The 5 stages:- Trace the plan of the credenza on the wall - Cut the credenza to the desired height - Prepare the surface of the kitchen wall - Place the credenza without glue - Glue the credenza to the kitchen wall
1. Draw the plan of the credenza on the wallBefore installing your credenza, you must determine its exact location on the kitchen wall. To do this, you will proceed as follows: * Using a mason's ruler and a square, trace in pencil the contours of your future credenza on the kitchen wall. * Measure the exact dimensions of the surface thus traced, then note on a notebook its height and its length. Be precise in the layout of the plan on the wall, because it conditions the final aesthetic rendering of your credenza.

2. Cut the credenza to the desired height
3. Prepare the surface of the kitchen wallThe secret of a well-placed kitchen splashback lies in the preparation of the wall: * Using a spirit level, make sure that the wall is perfectly even. If this is not the case, you will need to apply a surface coating to level all the irregularities. Do not neglect this step, otherwise you will be disappointed with the end result! * When the wall is dry and perfectly even, clean it with a clean cloth to remove all dust on the surface.

4. Install the splashback without glue
© Sally Wallis - Fotolia.com Before sticking your kitchen splashback on the wall, it is more prudent to apply it blank. This consists of placing the tiles on the wall, but without sticking them! This tip will allow you to verify that the splashback fits perfectly on the contours of the plan drawn on the wall. If this is not the case, do not hesitate to slightly correct your cut, so that each tile fits perfectly into the space provided. Be patient and careful, this is the key to success!
