Welcome Casey.
I’ve never been a fan of the “stay put by the paper tape” corner beads. In some areas they’re fine, but for me, in an area like that, where it’s subject to all sorts of bumping; I’d...

My wife and I stayed at a B&B and being the tile snob you’ve all made me into; I had to share this. The place was immaculately kept and we had a fun time. The hosts have been fixing the place up...

Hi Ken. I used something very similar on an accent wall in the bedroom. Looks very nice.
That being said, I’d never go with it in a kitchen, especially as a backsplash. By its very nature,...

Hi Jeff. Welcome to the forum.
Caulking in a shower should be silicone based as the latex based ones tend to soften and get moldy easily. Even the silicone caulks attract organic bits and get get...

I do not. I’m too OCD to work with others. All kidding aside; the best tiling in a poor design will leave you unhappy for years. A good designer will nag the crap out of you to get to the core of...

Be careful Fred. Just because someone says “sure, go ahead and do it that way”; it doesn’t relieve you of responsibility of doing it up to a certain standard. Once you take money for work, it makes...

What Dan said. I did it with 2 brackets though. No problems at all with the glass or the seal over the past 3 years. There will be some “ick” with silicone over time. It tends to hang on to stuff...

My beef with a doorless shower, where the glass doesn’t go to the ceiling is that it sets up an air convection current. The warm air goes up the top to the ceiling (especially when the vent fan...

I’d go with #3. It’s easier to pull out the board, cut the new one and screw it down. Done and I’d know it’s solid. Once you start patching and adding blocking, it takes time and effort and you...
