A tile backsplash Lowe's has lots of tiles to choose from including mosaics on a mesh backing, which makes the installation easier, quick tip. A tile backsplash in your kitchen can go right over drywall, since kitchens are not considered wet areas like a shower begin with a little prep turn off the power and remove the outlet covers tape off the outlets, cabinets, and countertops move your appliances and attach a temporary Ledger board: where the backsplash ends you may have to tuck the outlets into the boxes.
Your walls should be clean. A quick wipe down with TSP and water is a good idea, and glossy surfaces will need to be sanded or D glossed. Also, check that the wall is relatively flat, apply joint compound to any dents dips or ripples deeper than 1/16 inch, let it dry sand, smooth and prime when the preps complete plan, your layout tile backsplashes need an eighth-inch expansion gap around the perimeter and some patterns.
Comb over the mortar, with the notched trowel grab the first piece of tile and press it onto the wall with a little twist gently press against it with a rubber float. If you need to make a cut to the second piece mark the tile and cut it with a wet soft mesh side, up, be careful with the sharp edges. Use nippers for small cuts apply the next piece the same way and use spacers if needed, keep installing the tiles working in small sections and make sure to check level frequently remember to leave an eighth inch gap at the countertop let the thin set dry for 24 Hours, another installation option is to use adhesive mats instead of thin-set just press peel and stick then it's on to the grout mix, the grout.
