The Lowdown on Peel and Stick Tiles from Dollar Tree
With DIY projects gaining popularity, many people are turning to peel and stick tiles as a budget-friendly option for sprucing up their homes. Dollar Tree offers an array of peel and stick tiles, but do they really work? Let’s find out!
Peel and stick tiles are exactly what they sound like – tiles with adhesive backing. The best part is that they don’t require any additional adhesive or grout. Simply peel off the backing and stick them on your wall or furniture piece. These tiles come in various styles, including faux wood, marble, stone, and even floral and geometric patterns. While you can find similar tiles on Amazon and other stores, Dollar Tree offers them at an unbeatable price of just $1.25 per tile.
To give you an honest review, let’s take a closer look at how to apply and use these peel and stick tiles. We’ll explore a step-by-step guide and discuss their durability and suitable areas for application.
How to Apply Dollar Tree Peel and Stick Tiles
Before starting, make sure the area where you’ll be applying the tiles is clean and dry. Dollar Tree’s wall tiles come with picture instructions that are easy to follow. Here are the basic steps:
Step 1. Remove the Backing
Start by peeling off the backing of each wall tile. The tiles even have helpful arrows to guide you on which way to place them.
Step 2. Secure the Tile
Press the tile firmly against the desired surface, starting from one end and gradually smoothing and pressing it across. You’ll notice how secure and visually appealing it looks.
Step 3. Cut Smaller Pieces if Needed
If your project requires smaller cut pieces, you can use regular scissors to trim the tiles accordingly. However, once you cut the tile, the adhesive backing comes off, making it necessary to use a little extra adhesive for sticking.
Step 4. Spray Cut Pieces with Adhesive
To secure the cut pieces, I recommend using Gorilla glue spray adhesive. Simply spray the adhesive on the back of the smaller pieces and place them just like you did with the larger ones. Press firmly for a secure bond.
Step 5. Continue to Cover the Area
If you have leftover tiles, consider using them to enhance other areas. For example, you can add them to the top of furniture pieces or create beautiful accent walls. Get creative with the placement, and don’t forget to step back and appreciate the transformation!
Durability and Suitable Areas for Dollar Tree Peel and Stick Tiles
Now, let’s address some common concerns regarding the durability and suitable areas for these peel and stick tiles. Are they durable enough for everyday use? While the tiles hold up well when used as a backsplash without cutting, it’s important to use adhesive on any cut pieces for long-lasting results.
In terms of durability, I completed a project using these tiles in September, and after three months, I have had no issues with them coming off or peeling. They have even withstood the moisture in my bathroom without any damage. However, I would recommend using them for smaller accent walls or furniture surfaces rather than large walls. For larger projects, it’s advisable to invest in more expensive wall tiles.
Pros and Cons of Dollar Tree Peel and Stick Tiles
Let’s weigh the pros and cons of using Dollar Tree peel and stick tiles to help you make an informed decision:
- Inexpensive compared to traditional tile options.
- Easy to install, even for beginners.
- Widely available at most dollar stores.
- Perfect for covering up minor imperfections.
- Lower quality compared to more expensive options.
- Adhesive backing may come off when cutting tiles.
With these factors in mind, Dollar Tree peel and stick tiles can be a great budget-friendly option for your next DIY project. I used them to create a stunning backsplash on my dry sink, and I’m thrilled with the results. However, for a complete kitchen remodel, I would recommend exploring other wall tile options.
