Glass mosaic tile backsplash is one of the most popular backsplash options at the market right now. The beauty of the mosaic look in the backsplash makes it stand out in a kitchen space. However, installing glass mosaic backsplash is not just about how the glass can be installed to the wall with glue, but this is also about how to make mosaic look with the grout. So, this project can be tricky if you consider doing it yourself. This is not a difficult project, but it is just a tricky one. You need to think and work harder to create a perfect mosaic design in the glass tiles.
Making mosaic grout on glass tile is actually easy as long as you keep yourself on track. You can use epoxy grout for installing the glass tile backsplash. This kind of grout can seal the glass tiles well so that you do not need to seal the tiles at the end of the installation. The grout can be mixed in a higher amount that you need. It means that you should add more grout than the amount of grout needed for your project.
This is because grout is easy to cure and you surely do not want to end up in a partially finished backsplash. Glass mosaic tile backsplash will look great when it is well installed using the right amount of grout. Make the grout mixture similar to peanut butter when mixing it. Let it stir for 10 minutes and apply it using a dust mask and rub rubber gloves.
Applying the grout is the most important part in this project. You should apply a handful of grout to the spaces between the glass tiles and mash it. Rub the grout in a circular motion and keep doing this until every crack in the tiles can be well filled. After filling every crack, let the grout dries for about five or ten minutes before rubbing it with sponge dipped into clear water.
This can be helpful for removing any excess grout during the installation. You can repeat applying the grout in every five minutes of first and the next installation. Make sure to rub the grout once you finish filling the cracks. Rub every glass tile to clean any grout on the surface so that they will end up in a clean look. Glass mosaic tile backsplash can be easily installed using these simple steps and then you will have a perfect mosaic tile backsplash in your home.
