Smart tiles in the kitchen?

Hi y'all! We just purchased our 2013 V-CROSS today, and would like to add some smart tile back splash in the kitchen area. Have any of you done this already? If so, would you please share pictures of your projects? Thanks!

Hello. I am planning the same Lowes nor Home Depot here stock them. I wanted to look before I order..looks difficult to do that. If I get mine done first.... I will post. Our trailer has the "wall paper/tile backsplash.

I'd like to see them before we purchased the sheets too....Planning to head over to Home Depot and Lowe's this afternoon and check their inventory. Watched an instalation video online and it looks fairly simple to do. Looking forward to seeing your finished product!

Home Depot...I think? Had a sale. 40% off. Naturally they were out on-line of the two colors I liked.

I have done this and it looks great! I used the metal tiles, but they are very easy to use. I have a picture of them installed, but can't seem to find it at the moment.

Here's a link about the smart tile mod from another forum:

RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Do It Yourself Modifications and Upgrades (DIY): Smart Tile

And yet another link:

Hubby put up the smart tile today. I think it looks great! $44.00 at Lowe's for 6 sheets. We had just enough. Didn't want to go all the way to the wall....thought it would look funny cause we'd have to take it all the way up the side wall. I'll post daytime pics by weeks end.
