Hey everybody, I'm a new homeowner and I'm working on increasing the style and value of my home. I have found a gorgeous backsplash tiling that I want to put in my kitchen:
I've never done tiling before, and my home is wall-to-wall plaster. And it is swirled. My question is do I have to remove the plaster and re-board, or can I simply apply a tile cement over the plaster I have? Do I need to sand it smooth, or are the grooves useful for bonding as long as the cement is smooth? My walls look pretty much like this:
Thank you guys so much!
