Amy Matthews: A tile back splash is a great way to add character and style to a kitchen. Here is a quick look at installing a simple back splash using subway tile. First, the tiles are laid out using a plumb line. This determines if any cuts need to be made. For easy and accurate cuts, rent a tile softer to just $60.00 a day.
Alright, so there you have it.
Spacers placed between tile and counter top help prevent cracking overtime. A thin set is applied to the tiles with a notched trowel. Staggering your tiles on the second row will give you a brick pattern appearance. Ceramic tiles can cost as little as $2.00 a square foot and it’s a great way to add our own unique touch to your kitchen.
