Newbie here...

I haven't had a project in a long time, but now I need help with tiling a backsplash. My question, that I can't seem to find an answer for, is what do you do about the electrical outlets? I want to pull the plug-in-part out so it is flush with the tile. I guess I need to take one apart to see how it is installed. Any ideas? Thanks everyone.

Buy box extenders. Work like a charm. Can be found at HD and Lowes.

See first if they are the plastic boxes, some have a screw on the side that moves the box in and out
