I'm having a hard time envisioning it on a whole kitchen backsplash. Thanks!BEST ANSWER: I do have this installed as a full backsplash (54 sf) but I haven't been able to figure out how to upload a photo here. It literally took my breath away when it was first installed, before we grouted (once I found it, it was the ONLY tile I would consider). After grout, I was initially very disappointed. The amount of grout really tempers the colors to almost match the cabinets (there's almost as much grout as there is tile, with the largest impact being on the metallic tiles (the raised pattern/embossing really catches grout and does not release -- and yes, I did use grout release before hand. Can't imagine how much grout would have been caught without it). Hindsight would have caused me to perhaps use a darker grout because I think what I really liked was the contrast between the tiles and the empty grout lines. If someone can give me instructions on how to upload a photo here, I would be more than happy to do so, but there is a photo of my kitchen on Houzz by Incredible Home Improvements, LLC entitled "Lindenhurst NY Kitchen Remodel".
Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.INSTALLATION
- To avoid affecting the color of the tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
- Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set.
- The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
- Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
- Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
- Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.
- Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints.
- It is recommended to use non-sanded grout.
- It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as our MP90
- Highly recommended to purchase the Glass & Stone Installation/Maintenance Kit - http://www.TileBar.com/collection/tiling-supplies/glass-stone-tile-maintenance-package.html
The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
