How to Hang a Peel & Stick Aspect Tile Accent Wall

One thing that I really wanted to do in the laundry is to play with tone on tone texture. I’ve noticed that pops of texture has really become a trend ahead of pops of color. So, I was intrigued by the idea of doing a white tile wall in a room with white paint. The color stays the same, but the texture is what makes it stand out. I was also really excited to try peel and stick tile.

I have never been impressed by peel and stick tile in the past – I always thought that it looked like a puffy sticker circa 1998. But, then I met Aspect Tile at Haven Conference. This is legit GLASS tile y’all. Actual glass tiles with a sticker backing. It’s gorgeous and requires no grout and so I had to give it a try. (the tiles also come in metal, wood, and stone varieties, as well as lots of colors of glass.)

I will preface this with saying that tiling is not that hard and I encourage you to try it. But, if you are scared, this is SO easy! If you can do a sticker, you can do this. I do recommend using a level to be sure that it is very neat. Also, it looks best if you caulk the edges, which is really simple to do.

What you do:

Pick a corner to start in. Pick something with your most straight edges. For us, that is the top left corner. We worked across horizontally and then down in rows.

Your first tile will probably need to be trimmed to create a straight edge. I’m shocked at how easily the tiles snapped in half using really inexpensive tile snips.

Peel the backing and place the tile. Use a level to be sure that it is straight. Press firmly to stick.

The tile is VERY sticky and cannot be re-positioned. We had one piece that we had to remove and we had to use the flat edge of a paint scraper to get it off. It was not sticky any more, so luckily we had extra.

In the end, caulk your seams for a clean look.

We used 18 packs of tile to do this full wall. And I think that it looks STUNNING. It is a gorgeous focal point for this room. And it was so easy to hang! I would 100% recommend Aspect Peel & Stick tiles.
