Flatness is essential to good tile work. When it comes to glass tile, flatness cannot be overstated. So how do you reconcile flat in a warped situation?
Glass tile is shiny and reflective. Flat work will reflect like a mirror. Well sort of, but it does and you know it when you see it. Not flat looks like a disco ball. Cool at the club; not so for your kitchen.
Problem is: most kitchen walls are not flat. Framing is not flat. Drywall seams, corner beads and outlet boxes (lots of those) all conspire with the dry wall finisher to leave the tile guy with an unflat situation. What to do?
Below are some photos of of some prep we did on a semi flat wall in preparation for glass tile tomorrow.
