How to Remove a Tile Backsplash

Remove Backspalsh

If you tried to update your kitchen with a non-tin tile backsplash in the wrong color or material, the first thing you want to do when going to remove it is to protect your countertops, cabinets and sink area with a drop cloth or thick paper. The next step is to use a little elbow grease. Grab a hammer and a screwdriver and position the screwdriver flat against the wall with the tip resting on the top tile. Tap the hammer until the screwdriver is wedged between the tile and the wall and start prying it off. How much caulk and adhesive you used to attach it depends if it’ll come off easily or be a struggle - some tiles may even need to be broken into pieces. The drywall behind the backsplash will look pretty rough around the edges after you start ripping tiles off, but don’t worry about if you just plan on covering it up again anyway. If you can deal with it looking worse before it looks better, you’re ready to purchase some beautiful tin tiles as a replacement.

Ceilings Are Even Easier
