How to Tile a Backsplash – Part 1: Tile Setting

Pretty Handy Girl Guide to TilingWe were contacted by Pretty Handy Girl (PHG) and asked (after reviewing samples online from everyone else) if we would like our product the Venato 3×6″ Subway Tile Honed to be on her blog.  It would be part of a major post on “How to Tile a Backsplash”

We had no control over how she presented the blog or what she had to say about the product.  I (David) sent her some photo’s of the lot prior to shipment (we often do that), she said “great, let’s do it”.  So we shipped the order freight on a pallet (all pretty much standard stuff).  Brittany (the owner of PHG) produced two great video’s and said some really, really nice things.  So nice it sounds like we made her say those things (we did not – promise).

Personally I love the video’s of showing the installation.  Really, really helpful.  So Brittany from all our customers a big thank you! (Video’s below).

She used the Carrara Venato 3×6″ Honed.  It shows you the product, before, during and after installation.  Trying not to be biased but the Carrara Venato collection is a knock out.  It is just a tremendous product not only for the end user but for us as salespeople.  The block selectors overseas are incredible.  No where on earth can you get that Calacatta style white base but with nice gray veining.  Not overly veined just enough.  We actually select it this way.  This is no accident, we specify the amount of veined tiles versus non-veined. (I am saying veining way too much).

So if you want the best and prices that are just incredible take a look online at our ever increasing range of premium marble field tiles, subway tiles and mosaics.  Thank you Pretty Handy Girl.

  1. David, wow, thanks for the post. I was definitely thrilled with the tiles and your top notch customer service! I’m glad you found the videos helpful. I hope they encourage more people that they can do it themselves ;-). Have a Happy New Year!

    • You made it look easy – I wish I was skilled like that. You have probably inadvertently made the lives of husbands out there more DIY hands on for 2014. As their wives will point out your children helping and can do it (which was so cute!). I loved the videos. Happy New Year to you and your Family!
