The Before and After: From Mess to Magic of a RV Kitchen Makeover
As you can see this little kitchen needed some TLC. Keep reading because this mess turned into a magical space.
Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of why adhesive tiles are a game-changer when it comes to RV kitchen makeover.
The Game-Changing Nature of Adhesive Tiles in a RV Kitchen Makeover
Traditional tiles often require the expertise of a seasoned tiler, along with a laundry list of tools and materials. It can be a daunting task, especially for those of us who might not have a DIY background.
But with adhesive tiles, the name of the game is “Easy Does It.” You don’t need to be a DIY pro to handle them. In fact, you’ll find that these tiles are lightweight and incredibly user-friendly. Armed with a utility knife or sharp scissors and a measuring tape, you’re well on your way to a successful installation. No need to invest in heavy-duty tile cutters or mix batches of adhesive.
One of the greatest perks is the lack of mess. Traditional tile installations can leave your RV kitchen looking like a construction site for days if not weeks. Adhesive tiles, on the other hand, keep things clean and tidy. There’s no wet mortar, no grout to mix and apply, and certainly no need for extensive cleanup.
And did I mention the time factor? While traditional tiles may require you to wait patiently for the adhesive and grout to dry before you can use your kitchen again, adhesive tiles provide near-instant gratification. You can admire your revamped space almost immediately, making it perfect for those weekend projects.
So, in the realm of ease and convenience, adhesive tiles win hands down. They’re designed with the everyday DIY enthusiast in mind, and they truly shine when it comes to hassle-free transformations, which is especially important for busy RV enthusiasts like us!
Step-by-Step Installation Guide
Start by removing the plastic backing and apply it to the bottom right or left corner (wherever you want to start) fitting them together like a puzzle.
Once you have filled in the entire area, start cutting the small pieces and fit them in where needed. Use your measuring tape for the tight areas. Notice I took the frame off the window before starting this project. I did this so could apply the tile under the frame so it would have a smooth and finished look.
Once I was done applying the tile, I applied chalking along the edges.
Here’s a little PRO TIP: Add tape before applying the chalking this will give you a perfectly straight line and not smuggled edges. Use your finger to smooth it out if needed. Then Take a damp rag to give it a smooth finish.
Remove the tape immediately. Now you have a perfect caulking line.
There you have it! A beautiful tile backsplash on a budget. OH, and in case you’re wondering, I also covered the refrigerator panels with an adhesive washable product.
