Tiling any surface in your home is a test in patience. There's time spent spacing, and waiting for things to cure before moving on, but a new product called Simplemat is making it as easy as press, peel and stick. Seriously, check out the video after the jump!

Simplemat adheres tile over your existing wall without extra hassle. It doesn't matter if you have existing tile, or old wall paper, there's no need to remove it before using this extra sticky product.

In a nutshell, it eliminates the need for mortar and the drying and cure time that goes along with that. If you're not into covering up old tile, we can see the product being used on thin plywood to make a "faux-backsplash" for renters, who might be staying a few years, but don't have the landlord approval to re-tile over the horrible 80's motif that might currently exist. We're not sure if you can remove tiles from the Simplemat once they're stuck, but we think it's a cool product none the less.

You can read more about the product over at the Simplemat website, where everyone looks so cheery and helpful.

How would you put it to use? Let us know in the comments below!
