The walls in the kitchen are designed to be a little different to the rest of the home. Kitchen walls are exposed moisture in the air and grease from cooking. And they are subject to the occasional spills that occur in all kitchens. So the walls must be able to accommodate this.
Painters take this into account when they do kitchen walls. Kitchens are painted with either glossy paint, which has some moisture and stain resistant properties, or the more modern eggshell paint which also resists water and staining to some extent. And tiles are common in kitchens because that are completely water proof, and almost entirely stain resistant.
Peel and Stick Tile sheets have similar water resistant and stain resistant properties to traditional tiles. So they are a fine option for kitchens. And they have the advantages of being inexpensive and very easy to use. These Peel and Stick tiles can be put up in a hour or two, with no mess or fuss.
Peel and Stick Backsplash
A Splash-back is the tiled section behind the stove cooking surface. It protects the wall from grease, moisture and other splashes that come from cooking on a bench-top. For many decades Traditional tiles were used for this Splash-back, but modern peel and stick tiles are now also being used as they are equally effective.
Bathroom Wall Tiles
Bathrooms, like kitchens, are also subject to moisture. They are also subject to soap scum. So the walls are designed accordingly. Glossy paint and tiles are ubiquitous in bathrooms because there have far better moisture repelling qualities than Matt painted plaster walls.
Stick On Tiles work well for most bathroom surfaces that have moderate exposure to moisture. They won’t have problems with moisture, and they won’t have problems with mould or mildew. In some ways this is an advantage over traditional tiles which can have mould/mildew problem in the grout.
