How to install mosaic tile backsplash?

No matter what type of material is, the installation of a mosaic tile backsplash offers a great way to add visual interest to a room. But how to do it? Mosaic tiles usually come with a mesh back that holds the tiles together and provides an easy installation. Techniques for installing mosaic tile sheets are nearly identical to classic ceramic or porcelain tiles. Before the installation process, you will need some equipment:

  • Thin-set mortar
  • Notched trowel
  • Bucket and mixing stick
  • Grout and grout float
  • Tile spacers
  • Rubber mallet
  • Utility knife
  • Sponge and clean water
  • Safety goggles and gloves
  • Mosaic tiles

Once you have been providing these types of equipment, it is time to prepare the installation area. As with any other installation, the application surface must be clean and smooth. Mosaic tiles can be applied on a cement board, plywood, drywall, or directly against wall studs.

After the preparation of the wall space, now you need to plan the layout of your tiles. Generally starting from the center is the best way to install the tiles but you can start from the top or bottom according to the pattern of your tiles. Once you plan the layout, cut the necessary tiles. You need to use proper cutting tools according to your tile material.


Mix the tin-set mortar, apply a thin layer, and spread it with a notched trowel. Starting from the center ( or any other area according to your layout ) press each tile into the thin-set mortar. Work in small sections to avoid the thin-set drying before you finish laying the tiles. Repeat this step until cover the backsplash with tiles and allow the thin-set mortar to dry completely, typically overnight.

Prepare the grout according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Spread it with a grout float by using diagonal movements and fill the gaps between the tiles. After 10 minutes, remove the haze with a damp sponge. Once the grout dries, buff the tiles with a clean, dry cloth to remove any residue.

How to cut mosaic backsplash tile?

Different cutting tools are needed for each material! A manual tile cutter is sufficient if you are utilizing porcelain or ceramic tiles for classifying purposes. Nippers or other specialist tools are frequently needed for the glass or metal tiles. A wet saw with a diamond blade is necessary to cut natural stone tiles such as marble or granite, to prevent chipping or cracking.

Always use a pencil or sharpie to properly define your cut lines before beginning the cutting procedure. Don’t forget to wear safety goggles and gloves to protect yourself from dust and flying debris. To understand the procedure, you can also practice on more tiles!
