How Cutting Your marble tiles?

Measure the top of your cabinets and purchase your marble tiles slabs. Use a measuring tape to get the dimensions of the cabinet tops to determine how much marble tiles you need. Be sure to account for the sink opening when ordering pre-cut marble tiles so that it comes with a space for your sink. Always choose marble tiles with unpolished edges to ensure that there are seams between the slabs.

Choose between rounded, curved, and square edges for the outer edges of your marble tiles. Use 1.25 inch (3.2 cm) slabs for the best results. Select a pattern and color that fits with your space. Add an extra 1⁄2 to 1 inch (1.3 to 2.5 cm) to your dimensions to account for overhang. Remove the marble tiles from the packaging and dry-fit it to the tiles.

marble tiles weighs 25 pounds (11 kg) per square foot, so have at least one person help you move the slabs to be safe. If you’re using multiple marble tiles slabs, make sure that each one fits tightly against the other. If you removed your kitchen sink when removing your old marble tiles, lower it into place after dry-fitting your marble tiles to make sure that it fits. If your sink is still installed, that’s fine too.

Mark cutlines onto the top and bottom of the marble tiles to shape it to the tiles. Even with pre-cut marble tiles, you might have to make some adjustments to their size. Take note of any portions of the marble tiles that need to be removed or cut to fit the tiles and mark them off on the top and bottom with a straight edge and pencil.

Start by placing your straight edge onto the top and draw a line to mark the region to be removed. Afterward, turn the marble tiles over and mark a line on the bottom parallel to the top one. Now, connect each line via lines on the sides. Make sure that there are 4 lines total—the top, bottom, and 2 side lines.

Choose a stopping point, either directly below your cabinets or at an arbitrary point on the wall.

Make sure that you have enough tiles to fill the measured space, as well as a few extras for precaution. Use a level and straight edge to mark your stopping point along the wall. Stick your tiles to the wall. Peel the backing off the tiles, and stick them to your desired location. Always start from the bottom center of the wall and work your way out.

Firmly press the tiles each time you stick them to the wall, to make sure they are firmly adhered. Hold a straight edge or level to the sides of your tile as your press, to make sure that they don’t shift out of alignment. Finish attaching tiles. Work your way across the wall, until the entirety of your desired space is filled up. Cut any pieces to fit outlet holes or edges and corners before you attach them to the wall.
