is there any peel and stick tile that could be used in wet location? i have an apartment, which a tenant moved out - its dirty and dingy.

i dont want to rip the entire bathroom yet, but will plan on doing so 2-3 years later.

The bathroom tiles are old style and i would like to just use peel and stick to cover it for time being. This area will be in the bathtub area.

from googling, it looks like they are not meant for wet location, but may be there are some thats good for wet location that i didnt come across yet.

Thanks!

To my knowledge there is nothing "peel-n-stick" that will work in a wet area. You may have to move your time table up in order to keep things from deteriorating with tenants involved.

If the existing tile is good and waterproof, then there's no harm in trying peel and stick. Even though it's not recommended for that, in your case it's just a temporary aesthetic fix. I might expect it to last 6 months though, not 3 years.

Thanks. I will plan on putting in a tub surround. And then the other wall, I will give the peel and stick a try. What adhesive would you suggest for peel and stick and tub surround? I understand peel and stick has adhesive already but I want to put more on the ceramic tile itself.

But you do have to sand the tile and may not be easy. You may need a ceramic or diamond abrasive to scratch it.

When you apply a shower panel to a wall coated with adhesive, you can move the panel a little to assist with finial positioning.

Not sure you would have that ability using double stick tape.

Not much sense in that. It's designed to stick well by itself. A smooth, flat surface such as clean ceramic tile is actually a good surface for it to stick to. In fact I wouldn't hesitate to put it over a backsplash. Depending on the size of the existing tile and grout lines, I might fill in the grout lines first though. Not sure with what, possibly joint compound.
