We are considering using the Simple Mat underneath tiles for a backsplash. The tiles will not get wet. BUT, we have a toaster oven we usually keep on the counter and is usually sitting a few inches from the painted drywall. Is this going to be an issue? We will grout & seal tile.
Asked by: Atown
We have used Simple Mat successfully on several occasions including the kitchen backsplash, but never in an area where a great deal of heat would be close to the tiles. Personally, I would not recommend this situation since the tiles could eventually get hot if close to the oven over a period of minutes (15-20) and the product is actually "glue" paper. After repeats, the tiles would probably loosen.

Why must my tiles be grouted in 24 hours using simplemat?

Started tiling first section but wont be able to finish cutting tiles for a couple of days. Have at least 10 that are un-cut in the first section.
Asked by: Subway tiler
be careful if you use sealer with simple mat. i used sealer on my stone mosaic tiles and it began to fall off before i then had a chance to grout.

SimpleMat 10 sq. ft. Tile Setting Mat is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 390.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product did what it said! After reading other reviews I was skeptical about this product but I have never put up tile and this looked easier and faster! Also my wife likes to have things done sooner than later. I took my time with the first set-up of about 4 feet long and made sure it was secure against the wall. I used mosaic glass tiles on a sheet and saw another review saying they fell off. There was NO PROBLEM! Stuck on first application and I did not press hard so I could adjust if needed and that worked! It installed fast and put grout on immediately after. Again no problem! The only thing is be sure you are correct on your measurements because once secure on the wall it is staying and once the glass tile is pressed it does hold very well. After a couple of days of the grout drying I pulled on the tiles to see how well they were secure and they were not budging. The product did what it said! I also recommend watching some videos they have on it. That helped out a little on understanding the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Hate This Product If you enjoy working with flypaper, this is for you. Horrible product design - it has paper backing on only one side - which means it comes off the roll sticky on one side, and likes to fold back on itself as you are measuring and cutting, creating a Very Expensive lump of unusable sticky plastic. If you do manage to actually get it on the wall, it comes off the roll insanely weinkled, and you are supposed to “smooth it out” with a grout float..Huh? My neighbor’s Hummer couldn’t flatten this once it’s stuck to the wall. And good luck removing the paper backing once it’s up, since you are supposed to overlap the courses. And did I mention how expensive it is? $75 bought me less than it took to cover the top 2’ of 3 of the walls of my tiny 3’ x 5’ powder room, leaving part of the 3rd wall and the complete 4th wall bare. Thank goodness I attempted this project while my husband was away for the wknd. I can run out and buy regular thinset mortar to complete the job, and ge’ll Never know how much time and money I wasted on this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tiling made easy with SimpleMat I have been using traditional methods to set wall tile and thought I would give SimpleMat a try on a backsplash project. I install a lot of self-adhesive vinyl tile so I felt right at home with this product. I recommend priming the wall first before installing SimpleMat to insure optimum adhesion. I also recommend peeling off just one side of the backing paper to make handling and aligning it a lot easier. If you are working with heavy ceramic tile, there is a good chance that they might slide down from their weight. In this instance, make sure that your bottom row of tile are securely in place and use the “hard” plastic spacers to help support the remaining rows of tile. As with self-stick vinyl tile, you have to be very careful when placing tile on SimpleMat as you can’t reposition the tile once set in place as with mortar. All in all, I was very happy with my first experience with SimpleMat. I will certainly be using this product whenever I can on tiling projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

I have literally had tile sitting on my kitchen counter for over a year, because I couldn't find anyone to install it for me. I finally gave up and bought some kind of grout and adhesive stuff the sales guy suggested. Everything was fine until morning when half of the tiles had slid down. I ripped everything off the wall and then starting researching other ways to install. I found SimpleMat by accident. When I found out there was such a thing my online Home Depot search said it wasn't available at my store. Wrong! It was there and I picked some up. Super easy to use! I was thrilled when I got up and the tile were still firmly in place. I was going to use them as is, but then decided to grout over the tiles. Kind of wish I hadn't done that now, but they still look great. Now that I know it is so easy to install tiles, I am planning on using SimpleMat in my bathroom.

I was installing a 8x8 cement tile and subway tile that was 3x6. 8x8 is the maximum size to install on this mat so I knew that was taking a chance. At first I was impressed, it was really easy to put up and seemed like it was gonna work good. The 8x8 wouldn't stay in its place I had to really work with it to get it to stay in place long enough to get really stuck there. In the end the tile turned out ok but I do have one small cut of tile loose and the grout has cracked. I really feel like I may have to redo my kitchen backsplash in the future. As for the subway tile. I have had more problems with it moving than the big tile. I have lots of cracked grout on this tile. I just wouldn't recommend simple mat. I wish I would have just went the messy way at least I could trust it to hold.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruined project I was hesitant to try this product, but with all the peel and stick tiles and such performing well nowadays, I decided to try and save myself a bunch of time vs. using thinset, which was my initial instinct. My glass mosaic tile went up quick, everything seemed secure, so I grouted that evening. The next day, I caulked around the edges, then two hours later, the tile fell straight down on my brand new granite! Caulk and busted grout everywhere! In addition, this was $15/sq ft tile, and it was ruined because I already had grouted, and it had dried. Now I have to try to get the mat off the drywall (at least it stuck to the drywall so good it is almost impossible to get off) and go back and use thinset. Very expensive mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
