Q&A: Kitchen backsplash?

Question by Sweetie: Kitchen backsplash?
We are molding our kitchen and I’m not sure about our backsplash.
Do I apply the tile stright to the sheetrock? or do I need to cut the sheetrock out and replace it with a “dura bored” material?

(Right now the backsplash is only painted sheetrock/ bare wall.)

When we were doing our kitchen… we left a space behind the oven and placed a beautiful italian stone tile – it looked gorgeous. We applied it straight to the brick wall and have had no problems.

Q&A: Kitchen Design/Remodeling – Kitchen backsplash ideas?

Question by Maloney: Kitchen Design/Remodeling – Kitchen backsplash ideas?
Hi, we are having our kitchen remodeded and I want a backsplash on the wall behind the cooktop. The area is about 84×18 in. Our contractor insists that if I want the wall tiles there, I must have them on all the other wall spaces in the kitchen where there is no cabintery. That will not only be too expensive, but also I dont want that much color in the kitchen(I ve chosen a bright wall tile). Please tell me if I am doing something totally wrong by getting the wall tiles only behind the cooktop

It seems that your contractor does not understand your request. You only need tiles exactly where you want them and no where else. Contractors invent ways to take advantage of customers by telling them exactly what your contractor told you figuring that you would agree with him and go along with what ever he wanted instead of what you want your kitchen to look like. I know because until I retired I was a contractor for many years and to this day I only did what my customer wanted and not what I could do to take advantage of them.

It is your home, your kitchen, and your money paying for this remodeling project. Get it thew way you want or else.

Good luck,

Question by NorN: Remodeling Home. Light improvements, painting, backsplash, hardwood floors contractor?
I have a one story house(no basement) that I need to have painted. I bought it new 8 years ago and well with two boys…. need i say more. lol. I simply need someone to paint the inside of the house. Living room, 3 bedrooms, small kitchen, 2 bath etc. I live in Georgia near Atlanta. I also wanted to get some bad outlets replaced,a bathroom fan replaced, hardwood floors put in, and a backsplash installed.

How do I look up contractors for this? Does Lowes or Home Depot provide these services? How much would it cost?
