How do you tile around an electrical socket?
Subsequently, one may also ask, can you tile over electrical outlets?
Note that you should tile around the edge of the box - don't tile right up to the edges of the receptacle within. This way the receptacle can be accessed if needed. The faceplate will cover past the edges of the box. As you can see, that's designed for exactly your case.
Likewise, how do you cut tile without breaking it? Mark the tile where you want the cut, lay another tile across the one to be cut as a straight edge, then, pressing down firmly on the cutter, draw it across the tile paying particular attention to the start and finish of your line. If the glaze is not scored for the complete length of the cut, the tile will break.
Secondly, how do you hide an outlet in a backsplash?
Plastic covers on standard outlets can be unsightly or detract from a decorative backsplash. Hiding the outlets, either through decorative covers or by moving them, keeps your kitchen functional while maintaining its style and design.
How do you cut ceramic tile?
To cut a ceramic tile using a glass cutter, start by using a pencil and a square, or a ruler shaped like a right angle, to measure and mark your tile. Next, place the square right next to the marked line so you can use it as a guide, then press down on the tile with the glass cutter and drag it along the line.
