To determine the amount of tile you need for your kitchen, backsplash calculates the wall space. If you only have one section to cover, simply multiply the width and height of the wall to get a square footage, the square footage determines how many tiles you'll need for the project. You should also include an additional 10 % of tile to cover small gaps and use as replacements for any pieces that may get damaged, there's a little more calculation involved when you have walls with disproportionate sections such as the one we're working on here. You have four separate areas to measure section: a is the space on the left side between the base of the cabinetry and countertop space B is the mid section of the wall.
Space C is the space on the right side between the base of the cabinetry and countertop and space D sits under the window. Multiply the width and height of each section then add the sums of each section to get the total square footage of tile needed to complete the project. Remember to include 10 % of the sum for spare tile pieces before you start on your kitchen backsplash project. There are a few things you should do: remove all appliances and cookware from the countertop. You may need to move the stove slightly away from the wall, so you can easily tile behind it. Disconnect the stove for added safety.
Another option is to remove the stove completely out of the work area. If your kitchen space allows follow your manufacturer's instructions for handling the appliance place, a layer of cardboard or heavy-duty craft paper over your countertop to protect it from debris, tape off the existing countertop, as well as the underside of the cabinets to protect those surfaces, also shut Off the power to the electrical outlets or light switches in your work area and remove any face plates, it's important that you inspect and repair your kitchen walls before you install your backsplash. Your wall should be clean and dry and capable of holding the tiles weight.
Be sure to patch any holes with speckling compound and sand the area lightly to a smooth surface to clean your walls, use mild soap, detergent, and water for rinsing. Allow the surface to dry before installing the backsplash painted walls can be down with sodium phosphate and sanded gently glossy surfaces are typically sanded and d glossed wipe the wall with a soft cloth to ensure a clean, dry surface check the wall behind the stove for any Oil or grease stains, these should be cleaned with a desegregate or primer. If you have tough stains, wipe the surface and allow it to completely dry before you permanently tile, your wall consider doing a trial run so you'll know what to expect a place.
