Backerboard for Wall Tile ???
New house. Kitchen drywall is up and painted. Wife has decided on tile for the backsplash. Need your opinions. I think I need backer board. Used 1/4″ Hardibacker on the floors. Wife thinks it’s going to be too think — worried about what the “edges” are going to look like, and I don’t know how bullnose works on something like this. Can I get something thinner? Adhesion is my biggest concern. What’s the best thinset or mastic to use to attach the backerboard? The tile?
Also what do you do about the joint at the coutertop (formica) — just grout it? Color-matched caulk?
Any ideas or suggestions appreciated.
