"Yesterday we picked up the tiles we ordered from you and they are absolutely perfect for our fireplace hearth; I couldn't be more pleased. We enjoyed doing business with you over the phone, and will definitely do business with you again on any future tile jobs."

Tile Techniques: Backsplash Options

Bullnose Cap Cove
a. Bullnose b. Cap c. Cove

  1. A wall must be flat and in sound condition when setting backsplash tiles directly on it. With this method, standard bullnose tiles work best.

  2. To mimic the look of a traditional mortar-bed installation, use plywood or cement backerboard to build up the backsplash. V-cap tiles along the top edge finish the look.

  3. To make cleanup a snap, use cove tiles in the corner. This creates a more rounded look in between your countertop and backsplash.
