A backsplash is an excellent addition to your kitchen, whether you’re renovating or building a new kitchen altogether. Glass kitchen backsplashes serve as a transition point that brings your countertop and wall surface together behind the sink or stove. A backsplash protects your wall from water, heat, cooking oil, and food. Installing glass kitchen backsplashes can be a hassle, especially when space constraints are involved. Ryan’s all-glass discusses the installation process and what you should expect.
Can You Install a Glass Kitchen Backsplash Yourself?
In short, you can install your glass kitchen backsplash on your own. However, it is one of the more difficult do-it-yourself glasswork jobs in your home. You need thin-set mortar, which requires mixing ability and takes time. You also need intermediate-level knowledge when it comes to tiling and glasswork because a glass kitchen backsplash requires both glass and special adhesives. Without the right materials and the correct execution, your glass kitchen backsplash will not look the way you want it to. The installation will also take significantly more time.
What Do You Need?
You need a variety of things when installing a glass kitchen backsplash by yourself. You will need the glass, the proper adhesives, mixing and troweling tools, as well as cutting and trimming tools. However, we do not recommend installing a glass kitchen backsplash on your own. A tile backsplash is easier to install on your own compared to a glass one. For a tile backsplash, you need thin-set mortars, tile cutters, adhesives, and the tiles themselves. Ryan’s all-glass recommends glass backsplashes because they are more aesthetically pleasing, longer lasting, and easier to clean.
Should I Hire a Professional?
It is tempting to find a do-it-yourself way to install a backsplash, but you could end up spending a lot of time and money for disappointing results. If you want a truly beautiful backsplash, consider a glass kitchen backsplash installed by experienced professionals. Hiring a professional glass company like Ryan’s all-glass ensures that your glass backsplash works out perfectly.
