Updated on September 9, 2016

Making Your Kitchen Look New Again

Home improvement is something all home owners would like to do; unfortunately many of them won’t be able to do so due to the high costs. It’s a great feeling to be able to renovate your kitchen the way you want it.

When we buy a house we don’t usually get the chance to find all the features that we like in this house. But we don’t have any choice because there’s no way we would be able to find the perfect home. Nevertheless, if money is not an issue you can always choose to upgrade this house to have the look and feature that you want.

A house’s kitchen is one part of a home where most home owners usually upgrade. They’ll even upgrade a brand new house’s kitchen to give it the look they want. The reason is because it’s less expensive to do and it’s where their guests will most likely have the chance to see.

That’s the reason why I’m going to share with you how to install metal tiles on your kitchen's backsplash.

Why choosing metal tiles?

Metal tiles can be the best tiles for your kitchen and there are several reasons for this claim.

With metal tiles your kitchen will be able to handle its day to day usage without any problem. Remember our kitchens are being used almost every day, it does make sense that they’re built with materials of good quality.

Those tiles also come in different types and even in different colors to choose from. You don’t have to force yourself to buy a color that you don’t like.

Additionally, there are different cutting edge tiles as well. In my opinion, metal tile for kitchen backsplashes are made with everyone’s preferences in mind, which makes it easier for us to find the ones we like.

Installation of metal tiles for kitchen backsplashes

Installing metal tiles in a kitchen backsplash is not a difficult job to get done. If you’re someone who likes to tackle your project on your own, after watching a couple of videos on YouTube you should be on your way to install your metal tiles. It’s pretty easy to do and doesn’t require any special education.

In order to install metal tiles to your backsplash you’ll have to estimate the amount of tiles or the size of the tiles you’ll need for the job. It’s also a must that you measure the square footage of the backsplash that you’re going to cover with your tiles.

These are the very first things you’ll have to do. Once you’ve got these out of the way you’ll have a better idea as of how many tiles you’ll need to undergo with this beautiful project.

You'll need to use a course-grit sanding sponge to rough up the surface to enable the mastic to adhere onto the surface. Wipe off the debris and dust before applying the mastic.

Once your backplash area has been covered with the mastic the next step is pretty simple. You then will start mounting your tiles over the mastic before it start getting dry. Keep in mind that you may have to cut some of your tiles to adjust them.

However, you don’t have to do this yourself because it won’t cost you too much to get your kitchen backsplash done. $800 to $1000 should be able to buy your tiles and pay for installation. I don’t think this is much to pay to get your kitchen lighten up if you have the fund.

Final words

Upgrading your kitchen backsplash can make your kitchen look its best, but you’ll need to pick the right backsplash cover to do so.

Before you start with your project take a few moments to research so that you can have a better idea as of how you want your backsplash to look. In doing so you’ll give yourself a greater chance of achieving what you would want to achieve.

Good luck with your project and I hope the result exceeds your expectation!
