How to Install Peel and Stick Tiles in a Kitchen Directly Over Existing Tiles?

When it's time to remodel a kitchen, the backsplash is often a headache. Replacing it involves breaking it and redoing part of the wall for the next backsplash. Is there another alternative to save time and money?




Do not remove your old kitchen backsplash. Leave it there. You can simply install Smart Tiles peel and stick tiles directly over it.


Some shapes of tiles (ex: diamond) have more texture than others. We recommend testing with 1 or 2 tiles before doing the full wall.


Installing Smart Tiles Stick On Tiles


The Smart Tiles adhesive allows you to install the Smart Tiles directly over the existing backsplash tiles, like glass tiles, for a simple and fast installation.


Complete your kitchen remodeling with peel and stick tiles in four steps:


  1. Wash the surface and grout lines with a powerful grease remover and wait for it to dry.
  2. Measure and mark the self-adhesive backsplash tile.
  3. If necessary, cut the peel and stick tiles using a cutter or sharp scissors.
  4. Now align and stick the Smart Tiles at your own pace.

Adhesive Capacity to All Surfaces


Glass tiles, ceramic tiles and even a painted wall can be covered with Smart Tiles peel and stick wall tiles.


Wall conditions:


  1. Smooth
  2. Without dents
  3. Clean
  4. And dry


Some sanding may be necessary. Use the right sandpaper grit on the surface.


You may need to repair some imperfections on the previous backsplash tiles or grout lines with spackling paste.


In all these cases, do not forget to clean the wall later.

You have nothing to break and then nothing to fix. No more worries about the trowel, hammer, glue and tile cutter and…no more worries about grout!
