We’re finally shopping for tile for behind our stove area so I wanted to revisit how our kitchen has evolved and the tile we chose for our back splash as well as review the steps we took to install the tile. Our kitchen when we bought the house was outdated…

Back Splash Tutorial:
2. We used a DAP Pro Caulk Tools to make an even/straight line, but a using your finger (and water) works just as well.
3. Prep area. Cover countertop or clean as you go to protect the counter top.
7. Apply pressure to ‘set’ tiles in place.
8. Let dry at least 2 days.
9. Seal tiles using Tile Guard. Wipe on with a rag. It dries within seconds.
Have a bucket of water handy.
11. Apply generous amount of Quartz Lock to the float using a putty knife.
14. Rinse sponge.
