An Easy Tile Upgrade

While wandering through a home-improvement store, my wife came across some peel-and-stick tiles. We looked at a few different options, but decided to go with the product that seemed to be the easiest to install – a “stainless” pattern with no need for any grout at all. We simply cut the tiles to size, using a razor blade to cut between the tiles, peeled of the adhesive backing:

… and pressed down:

There’s not a straight line on a boat, and the “rectangle” countertop was no exception. So of course some tiles needed to be cut — a Dremel made quick work of these tiles, and it was surprisingly easy to get straight cuts with it.

After a few hours, the project was complete. Here are some before-and-after shots:
