How to I adjust for a difference in
thickness between 1/4" accent tiles and my
thicker field tiles
If your surrounding field tiles or backsplash granite are a lot thicker and you
accent tile to be flush with it, you can simply screw or nail a 1/8"
or 1/4" tileboard to your wall and mount the mural
tiles on that.
If you are putting a border around your mural, most borders are much
higher than tile and will therefore make a automatic transition
between differing tile depths and types. When you lay out you tiles first on a
flat surface, you can plan for this
Clean with anything like Windex
or soap and water
SAMPLE TILE If you want to see and feel the tile before you order a whole mural. Simply buy a single accent tile from that mural. We will get it out in
a few days and you can return it later for a refund
Tile wall murals looks best with a border around them. The
border also creates a transition zone between different
materials. You can either match you border to the field tile
you are using for the rest of your backsplash, or use one of
our metal finish borders that matches you other metal colors
in your kitchen , such as cabinet hardware or appliances

How to pick a size for your mural backsplash
The ideal size of the mural is da Vinci proportions which means the mural should take up four fifths of the space. With murals you can never be too big, it does not look good if the mural is too small. Remember
to keep your mural 6" above your burners.
To help with sizing, you can cut out a piece of paper to the size you think the mural should be, tape it to the wall, then stand back and see if you like the ways it fits the space. You can use blue painter's tape to simulate the border
