Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RGHomeowner Simplemat adhesive mat works great and is easy to use.
I loved the product. It is very easy to install and effective to use. One word of caution. I used this on a wall behind a beverage, refrigerator. I put my tile up but did not have time to grout it that day. I pushed the refrigerator back against the wall. The heat from the refrigerator caused a few tiles to come loose and fall over night. Easy to fix, put tile back up and grouted next day and all done. Looks great.
I mention this only because of the heat of the refrigerator. I had put up other wall tile and left it tiled without grout for several days, with no issues.
Great product. I highly recommend it. Very easy and effective.

I was not sure if the SimpleMate sheets would work with my stone peddle backsplash. I am remodeling my half bath with a stone peddle backsplash around the sink cabinet. The SimpleMate sheets were very easy to install, took no time at all and to my surprise the stone peddles stayed put and did not fall. The outcome turned out wonderful. I will for sure buy SimpleMate again. I am so glad I purchase this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Upset Do not use this product!
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! We decided to try this product at our own house before we started using it for our Home Improvement business. Thank goodness we did! The product went on super easy and we had our kitchen backsplash done within a few hours. The next day we used our oven (backsplash is on side and behind oven) and everything was still great. By the next morning, ALL of the backsplash literally fell off the walls. After reading the reviews below, I have now realized that this product does not hold up with any kind of heat. The oven was literally on for 30 minutes. Trust me, do not use this product or be ready to wake up with it on the floor.

I did the glass tile installation all on my own using 1x2 inch glass tile with a mesh backing. I couldn't have done this without the Simple Mat. Why in the world would anybody use anything but this product. I am a 43 year old female and proud as heck of myself for a job well done!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CabanaBoy Negative reviews but positive results
After reading the negative reviews on this product I was hesitant to embark on my back-splash project using SimpleMat. I can honestly say if it was any easier it would hang itself on the wall. I cut it using a utility knife, I pressed it to the wall using a paint roller, and I mounted 3" by 6" subway tiles onto it. I put the grout on 2 days later. It was easy to cut, there was little or no waste and I did not encounter any issues of tiles falling off or problems placing the tiles onto the SimpleMat. All you need is common sense and a reasonable amount of DIY ability. I had never done any tile work in my life, but the idea of avoiding the mess of a tile base held great appeal to me and the only thing I had to clean up was the paper backing from the SimpleMat. I consider it to be expensive but worth it. I only had to do 10 sf so it was not a big deal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jt0102 Easier than I thought
I was a little nervous about using this but when I was at HD another customer (tile guy) said he had a friend that used it with success. I decided to give it a try. Super easy to use if you follow the directions. I had no issues putting it up or cutting it, It is very hard to move once you stick it. I grouted right away and as of a few days later my tile is firmly on the wall. This is the second time I've tiled, made the mistake of buying the premixed SimpleGrout on glass tile only to figure out that it's sanded grout. I have a few scrathes that I fixed with car wax-live and learn! Very happy with the product so far & I would use it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Starfish1125 So easy to use!
An employee talked us into using this product and my husband was skeptical. However, knowing that we were working with limited available time and energy, we decided to bite the bullet and absorb the additional cost of this product against the lesser cost of mastic.
Wow - were we glad we did. This product was so easy to use and there was zero clean up needed. Just throw away the paper backing. That's it! The tile stuck beautifully and our tile job took 2 hours as opposed to 4 or more. You also have the ability to grout the same day, instead of having to wait 24 hours. We will use this product again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greenthumbs Very easy to use
I was a little nervous to use this product after reading the previous reviews and learning about tiles falling. However, I never tiled before and was dealing with a tight space between the wall and a faucet so I gave this product a try. I followed the directions that came in the box, including washing all the tiles and letting them completely dry before placing them onto Simplemat. When I came back the next day none of the tiles had moved off the wall from the day before, so I then grouted. The kitchen came out great! Simplemat saved a lot of time and clean up by not having to use a thinset. The only difficulties I had was using the 30 sq. ft. roll as compared to the 10 sq ft. sheets because the roll doesn't have paper on both sides of the Simplemat, which makes cutting a little difficult. Also a word of advice, cover the Simplemat with the paper if you aren't able to tile right away because you will lose the stickiness of the product when it is left in the open air.
