    Not sure if this is the correct place for this question, but since a range hood is an appliance I guess it fits. So I am doing some remodeling and my contractor is installing my wall mount range hood first before the backsplash. I want the backsplash to go all the way up to the ceiling (see...

    Hello everyone. I am currently remodeling a kitchen in a rental unit of ours and the previous owners took the easy way out and installed outlets on the backsplash using conduit rather than embedding them into the wall itself. We want to give it a more finished look so I was hoping to use...

    I've had handymen fix it twice but all the water gathers up there and destroys the paint. Looking for an easy fix that will last 2-5 years. Tile won't fit there ( 1.5" space to the wall ). I could buy backsplash but don't want to deal with trying to cut tile. Thought of using wood but not...

    Looking for help picking a backsplash, it's something we have put off for two years now and it's time to get it done. I believe I've successfully attached some photos of the cabinets, countertops, and floors. The two surrounding rooms are a greenish/grey on the walls and the other is a greige...

    We are remolding our Kitchen and the last thing to do is the backsplash. When the outlets were installed they were not installed all at the same height. (All height measurements are from the top of the granite counter) On the left side of the sink there are 2 outlets 1 at 6 5/8" 1 at 6 1/4"...

    Hi! I wanna have metallic gold grout with black subway tiles for my backsplash. My problem is that I can't find any gold grout, except the one at Lowe's but that one has really bad reviews. Can some suggest me a good option or brand? Or should I add gold acrylic paint to the grout or use gold...

    The previous owners thought it would be a good idea to use a some scrap vinyl from the floor to create a backsplash and to cover the window sill and the area below it. I'd like to made this disappear, but it's not coming off without taking some drywall with it. I'm not up for replacing the...

    We are rounding the corner on a kitchen reno and really like this cement tile for a backsplash -- but it's unusually thick at 5/8", even for cement tile. Questions: Is this a bad idea? Any special instructions to be aware of? Also, any great ideas for finishing the edge of this tile? Most the...

    I am about to put up subway tile as a kitchen backsplash. The wall where the tile will be going is flat but there is some chipping paint, cracks and a few holes. I thought the best option would be to put up some hardiebacker and then tile over it. I am wondering if that is the best way to go or...

    Looking for some suggestions for how to go about updating our kitchen. Our house is about 100 years old, and the kitchen still has the original horsehair plaster. The previous owners re-did the kitchen about 25-30 years ago and glued large sheets of laminate from the counters to the cabinets...

    Hi, I'm trying to tile a kitchen counter and backsplash on an old house (in Hawaii) that uses single wall construction. That is, the walls are comprised of vertically layed tongue and groove redwood planks. The planks are about 6 inches wide and 1-1/4 inches thick. Do I need to use backerboard...

    Can I put a kitchen backsplash on a latex painted wall (sheet rock)? If so does the wall need to be scuff sanded first or a primer applied? I will be using a natural stone tile and natural stone mortar/thinset. Also any suggestions on grouting over metal tile inserts, how to keep them clean...

    I just finished stripping old wallpaper from a small powder room. Textured the walls and painted, changed out the old pedestal sink for a vanity cabinet and sink unit and hung a new light fixture. Now I'm ready to put up the new tile backsplash that I created. (The old pedestal sink was...

    I purchased 3x6 tumbled rough Travertine tile to do my kitchen backsplash with the intent of doing a Herringbone design. After purchase, my wife tells me she now prefers a diamond pattern :-) Easy enough for me to cut each of those 3x6 tiles into 3x3 but I'm wondering if so many cut lines on...

    Hi, I know the title is probably confusing. What I need to do is install 3x6 marble subway tiles as a backsplash. I'd like to install all tiles that don't need to be cut first, then get my measurements for the ones that need to be cut and install them at a later date. The reason for this is I do...
