How do you adjust the electrical plugs to meet the new wall face?
Is cement board alone enough, when installing porcelain tiles to an outdoor countertop cupboard, or do we need a membrane too?
The sink will have to be removed to make it look good. Not a very difficult job. You can do it Sheryl!
By all means. I've done it several times. You just have to make sure that the formica is still bonded well by tapping with a quarter. You will have to put up with a slightly higher top and where the oven sits may be too close.
I have found that a carbide jigsaw blade is excellent for cutting hardibacker. I assume it will work just as well with other tile backer. Much less expensive than the carbide rotary bits which have a tendency to break.
Did anyone notice the old base cabinets under the sink? Thought they might have upgraded like the ones to the left of sink. Looks simple enough to do. Thanks Ron.
What do you have to do different is when using granite tiles in lieu of ceramic tile?
I don't care for grout lines as the eventually get skanky. Have you seen the newer Formica choices? No grout lines, way cheaper and easier to install. Now that's what I'M talkin about!
No, there are no short cuts.
Sure, go ahead with it Bro. Let us know how it turns out.
I myself don't care for tiles in the kitchen sink...
