It is always important for you to check the dependability of the surface where you have decided to install tiles. Backer board is considered more reliable than backsplash while installing the tile. Regular drywall and regular floor are preferable to many. First of all you have to measure the place in terms of height and width. The area has to be sufficiently cleaned too.
It is important to plan the layout with the help of the guidance of a tile-installation expert. You must use a branded type of adhesive to stick the tiles. The use of tile cutter alone is recommended to cut the tiles to enable them to fit into the right areas. When the tiles are nicely installed into the areas you should clean off any excessive adhesive. Allow the tiles to dry at least for 24 hours. Installation of tiles done with precision is bound to last long.
