How to Tile Your Backsplash in No Time!


Creating a tile backsplash is a fun project that is easy to tackle, especially if you have a helper! 

Doing a backsplash in tile is a two day project simply because of the drying time required for the adhesive and the grout.  This is a perfect weekend project to add value to your kitchen and make it look great!

Materials Needed:

  • Wet saw
  • (Diamond-blade metal grinder if necessary)
  • Notched trowel
  • Grout float
  • Ceramic tiles
  • 1/4" spacers
  • Mastic adhesive
  • Drill with mixing attachment
  • Grout
  • Level
  • Safety glasses

Note:  These instructions are supplied for use with ceramic, ceramic glazed or porcelain glazed tiles.  Some adjustments may need to be made for using stone tile, especially in the methods used to cut the tiles.
