To inspire you for your recreational vehicle adventures, we spoke with two RV enthusiasts, Jodie and Meagan. Here’s what they had to say about their RV Smart Tiles experience:
Jodie, @jokotravels A full-time VR traveller.
Meagan @revolutiontrailersmb An RV renovation professional.
Q1: What made you choose Smart Tiles over other products?
Jodie: I saw the huge amount of love we received from installing our Smart Tiles backsplash and I had a feeling it would be a HIT! Smart Tiles are the perfect way to revamp a space, especially in the RV world with weight being a huge factor to consider.
Meagan: As a Canadian RV renovation company, we were excited to find a “homegrown” option. SmartTiles popped up in my Instagram feed and we tried them soon after. We have exclusively used them with the exception of one project, but those times ended in the garbage and we replaced them with Smart Tiles.
Q2: Do you have advice about surface preparation before using your Peel and Stick tiles?
J: My best advice for preparation would be to make sure everything is smooth, sanded down and wiped clean so you have a strong foundation and something for the product to adhere to.
M: Our best advice is to make sure the wall is as smooth as possible. We will use an RV tape over any joints between wall panels before we put the tiles on. We prefer to put the tiles directly on the wall board and not prime or paint the area if possible.
Q3: Any recommendations about size, style or shape that gives better results in an RV?
J: Honestly, I don’t think you can go wrong in this department! Smart Tiles has such a beautiful range of products that for me, it comes down to personal taste. The biggest factor is weight distribution and Smart Tiles has us covered in that department! Let your creativity flow, find your style, and have some fun!
M: We have tried many different styles, from the Hexago to Oslo to the Vintage collection. We love how there is a style/size for every application, from a simple row behind a sink to an entire wall. In the end, we do find that larger scale tiles complement the larger surfaces we do in our Reno projects.
