How to install a glass subway tile backsplash?

Before the installation process, first, you need to prepare the area. Clean the wall surface and make sure that there is no bump. If there is any, you can use sandpaper to flatten the wall. Once you clean the wall space, remove the dust with a soft cloth.

The second is to get a cardboard of the same size as the backsplash area or it could be any material which can be able to take proportionate weight of the tiles. You can place tiles here to check out how they fit. This is also good because you will know how many have to be cut for the outside/corner edge tiles. What else you can do is draft an electric layout on the cardboard and then arrange the tiles based on the scheme. If a few tiles need to be cut, a simple glass tile will be enough.


Now after you cut the tiles, it is time to spread the adhesive or mortar. Then press the tiles on the mortar. In order to make sure that the gaps are of equal size use the spacers. After that is completed and the mortar is totally cured, you can remove the spacers. The next task is to fill the spaces using a grout float. When you are embedding the grout just cross the float at 45 degrees and keep an eye that the grout is filling the gaps. Begin wiping away the cured grout with a sponge before it completely dries. Let the grout dry, and use a soft cloth to wipe the surfaces and remove haze.

The last thing on the to-do list is the caulking of the countertop edge and the backsplash. Caulking is one of the easiest tasks that can be done using simple a caulk gun. To complete the process, you must ensure that water or liquid dirt does not seep through the joints, which can cause unforeseen long-term damage to your plaster.
