Peel and Stick Removable Brick Backsplash
I reserve the right to change my mind about anything and everything at any time. – Picturequotes.com
I think I have home decorating ADD sometimes. Anyone else?
Me: Oh, I love this style it is sooooo……… oh look, did you see that (completely different)?
Just when I think I won’t change, I find something else I like.
To be fair, part of the problem is I don’t particularly care for the “IN” thing. As soon as I start seeing something everywhere I am out.
This is why I can find it hard spending a lot of money on something unless I am REALLY sure.
One of the projects I have considered doing a subway kitchen backsplash for years. I couldn’t pull the trigger on it so we opted for this peel and stick version to live with it and see how it goes (probation). Now, subway tile is everywhere so I’m not 100% convinced I want the real deal. This is exactly why the peel and stick version has been a FANTASTIC OPTION for us.
So, why not try it again on this room…
We decided to continue this trial relationship status with our upstairs “game room” or “man cave” area. We have done several projects in this room:
- Game Room Reveal- Carpet Remnant Into Rug
- Brass Ceiling Fan Makeover
- Industrial Bar Table -Game Room ORC
- And painted the cabinets with gel stain – 20 Java Gel Stain Tips
This time we are trying this peel and stick removable brick backsplash.
So far, I actually think I could use the P word here (permanent) and see a real brick backsplash in our future. So, now all we need to do is find the time, money, and the exact one we like. 😉In the meantime, this is a great solution for this room.
The downstairs peel and stick paper has never budged. It has been completely faithful in it’s marriage to our wall. The brick hasn’t been quite as faithful. There are some differences:
- the wall upstairs is more textured
- the temperature is different
- different brand
Although we have only had two small incidents in which the paper started to peel back in the corners; not a big deal so far as we just stuck it back up, it’s worked great. From my research, this seems to be a textured wall issue. The backsplash wall in the kitchen was smooth and as I said, no issues.
In these situations, we highly recommend peel and stick backsplashes:
- you are unsure if you want that design for YEARS
- currently renting
- strapped for cash
- want a change that can be done in no time
If you fall under any of these categories, we believe this can be a great product for you as it’s been for us.
Again, if you have textured walls or possibly high humidity, you may want to buy one roll and test it to see how it goes. It’s easy to remove if it doesn’t work for you.
Finally, it may say X amount of square footage but that won’t take into count the extra you will need to line up the pattern, just like wallpaper. You will need more than you think. We used two rolls for this area.
