Kitchens are always a favorite space of mine — so many ways to add character and reflect your style in the heart of your home. Our guest today had already made some great updates to her kitchen, but the affordable DIY marble countertops she added really made the whole kitchen shine:

White Kitchen Mini-Makeover with Tiled DIY Marble Countertops + Copper Light Fixture

The latest to recieve the most attention was our kitchen. This kitchen has seen two different remodeling stages. The first being when we moved in. With the help of family and friends, we tore down a small wall, painted cabinets, added cabinet trim, installed new cabinets.

Tools Needed for Laminate Counter top

Measure and cut each tile.

Lay out your pattern and spacing ahead of time to make sure it will fit and you are happy with the pattern.

Using your trowel apply the mortar and begin laying your tile. Spacers were not needed for these tiles because they had angled edges that allowed for 1/16 inch spacing.

Follow instructions from the manufacturer and mix your mortar.

Make sure to follow specified wait times

Apply one to two coats of sealer so that it will protect the tiles during the grout process (again, allowing for proper wait time).
