How to Re-purpose Leftover Tiles Creatively

Do you have leftover materials from a home improvement project you’ve completed? If so, consider the ways you can re-purpose leftover tiles creatively.

Scottie, of Saved By Scottie, was inspired to turn trash into treasure with some leftover backsplash tiles in a tile trivet project.

She asked us for materials for an upcoming appearance at the Philly Home Show, and she chose our 3×6 Aspect tiles in metal and glass for a trivet project for home show attendees. She also partnered with Pure Bond plywood, and they supplied plywood for the trivet backing. Each workshop attendee was allowed to create their own trivet to bring home.

Read her blog post here, and check out our Aspect brand site to see all the different colors and materials offered for your next backsplash project.

You can also check out Scottie demonstrating her Aspect tile trivet project at the home show here.

Of course, you may have extra tiles from another project. Even flooring tiles can be creatively re-used. This Apartment Therapy blog post describes 13 different ideas to pursue.

More Love for Our DIY Backsplash Products

Today we’re sharing more love for our DIY backsplash products. Two satisfied customers shared their experiences with Aspect and Fasade tiles.

Scottie of the blog Saved By Scottie shared her quick kitchen update with our Aspect glass tiles in Morning Dew.

“When we moved into this house almost two years ago, the one thing I really didn’t like (at all) was the kitchen. It’s not set up logically, the cabinet style does not at all go with the house, and it’s very small,” she writes of her ‘before.’

She goes on to describe how easy the project was and concludes, “Would I do this again? In a heartbeat! I still don’t love the kitchen, but it’s SO much better than it was.”

Amy of the Barefooted Designer used our Fasade backsplash tiles in Hammered in Galvanized Steel. These vinyl panels are easily applied with double-sided tape or construction adhesive, whichever you prefer. She then took it a step further by painting them with a metallic paint she likes.

“One of my favorite things is that even though these tiles look convincingly like metal, you can easily pop a nail through it and hang your art or favorite find onto it.  Just try doing that on your tile backsplash,” she writes in her post.

We’re impressed with the projects our customers undertake and their finished products. It really is amazing how much an impact a new backsplash can make in just a short amount of time and with only a little elbow grease. They are beautiful!


Wednesday Roundup: Blogger Adventures with Aspect Tiles

We’ve been getting a lot of love for our Aspect products in the world of DIY blogger adventures. I wanted to share three recent posts by creative bloggers who each did something unique to three different rooms with these handy peel & stick tiles. It’s a little something I’m going to call the Wednesday Roundup.

In the first post, Ariel explains how she used our Aspect Glass 3×6 tiles in Frost in her bath. However, as a renter in a PMQ (Private Military/Married Quarters provided to members of the military and their families in Canada), she had to be careful about doing something permanent. She wanted to use the tiles in a way that they could be removed when their housing assignment changed. Enter foam core boards. Read all about her creative installation here.

The third post comes to us from Jenny who participated in The One Room Challenge™, a widely anticipated biannual event every April and October. With each round, 20 design bloggers take the challenge and transform a space. Jenny chose to a do a pop art bedroom makeover for her son Josh. She used our Aspect Peel & Stick metal tiles to accent his bed. You can read all about it here.
