An elegant tile backsplash need not be an expensive design element in your kitchen or bath. The homeowner can do it yourself easily by purchasing the art designed tiles offered by Fig Street Studio. Sold on the web for 9 years many families have purchased the tiles and applied them to the area behind the kitchen sink using supplies and additions found in all home stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot. Each store also sells the necessary glue and grout to mount the tiles and fill in the spaces between them. Using the white tile borders sold at those supply stores also allows the home owner to frame the art tiles. The studio will also do commission work and make a tile backsplash for the homeowner to match the kitchen or bath decor.
Mounting Tiles on Wall- Using a common Type 1 ceramic tile adhesive, clean the wall first with a good cleaner and be sure the wall is sound, not peeling or falling off. The tiles are 4.5 inches and light enough not to sag. For stronger adhesion use a non sagging mortar. Can use TSP ‘Trisoduim Phosphate’ solution and clean the wall then rinse thoroughly.
