    You can find some of these tools here.

    If you are installing the tiles behind a gas hob without a back control panel we strongly recommend to install our Smart Panel first. You may also want to complete your tiling project with a thin border. You can find our smart accessories here

    If you would like to know more about these tiles we recommend that you read our FAQs. You can find our installation tutorials here.

    Watch this short video for more details about the tiles and how to install them.

    This is how you install the self-adhesive tiles. Make sure that you follow all the instructions carefully:

    1. CLEANING: Wash the surface with a powerful grease-remover such as sugar soap. Make sure you allow enough time for the surface to dry properly.
    2. GUIDELINE: using a level or chalk line, trace a guideline to ensure perfect alignment using a tile sheet to mark the height of your guideline on the lowest side of the bench top
    3. MEASURING & CUTTING: use a utility knife and a metal ruler to trim and shape your tiles around electrical outlets or other irregularities. Measure and mark your tiles and then lay it on a cutting mat to cut off the unwanted portion.
    4. PEEL: Fold back half of the protective paper in the back without touching the adhesive portion with your fingers. We strongly recommend you wash your hands before you start the installation to ensure no dust particles or greasy residue are transferred to the adhesive.
    5. ALIGN & STICK: Now align the adhesive portion with your guideline and apply a light pressure. This will allow you to validate the positioning of your tiles. Once you are satisfied with it's placement and alignment, you may remove the rest of the protective paper and apply a firm pressure across the entire surface.
    6. OVERLAPPING: Once you've successfully installed the first sheet of tiles, you may continue the process making sure you overlap all the grout lines as you go. This will result in a continious and even layout of the entire project.

  • Calculate the surface you need to cover. This is easiest done by splitting each surface into sections as per the picture below. You will find that our product listing says how much each pack will cover. We recommend adding a minimum of 10% extra for wastage. Larger tiles often require more wastage.

  • Smart Tiles® will stick on your walls for as long as you wish them to. That's our guarantee! We offer replacement of defective Smart Tiles following file investigation and depending on certain conditions. Smart Tiles® also guarantee the products for a period of thirty (30) days starting from the date of purchase and applies only to design or manufacture defects, excluding any hue or colour change and labour expenses. For the warranty to be valid, the manufacturer installation recommendations must be followed.

    1. Wait a period of three weeks before affixing Smart Tiles on a freshly painted wall to allow the paint to penetrate and dry thoroughly.
    2. The surface must be smooth and undamaged.
    3. The surface must be clean and dry.
    4. You should clean the surface with a degreaser such as sugar soap.
    5. During installation, the ambient temperature must be at least 18°C and should not exceed 35°C.
    6. Smart Tiles should not be exposed to direct steam, or be in direct contact with a heat source and should not be submerged in water (do not install in the shower).
    7. To install behind a gas range without a protective rear panel, allow a height of 20 centimetres above the surface to prevent the tiles from coming in contact with open flame and we recommend installing our Smart Panel. If there is a wall to the right or left side of the range, Smart Tiles must be installed at least six centimetres away.
    8. Keep a distance of at least six centimetres between an oven toaster grill and wall covered with Smart Tiles.
    9. If you decide to remove the Smart Tiles once they have been firmly applied, they cannot be reused.
    10. Smart Tiles are not designed to cover floors, countertops or work surfaces, or to serve as a trivet.
    11. For maintenance, you should only use a mild non-abrasive product.

    Avoid cleaning products containing bleach. Avoid food with strong colouring like turmeric and curry spices, grinded coffee, food colouring and tomato sauce as they may stain the surface

Subway tiles

Second time we’ve used these and they are amazing. Look fantastic, easy to apply and durable

Looks great, Takew time with application

This has lifted my old drab flat pack kitchen for the next few years until I can afford a seriously funded kitchen make over. The small subway have a very classic looks that really goes with any kitchen. I like that they have a nice finish and almost look glass like in nature. Easy to stick over my existing tiles as they are super adhesive and very thick vinyl to give that tiles appearance. Saying that you can stick and res-tick them to perfection. Have a set of tweezers ready to take up an end in case you have made a mistake with application and need to grab an end. As in the attached video use some strong tape tp hold it in place while you peel it away. I used some electrical/ Gaffa tape. Take your time with application as it can be a bit tricky when it comes to electrical outlets. For electrical outlets in your kitchen make sure you cute the larger sheet around one part of one side of the outlet each time, rather than try and cut a hole into it. Then trim excess to make the outlet cover stay in place. This took me a few times to sort out but it was better than my first few attempts at a puzzle style applications. Also I did this on my own as a non experienced DIY woman and the family were impressed with the overall look. Order an extra pack as I think the few few times I tried I made a lot of mistakes but then it all fell into place. Better to have leftovers. Love the product and have now decided to try and do a vinyl kitchen top!
