RV Backsplash Remodel Ideas
Backsplashes are an essential residential upgrade that allows homeowners or in this case RV owners, the chance to add pizazz and protection to their kitchen area. Backsplashes do exactly as they sound and protect your walls from the splashing of your sinks. Using tile to do this, designers are able to mix and match colors, patterns, and shapes to add flavor to the walls while keeping them protected.
In today’s article, we will be exploring peel and stick backsplash tiles and why they make good sense for RV’s and old camper remodels. Let’s not waste any more time and buckle up and upgrade our RVs.

We will start at the beginning here. You’ve decided that you need to upgrade your RV and you are looking for creative and fun ways to do so. You land on adding some backsplash and your interest is peaked by the extremely popular peel and stick tiles.
Now you need some ideas on how to do this and what will spruce up your home on wheels. The fun part here is that you get to start by choosing your own path. You can choose to play it safe or go bold. Do you want a sleek and modern look or a rustic and charming look? Whichever you choose, make sure it’s in line with the theme you have or will have throughout the rest of your RV.
Here are a few ideas:
If you want to go bold, then consider using big bold shapes and vibrant colors. This can be larger than normal rectangle tiles or fish scale tiles and include colors that range from pastels to sparkly gold.
If you a looking for a clean modern look then considering grayscales and metallic designs. Keep tiles smaller and uniformly shaped. The goal here is to be simple and look clean, like stainless steel.
Lastly, if you are looking for a charming rustic look you can get rural with it. Creating a faux brick or stone design or Spanish-themed tile design. The options are plentiful and they will have your guests feeling that country charm.
What type of tile backsplash should I put in an RV
Like any renovation project, you will have an array of materials to choose from. In the case of backsplashes, this is no exception. We could walk through all of the different options but instead, let’s look at why peel and stick tiles are the best options.

How to build a better backsplash with peel and stick tiles for RVs
Regular backsplashes require a certain level of handiness and craftmanship. Peel and stick help alleviate that and make it so that anyone can jazz up their RV. That said, making it easier does not mean it should be taken lightly.
Attention to detail here will be imperative as you do the install. Start with a clean surface area to make sure the backsplash sticks well and lasts. Make sure you plan ahead and are aware of any tricky corners, windows, outlets, or trim you need to workaround. A helpful hint here is to trace the uneven area onto the tile and cut out the areas before applying.
As you apply the tiles go back and smooth out any bubbles or uneven parts. This extra touch will help make sure that you get the finish you are looking for.
Once this is done, you will add the finishing touch. Add some acrylic caulk or bead of silicone around the edges to make the project complete.
