How to Install a Backsplash in a Kitchen
Travertine tile assembled in a diagonal pattern with a decorative inlay creates a beautiful kitchen backsplash.
Clean the wall where the backsplash is to be installed.
Lay out a small section of brick to achieve desired pattern.
Use a wooden dowel vertically and horizontally as a spacer to get the grout lines.
Apply high strength construction adhesive to brick, and then place the brick on wall in the desired location.
Install one layer at a time until the wall is full.
Make any cuts of the brick tile with a tile saw. Get the look of aged brick by roughing up the edges of the tiles with the edge of a tile saw.
When all the brick is secured to the wall and given plenty of time to set, (about a day) mix the grout and apply to spaces between the bricks using a trowel. When the grout is dry, apply sealant.
