How To: Install a glass tile backspash

Install a glass tile backspash

This video is to show how to install a glass tile backsplash. Because installing glass is a little different then installing ceramic, knowing what to do is important. Use painter's tape to protect your surroundings wherever you are installing your glass and use only a white thin set mortar recommended from the glass manufacturer to adhere your tiles. Since the glass is see through, unlike ceramic tiles, you need to make sure there is no discoloration and smooth out the ridges on the mortar for a nice professional look. Depending on how big the project, since backsplashes can be quite quick, you may want to put enough mortar on for the whole project. Work quickly so the mortar doesn't set and let it be overnight to make sure it's thoroughly set. Now you have a beautiful home made backsplash you did yourself.
