Installing large format marble tile on kitchen wall.
Q. We are considering using a large format marble tile on a kitchen wall. The tile is 7 1/2" X 24" X 3/4".
Is this size tile too heavy to use on a wall? Is special thinset needed?
Currently the wall is lathe and plaster (100+ yr old home), should this all be removed and Backerboard installed, or would it be OK to install directly over it?
