Tile Backsplash??

Has anyone installed a tile back splash around the sink in the bathroom area? I have some glass tile pieces that I'd like to install a 5 inch back splash around the sink, but not sure what type of adhesive/mortar to use.

Has anyone tackled that project?

Backsplash

We used the thin stick on smart tiles.If I were going to use regular tile I would use liquid nails to stick tiles.

Is 'thin stick' an adhesive? Not sure what smart tiles are. Do you have pictures? The glass tiles that I have are only 3/4" each and are very similar to what they call "Subway tiles" except smaller; so I don't think I would use liquid nails unless I absolutely had to.

You could use regular quick set on those tiles then if there that small.Ours are real thin self stick pieces that look like tile.buy them at Home Depot.Dont have to worry about any cracking due to vibration.

Yeah AA, I finally found that pic. It was Rob Fla who did it with the tile sheets. Those are peel and stick. Wish mine was going to be that easy. I'm going to try to find the quick set, and if that fails, I may go with the liquid nails. It has to be grouted too.

I have done many bathtub surrounds and kitchen backsplashes. I have always used the Acryl Pro adhesive sold by Home Depot. You will have to buy the appropriate sized v-notch trowel as recommended on the container. It is very easy to use and I have never had any tile fall off of any shower or bathtub surround. As far as grout, you will probably want to use a non-sanded grout because your grout lines will be very narrow. Home Depot does sell another product called Omni Grip that says it can be used for non porous surfaces. I've never had the need to try it but since there is some possible vibrations and movement while traveling, it may be a superior product to use, but if it was me, I would stick with the Acryl Pro, but only because it is a product I have used for years.
