Well, we installed the peel and stick stainless mosaics behind the bathroom faucet today. It is hard to get it lined up correctly, but seems to adhere to the wall really well. You need to push all the tiles together as you put it on the wall so there are no small gaps which don't look good. Removing the existing wallpaper border was easy. We put the mosaic on top of the vinyl that was behind the border. We used the same peel and stick mosaic to replace the mirrors on the fronts of the overhead storage compartments at the front and back of the trailer. I think it is a more updated look than the mirrors.

That is cool. Why doesn't Jackson Center do the aluminum backsplash in the bathroom just like the kitchen on the Classic? Nothing at all would be better than the ugly, cheesy wallpaper boarder backsplash we have now. When it starts to curl and peel it is out of here.

Looks great! I just purchased the same tiles at Lowes to replace the wallpaper border in the lavatory. I need to make some cuts through the individual tiles to go around an electrical outlet and my water heater switch. Did you make any cuts through the individual metal tiles, and if so, what did you use? I think the metal is thin enough that I can use a razor knife, but I'll defer to the expert!

Yes, we had to cut through some of the tiles. I googled the brand name and came up with some information from the manufacturer as well as some discussion posts as I recall. One recommended option was a mitre saw and my husband loved having an excuse to get one, so that is how we cut ours. You could certainly try your approach first however . The cut edges aren't terribly attractive so you want to hide those in a corner or butted up against the switch plate. The manufacturer recommended extra glue for tiny pieces but we didn't bother and so far so good.

Wolverine, thanks for the pictures and the info on where the tiles came from. My compliments to your wife for a great job of design and execution.

my finished tile project

I finished parts of the interior refreshing early summer. the PO had made so many little holes all over the backsplash, and the dingy white paint was chipping, so I decided to cover it all.

My only fear is that the extreme cold temp in alberta may cause some failure in the stickiness. I always snowblow a path out to it, just to have a look, sigh, and dream of warmer adventures in -40 temperatures.

I used a mitre box and a hack saw, worked like a charm. still have all my fingers.

I am happy with the result.

I think these are quite lovely.

We have a large window behind our galley kitchen, with no backsplash, but I'm trying to think of a place to put a few of these tiles as some point.......

I finished my lavatory back splash and I think it came out really nice. For straight cuts along the tile seams, a razor knife worked fine. For cuts where I had to go through individual tiles, and to make the cutouts for the electrical and water heater switch outlets, I ended up using a saber saw with a metal cutting blade. I stuck down some blue painters tape on the tiles surface before cutting so as not to mar it. Worked perfectly!

backsplash tile

CA Streamer, Nice look ... it really makes the area behind your sink look much better. All the tile jobs posted here look so much better than the original area surfaces did. I can only find a hard tile with stainless top caps that require grout at my local Lowes stores in the Quad Cities so will have to go back and see what others here found for manufacturers info. I was able to find thin self adhesive tiles by Aspect that are larger tiles that come in long and short grained brushed stainless. The tiles are 3" x 6" and one box covers 1 square foot. I suppose this will work for a larger area but I like the smaller tile look better. Ed

Tiles

Thanks Steve, I was just looking at your previous link and I will have to check into these more now that I see what they are like. Again, Thanks. Ed

Hi, all of these metal jobs look great. In my bathroom I made and installed 5" X 7" photos that were taken on trips with our trailer.

Janel, your kitchen backsplash inspires me to go on and do my kitchen with the same tiles I used in the bath area. CAStreamer, your install looks great! You got them all lined up so well. I found that kinda hard given that what looked like straight lines in the trailer weren't actually.

Robert, your backsplash is so unique! Did you cover the pictures with something to make it water resistant?
