What kind of mosaic tile backsplash should I choose to buy, ceramic mosaic tile backsplash, glass tile backsplash or metal tile backsplash, how to install, what material do I need to apply, can I do it myself or I need to find a professional guy to help me? a lot of people meet this problem when they start the home improvement project, but I want to tell them, there is an easy mosaic tile backsplash way, it is the peel and stick mosaic backsplash tiles.
Peel and stick tile is made of PET paper with PU glue, it is light-weight and easy to handle, it is suitable for boys and girls to decor their home backsplash, even small kids can install the backsplash tiles.
Cleaning the backsplash wall: First, wash the surface with a powerful grease-remover such as TSP(Tri-sodium phosphate). make sure you allow enough time for the surface to dry properly.
Guidline：Using a level or chalk line, trace a guideline to ensure perfect alignment using a mosaic to make the height. if you are facing an uneven counter, make the height of your guideline on the lowest side of the counter.
Measuring and Cutting: Using a simple utility knife(boxer cutter) and a ruler, you will be able to trim and shape your mosaic at will should you come across electrical outlets or other irregularities during the installation. Measure and mark your peel and stick tile and lay it on a cutting mat or cutting board to cut off the unwanted portion.
Remove the tabs of the first mosaic tile backsplash: for all jagged edge models, you must cut off the overlapping tabs of the first peel and stick tile in order to get a straight edge to begin the installation. This will allow you to start in a corner, against a cabinet or get a straight edge end.
Peel: Simply folder back half of the protective paper in the back without touching the adhesive portion with your finger.
Stick: Align the adhesive portion with your guideline and apply a light pressure. this will allow you to validate the posting of your peel and stick tile. Once you are satisfied with its placement and alignment, you may remove the rest of the protective paper and apply a firm pressure across the entire surface.
Overlapping: Once you have successfully installed the first peel and stick tile, you may continue the process making sure you overlap the grout lines as you go. This will result in a continuous and even layout of the entire project.
