A tile backsplash makes a great addition to a kitchen, it's durable, easy to clean and can enhance the kitchens overall look and functionality in this demonstration, we'll be installing a two-foot-high backsplash with glass tile accents. A substrate of backer board is the first choice for new work. This is what we'll be doing, but tile can be successfully attached to existing walls.
Using mastic mastic is especially formulated, ready to use adhesive that doesn't require mixing and is better than moderate, holding tile to a vertical surface before applying mastic to the wall lightly hand sand the surface with 80 grit sandpaper to roughen it which helps bond the mastic to The wall don't sand away the paint when you're done wipe off the dust with a damp rag on the counter below the space, lay out a row of tiles wide enough to fill the area.
Your tiling adjust the row left or right, so any cut tiles will be the same width on both ends on the wall mark the location of one edge of the tile, that's closest to the center, with a notched trowel spreading a pin, set or mastic across the Wall for the bottom row of tiles hold the trowel at a slight angle and use a sweeping momentum place the edge of the first tile on the plumb line you drew and press it firmly into the mastic or thin set use shims to leave room at the Bottom of the tile for a thin bead of cuff or spaces will also work make sure the base of the tile is parallel with the top of the counter continue setting the bottom row of tiles working out in both directions from the middle.
When you completed the bottom row, continue working upward a row at a time until you reach the top, when you're done, tiling allow the mastic or thin set to dry overnight before grouting fills in the space between the tiles, it's messy so be sure to cover Any areas that you don't want to get dirty using a margin, trowel mix the powder grout with liquid and apply it as recommended skim off the excess grout, with the edge of the float to avoid digging into the joints, move the float diagonally across the tiles allow.
The grout to set to a putty-like consistency when a thumbnail pressed against it doesn't leave an impression it's hard enough for the final cleanup with a damp sponge, wipe the tiles diagonally to clean them. Rinse the sponge, frequently in clean water, remove any remaining haze. Let the grout cure completely, as recommended by the manufacturer, once it's cured, apply a food-safe sealer with a sponge. Sealing, gives the grout greater water and mildew resistance and helps keep it from getting dirty, make sure to wipe off any excess within 10 minutes.
