For this backsplash, John chose a 4" x 4" porcelain tile. To add a little style, John decided to have the porcelain tile installed on a brick pattern. It was a beautiful cabin off the lake, with knotty pine walls. Since tile could not be applied directly to the pine due to future expansion from the wood, a quarter inch backerboard was installed and the tile was then applied. With the right choice of tile, John added warmth and certainly value to his home.
