Tiling is a great way to enhance the look of your kitchen.

It immediately changes the look of your kitchen and converts it into something more premium in design and aesthetics.

Depending on the color you choose you can make your kitchen look larger in size especially by installing the light color versions especially colors like:

  • White
  • Beige
  • And similar picks

If you used to work in the dark color painted walls in your kitchen, than installing white color tiles in the entire kitchen wall will look extra spacious.

In this post we’ll talk about installing tile on your entire kitchen wall and if it’s even a good idea to do so because many people if they made a decision to install the tiles will do half the wall.

Let’s get started!

Tile Entire Kitchen Wall

The benefit of tiling the entire kitchen wall depends on how your activities happen inside your kitchen.

Some people claim that they’re getting darker burnt spots or oily spots on their side walls.

If you’re experiencing the same thing that it’s for sure recommended to install the tiles as soon as you get a chance to do so to prevent the wall further worsening in condition.

Can You Tile Over Drywall In Kitchen?

You can tile over a drywall as long as your wall is smooth and straight. Otherwise, you’ll first need to make it smooth using tools like:

Goldblatt G25638 Vortex Drywall Sander
Dap 10308 4-Pound Interior Plaster of Paris
Warner 3″ ProGrip Full Flex Putty Knife, 90133
QEP 6 in. x 2 in. Comfort Grip Flat Margin

What If Only Half The Wall Is Getting Affected?

If you’re seeing that only half the wall is getting affected by:

  • Burning spots OR
  • Oily spots

Than measure the wall from the ground to the spots. Make sure you add an extra 3-6 inches in the calculation and based on that, order the tiles and start the process.

This is the surefire way to get the best possible results at a minimal cost and keeping the project successful for years to come.

How Much Time It Takes?

It all boils down to the size of your kitchen and whether you want a full coverage or half.

1.      For Full Coverage

Typically it takes one day or about 8 hours to fully cover the entire wall with tiles

2.      Half Coverage

It takes about 5 hours to cover the half the kitchen wall.

All this time includes cutting the tiles for edges, grouting and making a sticking solution like tile bond or the one made with mixing cement with water.

Wrapping It Up

Tiling the entire kitchen wall is a great way to enhance not only the look but to ease the cleaning process as well. All the accumulated grease and debris that used to stick on your wall directly which is surely hard to clean, now with the help of the tiles all the oily spots are easy to clean especially when you use some sort of detergent etc.

And the best part about cleaning the tiles vs the wall is that when you end up cleaning the wall it’ll not look as shiny and as great as it was at first, but cleaning the tile will give you a result that you’ll never forget.
