They do not require mortar or grout, which is certainly good news; instead, they have an industrial-grade adhesive, which secures them so they will not slide, move or fall.
Prepping your wall is an important step in the peel and stick process, as you want a clean, smooth and dry surface for optimal hold. Removing outlet covers prior to installation is crucial, as well. Upon removing the protective backing, you simply spray soapy water onto the adhesive, where you’ll have several seconds to adjust it prior to the hold securing. Many people draw lines at the bottom of their wall so they know where their rows will go.
This process is empowering and exciting in its own right, but what about some top tier backsplash designs? Let’s delve into a few to get your decorative juices flowing—hopefully, you’ll find some inspiration and the right peel and stick backsplash that works for you!
