Looking to make a mosaic tile backsplash between my range and vent hood. I am looking at the various tile options out there and am considering the peel and stick. Do these really adhere as well as they state? I am concerned with the adhesion level since I would be using them behind a range and the area is exposed to a decent amount of heat.
Never seen a peel and stick mosaic.
I use peel and stick vinyl for closet flooring in various places - cheap, easy to clean, and the expense of using a better quality flooring there does not seem to be worth it. The last batch I got was a tolerably well-done "wood-look" and had the added advantage of not stinking like the old ones (10 years or more ago) I had last used.
I would not put them in a hot/steamy/wet area - that would be best served by a more traditional mortar tile attachment, or (what my house growing up had) a sheet of stainless steel (it was easy to clean, fireproof, and somewhat predated the popularity of an "industrial look." It's not for everyone.)
Upon searching for "peel and stick mosaic" I see that the probable maker claims they are suited to the use, but I'd still take that claim with a heathy dose of salt, personally. As a confirmed pessimist I'd also take a scrap piece and try to set fire to it. Ceramic or glass is "fireproof" not merely "heat resistant." Likewise, consider the less-glowing reviews as well as the glowing ones.
