Hey guys! So, since I moved into my apartment I knew I had to update it, but I didn’t want to lose my deposit. I was searching and searching for the perfect solution for my rental kitchen. I have used shelf liner in my past apartment, but I wanted something that looked a little nicer and 3-dimensional…like real tile.
I reached out to Tic Tac Tiles to see if these would be OK to use in my rental. They assured me they would be ok.
The website says they are sticky enough to last until you decide to move or change them out. They can easily be removed by applying heat and lifting/peeling them off the wall.
I used 5 packs total for the rental kitchen and if you’re unsure how many packs you will need, please check out How to Measure for Your Backsplash
You don’t need to sand, grout, or any fancy tools.
- Remove all your outlet covers and wipe down your walls. Make sure you get rid of any grease, crumbs, etc…I used an ammonia-free multi-surface cleaner.
- You will need a clean and sleek surface to adhere these stickers to your wall. They are resistant to heat and moisture, and stain resistant. You can clean these by using a wet towel.
- For jagged-edge designs you will want to cut off the overlapping tabs and apply that to the straight edge on the wall. Start overlapping the tiles in one direction the whole way through.
Make your guideline using a chalkline or level. I didn’t have either so I used the back of the counter (the part that goes up the wall) as my guide.
These tiles comes in two different kinds. There are block and brick style. I purchased the brick style. On one side of the tile sheet there is an “overlap here” tab.
