    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.

    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.
