polish, or decorate with tiles, this Tic Tac Tiles product should be in the list of products you’re considering buying.
How About Ceramic Tiles?
The two decorative tiles featured above are all non-ceramic tiles that you can install yourself. But if you’re looking for ceramic tiles, I’d recommend the Color Y Tradicion Mexican Tiles. There are 100 beautiful tiles in the set with vibrant colors that you’ll love. There are also more than 30 different colonial patterns on the tiles, and each tile measures 4 inches on all sides. The tiles are handmade, so expect a little variation in size. However, these are perfect for virtually any purpose. Color Y Tradicion manufactures these tiles and packages them properly to protect them from breaking. However, you may still find 1 to 3 broken tiles in your package. But these do come with extra though, so that won’t be an issue if it happens to be the case. Click here to check it out.
