Tackle Tricky Areas
Windows and Openings:
If a window or opening is in the center or at the end of a wall, be sure to dry-fit the tile before installation so you know how it will look once it's complete. This will ensure the grout joints are lined up consistently.
Outlets and Wall Faucets:
When installing the glass around outlets and wall faucets or fixtures, make sure to remove all finish plates and install the glass and grout before replacing them. Cut the mosaic sheets as close as possible around the fixtures so the job looks perfect when the finish plates are replaced.
These are designed to help establish a unique, custom look while helping complete the backsplash. The kit comes with six different-sized liners designed to make it so that you never have to cut actual glass and to ensure a perfect finish to every job no matter how challenging the area.
If the backsplash has exact linear dimensions (whole number) like eight, nine or 10 feet, for example, use the 12-inch standard-size liners to finish the installation. To install the liners, peel the protective film from the back and stick the liner onto the wall, just like the mosaics.
If the linear measurement is not a whole number, such as 9-3/4" or 11-1/2", the multi-sized liners should be used and there are two options to choose from:
1. Use the 12-inch standard-size liners to cover the larger areas, starting from the center and working out to the corners using the smaller sizes to finish the edges.
2. Get creative and use the smaller liners in the center of the backsplash to create a decorative element in the middle and use the 12-inch standard-size liners to complete the installation toward the outer edges.
With either option, always lay out the liners on the countertop, making sure to use the correct-size liners to finish the installation properly. Don't forget to leave a space between the liners equal to the grout joints of the mosaics so they match once grouted. Use the spacers provided in the kit for consistent spacing between the liner pieces.
