Adding Very Thin Glass Mosaic Tile Backsplash
Glass mosaic tile backsplash offer a surface that is impervious to stains and water damage, making it a great choice for a tile. Glass tiles capture and reflect light differently from other types of tiles. They create an eye-catching tile that looks almost as if the tiles are moving.
Place a tarpaulin over the worktop to protect it from damage during tile installation. Remove the existing tile, wallpaper or laminate from the surface of the existing tile. Grind high spots on existing tiles with 100 grit paper. Remove window aprons on windows located in the area of tile with claw end of a hammer. The apron is trim piece that sits under the windowsill. Hold a thin glass mosaic tile backsplash close to the wall next to the window. Place an undercut saw on top of the plate. Move the saw up and down to cut through the windowsill to make room for the tile to sit behind the threshold rather than trying to notch thin glass plates to fit around the threshold.
Turn off electric power and remote containers and light switch covers. Remove the screws that hold the container and switch in the box. Wrap exposed wires with black electric tape. Place a level vertically below the open end of the cabinets where no cabinets lie but tiles continue. Spread grout over the glass mosaic tile backsplash with a rubber grout float, forcing grout into the grooves between the plates. Wipe the surface with a damp sponge to remove sealant from the surface of glass plates. Allow grout to dry for 72 hours before sealing it with grout sealer.
