How to I adjust for a difference in thickness between 1/4" accent tiles and my thicker field tiles
If your surrounding field tiles or backsplash granite are a lot thicker and you want your accent tile to be flush with it,  you can simply screw or nail a 1/8" or 1/4"  tileboard to your wall and mount the mural tiles on that.
If you are putting a border around your mural, most borders are much higher than tile and will therefore make a automatic transition between differing tile depths and types. When you lay out you tiles first on a flat surface, you can plan for this

Cleaning
Clean with anything like Windex or soap and water

Border Tiles
Tile wall murals looks best with a border around them. The border also creates a transition zone between different materials. You can either match you border to the field tile you are using for the rest of your backsplash, or use one of our metal finish borders that matches you other metal colors in your kitchen , such as cabinet hardware or appliances

SAMPLE TILE If you want to see and feel the tile before you order a whole mural. Simply buy a single accent tile from that mural. We will get it out in a few days and you can return it later for a refund


Linda's Tips on how to pick the right size and shape backsplash  mural for your space

Shape: The mural should be the same shape and orientation as your space. If your space is long and thin, you mural should be long and thin  If your space is vertically oriented your mural should be the same orientation. Don't put a  horizontal mural into a vertically oriented space.

The picture to the left demonstrates this. The overall shape of the space and the mural  is long and thin so it looks balanced and beautiful
Be sure and remember to allow for the size of your grout line

How to pick a size for your mural backsplash
The ideal size of the mural 
is da Vinci proportions which means  the mural should take up four fifths of the space.  With murals you can never be too big,  it does not look good if  the mural is too small. Remember to keep your mural 6" above your burners.

 To help with sizing, you can cut out a piece of paper to the size you think the mural should be, tape it to the wall, then stand back and see if you like the ways it fits the space. You can use blue painter's tape to simulate the border
