Damaged cabinet due to backsplash removal

Hello - This is my first question here. I am replacing the countertop for a client. When we removed the 4" granite from the side of the tall wall oven cabinet it ruined it. For the new countertop there is no 4" back splash. We are using subway tiles from the countertop to the bottom of the wall cabinets. Here is the question: What do I do with the damaged side of the oven cabinet that is laminate particle board?

First off, you fess up to your client.

Talk to the client about extending the subway tiles onto the side of the cabinet. If agreeable, you can set the tiles on backerboard glued to the cabinet. If that's too thick, consider SimpleMat or Bondura membranes. A backsplash is one of the least challenging areas to set tile, so most anything will work there. Even construction adhesive (but check that it doesn't stain through the tiles first) or silicone adhesive caulk.

Got a pic?

I have seen some VERY creative faux finishes.

Oh and you'll have to fess up.

Thank You

I had discussed the possibility prior to starting project, thank goodness. So I think this is the only solution. The only thing with the faux painter is that it is laminated. Have you ever seem them work on laminate?

Deb,

When my mom (a part time artist) moved into her new home she had the cheapo builder grade formica counters with plain white textured backspash. The formica was printed to look like black marble but it hid the dirt well. She didn't want to jump into a kitchen remodel so soon, so she painted the BS to look EXACTLY like the formica. You had to touch the wall to tell the difference. A talented faux painter is worth their weight in aspirin.

cabinet makers do make a thin laminate for this reason.

Oven cabinet fix

If the cabinet has a traditional face frame design, there will be a 3/16" reveal at the front of the cabinet. You can buy a veneer sheet to match the cabinets and apply it...better than new. Oh yes and of course you have to fess up.

Good luck
