Tiling a backsplash
 
Hi,

I'm planning a future remodel in my kitchen backsplash and I saw this product on TV last week: How to Install a Backsplash in a Box : How-To : DIY Network

It seems to be pretty nice, the glass tile is real and peel&stick. So I want to hear from you, guys, what do you think about it? Does anyone have any experience with this product? :)

I haven't myself used little tiles like that but if it looks as nice as it does on the website I might consider it on my own kitchen I wish every tile was that simple to install lol

I also have never tryed it.
Here's the deal I've never seen a peel and stick anything that allowed you to move it once it hits, which would be a real challange when applying to a back splash.
Over time peel and stick can come loose.
Give it a try and get back to us and let us know how it works.

I'm skeptical...looks good now, what about 3 yrs from now?

My guess would be cracked grout on tile sheets that aren't sticking like they used to.

I wouldn't use the grout they give you that looks really shady lol "polyblend"

Have a look at this website Glass Splashbacks - Kitchen glass splashbacks - DG Splashback they are a uk based company but the product should be available worldwide and it looks fantastic

Yeah, pre-mixed grout in a bag gives me the willies...lol.

About five years ago I helped a friend with a back splash. He had pre-mixed grout in a tub, and it's still doing the job.
