Trouble-Free Tile. Though intended for the DIY market, Bondera TileMatSet could be a real time-saver for kitchen and bath remodelers too. It’s essentially a giant piece of double-sided tape. You cut it to size, stick the back to the substrate, peel off the protective liner, set the tile, and grout the same day. It’s sold in two sizes: A 10-foot-by-12-inch roll for walls costs $47, and a 10-foot-by-16-inch roll for countertops costs $32. Also available are 4-inch-wide rolls for small areas like backsplashes and 2-inch-wide tape for sealing seams in water-sensitive areas. W.R. Grace & Co., 888/862-8738, bonderatilematset.com
