Top Tips From This Video

  • Measure the surface area where you plan to apply your tile before purchasing your tile
  • Pick a color, shape and design that appeals to you and compliments your RV interior
  • Take your time prepping the surface area with a scuff pad to ensure proper adhesion
  • Turn off power and remove any outlet covers
  • The final prep step is to clean the surface area with a de-greasing agent
  • With peel and stick tiles you’ll usually need to start at one edge of your project area rather than from the middle.
  • Cut your tile where necessary using a template you create using paper
