SMART TILES FAQ

Before we explore the many beautiful and convenient Smart Tile options, let’s first explore some of the most frequently asked questions about the product.

1. WHAT ARE SMART TILES?

Smart Tiles are state-of-the-art synthetic tiles made from special, certified low-emission Gel-O material. The tiles look like tile, stone, or other common backsplash materials. The appearance of the tiles is so convincing that many people mistake them for the real thing. The company makes replica tiles in every pattern and variety imaginable. Whatever design or pattern you are looking for, they are likely to produce it.

All peel and stick Smart Tiles look as though grout holds them in place. This adds to the hyperrealism of the synthetic stick-on tiles. All of their sticky faux tile offerings are easy to install. Installing these tiles is also messĀ free. You won’t have to worry about glue, grout, or dust when installing them.

The tiles are easy to place. If you make a mistake, you can simply pull up the tile sheet and place another sheet down. Just know, sheets aren’t reusable once they have been pulled up. The tiles are resistant to indirect heat and moisture.

2. WHAT DO THEY DO?

Smart Tiles remove the complicated work involved with making DIY backsplash upgrades. Anyone can install these convenient and easy to work with adhesive tiles. Once installed, these durable Gel-O tiles stick for as long as you want them to. The company offers a guarantee for this. If any of your tiles do not stick, contact Smart Tiles directly to arrange for replacements.

3. HOW DO SMART TILES WORK?

The tiles come prearranged on sheets. There is adhesive on the back of each sheet to stick it onto a wall easily. The sheets may be cut and trimmed with scissors or a utility knife to fit into any space perfectly. When you are ready to stick the sheet onto the wall, pull back the paper covering the adhesive. Align the sheet onto the area and press the sheet firmly to the clean wall. Repeat the process until the entire area is covered.

4. WHERE CAN THEY GO?

Smart Tiles are best suited for flat areas and dry areas that don’t receive a lot of steam or heat. The tiles may react to extreme humidity and water. They should not be placed near an open flame, including near a gas range or fireplace. Smart Tiles are not suitable for floors, showers, or textured walls.

The tiles are great for kitchen backsplashes, small accents in the bathroom, RVs, and other wall surfaces. The company provides the following recommendations for the “ideal surfaces” to use the tiles on. These surfaces are:

  • Acrylic wall panels
  • Drywall/Sheetrock (painted more than three weeks before installation)
  • Mirrors
  • Smooth ceramic tile
  • Wall linoleum
  • Wallpaper

5. HOW ARE THEY CLEANED?

Smart Tiles are easy to clean using a mild soap or glass cleaner. Avoid using strong chemical cleaning products on these tiles.

Ā 6. DO SHEETS COME IN STANDARD SIZES?

No. Each sheet design has different dimensions. Check the individual measurements for each design to help you determine how much of the product to order. Sheets are sometimes sold in packs. If you buy the tiles from the company’s website, you have the option of buying the tiles individually. Packs are okay to buy when they contain enough sheets to cover the area of your project. When you need less or more, it is better to buy the sheets individually to cut down on waste and expenses.

7. CAN I GET A SAMPLE BEFORE BUYING?

Yes. The company offers inexpensive options to purchase a small four-inch by four-inch sample of the product before committing a larger sheet. The samples are available on their website and are quite cheap. It’s recommended to purchase the sample before buying to see if Smart Tiles are right for your project.

8. WHERE ARE THEY MADE?

Smart Tiles are made in Quebec, Canada by Quinco & Cie Inc. The company has been in the adhesive tile business since 1999.

9. WHERE CAN YOU BUY THEM?

Smart Tiles are available for purchase on the company’s website. They are also sold from retailers such as The Home Depot.
