Well, it’s been a year since we’ve installed our Smart Tiles back splash and wanted to give an update. When Sandie came home with “Tile Stickers” I must say I was more than a little hesitant. My initial reaction went something like “There’s no way I’m putting these fake a** tiles on the wall”, but after reading up on them I decided to give them a shot. At about $10/sheet I was also put off by the price, but considering there’s no need for thin set, grout, floats, sponges and a messy cleanup they all of a sudden start to look like a great value. Plus they won’t chunk off the wall while we’re bouncing the trailer down the road. Checkout the below video to see our Smart Tiles update and watch us install them in the bath.
Now having them installed for a year I must say that I’m a believer. If you know us, we’re not exactly easy on anything we own and these Smart Tiles are holding up wonderfully so far. There’s absolutely no signs of wear and the adhesive (which I wasn’t all that confident in) shows no signs of quitting. I must say I’d recommend these tiles to anyone looking to improve the looks of their RV without breaking the bank or sweating too much.
Since I installed the original back splash I’ve been squirreling away some scraps to add to the bathroom at some point. Around the bathroom counter we have some shoddy plastic trim that’s cracked and broken and I’ve wanted to do something to make it look nicer for a while. Now that our back splash has made it a year I guess it’s about time to do the bathroom and finally throw the rest of my scraps away.
