More than any other room, kitchen updates and remodeling projects are most often the most expensive and time consuming. But in just a few days you can transform your kitchen with a brand new, glass-tile backsplash. Hide from the heat wave, enjoy the air-conditioning and end the weekend with a beautiful backsplash at the same time. You’ll be amazed at how easy this project is, too.


For this particular project, designer Erinn Valencich chose opaque glass tiles, but you can choose any kind of glass tile you want. After prepping the walls and doing a dry layout to double-check tile positioning, you’re ready for the easy-breezy installation process. My favorite part of this project is the freedom you have to choose your tilework and design. Create a horizontal stacked bond design like Erinn, or try a horizontal running bond pattern.

You can find the complete materials list and step-by-step instructions to this backsplash project at HGTV.com. Plus, get additional tips with this installing a glass tile backsplash video.

Come back afterwards, and let us know how your high-end, DIY backsplash turned out.

    I like the appearance of the irredescent look, but for me I'd be more inclined to use this approach in a bathroom and or intangent with another attribute today anyways.

    i agree with the above. i like the idea of it but it does look like it would be better in a bathroom vs a kitchen

    It’s in fact very complicated in this busy life
    to listen news on TV, thus I just use internet for that reason,
    and get the newest news.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However just
    imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this
    blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.

    Very good blog!

    Where can I find a "Good" book or step by step video on how to put up a backsplash that is offset on the ends and has glass and stone that will need to be cut. Also, there are two electrical recepticles to cut out? I purchased the materials/unsanded grout, the adhesive, a glass time cutter and nipper for the stone. Thank You

  7. The vaporizers are of range mostly starting from $39. ‘ Removable See-Thru Vape Window’
    lets you begin to see the vapor forming. They are an excellent
    source of minerals, fibers and vitamins so there is certainly no reason you should be avoiding them.

  8. I’m gone to convey my little brother, that he should also pay
    a visit this website on regular basis to take updated from
    latest news.

  9. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and
    she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!
