ceramic faux wood tile as backsplash


This may have been asked before, but do you need to use cement board for this project? I've heard yes and no. Granted it would be way easier without the board. If it can be done without the board, would there be any issues with weight of the tile and thinset hanging on the wall? It will be for the kitchen. Thanks

Tile will stick better to cement board.
There is no issue with the weight, just need a perfectly flat wall for long tile like that.

Cement board is not necessary in this case. Use modified thinset. Scuff any previous paint or remove any previous wallpaper and old adhesive residue.

Of course cement board would offer an improved "bite" for the thinset but considering the cost and the hassle the gain just isn't there.

Can't believe the site just lost all of my entry answering the above.
I'm not going to type it again.
