When it comes to choosing a kitchen backsplash, some people simply want an eye-catching cover up, like a fancy bandage or a bit of lipstick. With their peel-and-stick nature, self-adhesive backsplash tiles are perhaps the easiest way to get a beautiful kitchen backsplash without a lot of work.

Self-adhesive backsplash tiles are available in a wide range of colors and styles, including glass mosaic tiles, faux metal patterns, painted artistic squares and simple laminate designs. The versatile nature of self-adhesive backsplash tiles makes them not only a simple design solution, but also a fun one. They can be applied behind kitchen sinks or behind stovetops (where you'll also want a quiet kitchen exhaust fan.)

Although self-adhesive backsplashes are simple to install and require little cleanup, it is important to prepare the wall before applying the material. Experts recommend cleaning drywall or plaster walls with warm, soapy water. It is also necessary to fill in any cracks or holes on a wall to avoid an uneven surface. Be sure to smooth the putty and let it completely dry before applying the backsplash tiles.

Consider self-adhesive tiles that have the look of light blue glass in a light-colored, bright kitchen design. The light blue tiles will provide a gorgeous focal point for a kitchen accented by cream-colored cabinetry and classic marble countertops.

On the other hand, self-adhesive faux tin tiles can be an inexpensive alternative in a rustic kitchen that needs a pop of flair in the midst of its reclaimed wood cabinets.
