– Glue the credence to the wall of the kitchen
1. Drawing the credence plan on the wall
Before you put your credence, you must determine its exact location on the wall of the kitchen. For this, you will proceed as follows:
Using a bricklayer's rule and a square, draw a pencil with the contours of your future credence on the kitchen wall.
Measure the exact dimensions of the surface thus drawn, then note on a notebook its height and length.
Be precise in the drawing of the plan to the wall, because it conditions the final aesthetic rendering of your credence.
2. Cut the credence to the desired height
Thanks to the plan you have drawn, you have the exact dimensions of the surface to be covered. Now you have to cut out the tiles from your kitchen credenza. Some tips:
The plastic credenza is easily cut at the end. Use a ruler to get regular edges.
Stainless steel or glass credenzaes require professional cutting. The ideal would be to cut your tiles directly in store. You will avoid many disappointments!
3. Preparing the surface of the kitchen wall
The secret of a well-placed kitchen credenza lies in the preparation of the wall:
Using a spirit level, make sure the wall is perfectly even.If this is not the case, you will need a surface coating to level all irregularities. Do not neglect this step, on pain of being disappointed with the final result!
When the wall is dry and perfectly smooth, clean it with a clean cloth to remove all surface dust.
4. Lay the credence without glue
Before sticking your kitchen splashback on the wall, it is safer to do a blank pose. This is to put the tiles on the wall, but without sticking! This tip will allow you to check that the credence fits perfectly on the contours of the plan drawn on the wall. If this is not the case, do not hesitate to slightly correct your cut, so that each tile fits perfectly in the planned location.Be patient and meticulous, this is the key to success!
5. Glue the credence to the kitchen wall
Your kitchen splashback can now be glued to the wall:
Using a punch, make small holes on the entire surface to be glued. This will guarantee a better penetration of the glue into the wall bracket.
Spread the glue on the wall with a spatula.
Glue each tile, which you will place firmly on the wall.
Let it dry overnight.
In the morning, admire the result of your work! Who said it was difficult to put a credenza in his kitchen?
