got NEW replacement for kitchen (under warranty) now they are separating and falling off. It is NOT the adhesive holding to wall, it is the individual tiles. They are silver, white and black.
Those in bathroom are like Rodsters and no problem.
The brand we used is "Stickit Tiles"

My second job is installing tile in stick houses.

Cutting small tiles that come in sheets is a bit more tricky than cutting full pieces.

I don't know anything about the stick on tile sheets, or what they are actually made of, or how you cut them, or if you grout them or not. But it seems like real tile might be more weight than I would want to add to a trailer.

It's standard procedure for us to get matching colored caulk and grout. The caulk might work great to fill gaps on the edge and especially the bottoms of the stick on tile. It would prevent water from seeping behind the cabinet. The caulk would also be able to flex along with the trailer.

Accu-tec caulk and grout comes in a whole lot of shades of white, beige and grey.

Peel and stick aluminum

These have held up well so far.

Hey mandolindave! The hubby has had plenty of experience laying tile. While we like the look of it, we were pretty sure it wasn't a good choice for our trailer. The beauty of peel and stick tile is the variety you can find now. Some of them are actual metal tiles. Others are vinyl sheets, usually in sizes very close to real ceramic, glass or metal mosaic tiles. The vinyl tiles are basically squares of wallpaper with a raised texture. "Grout" lines are included. Some are more heat or waterproof than others. All depends on the backing - paper, foil or PVC. Just have to read descriptions carefully to make sure you're getting the right product for your application.

The type I got from Home Depot is foil backed with a raised vinyl tiles and grout lines. They look realistic yet they are moisture resistant. It does say to keep away from flame.

Ours are foil backed too. Not sure yet if they're going behind the stove. We got a Dometic 434 with a glass lid. The new base cabinets and stove are going in before the tile. Then we can evaluate and see how close they are to the heat. Since the "brushed aluminum" tiles we have look pretty realistic, it might be possible to get a sheet or two of metal peel and stick and blend them. There is already another material covering most of that wall from the upper cabinets. It stops about 6 inches from the countertop, so the tile sheets will be cut in half fill in the remainder.

Anyone tried this anywhere in a wet bath? I would love to jazz up the bath in our interstate - maybe just around the soap dispenser...(?)

The peel & stick tile we have is going into our bathroom, which is part of our renovation. We're not relying on just the adhesive on the back to keep it waterproof though. A flexible, waterproof sealer will be applied between the countertop and backsplash. Possibly a thin bead between each section too, just to make sure nothing gets underneath. (We like sealers that cure "clear".) When choosing a product, make sure it doesn't have a paper backing. Water resistant is a good place to start, but water proof is even better.

Fancy Italian Backsplash!

Got my "tile" put in AI Grand Tour bath today... we will see how it lasts. I like the look, but cutting those darned things were tough! (Especially with a not-so-sharp exacto knife)Click image for larger version
