Learning how to tile a kitchen wall is the perfect project for any DIYer to save on labour costs and to build a new skillset.  

Tiling a kitchen wall behind a sink, cooker, around food preparation spaces or by bins is not only a beneficial kitchen design choice because it protects the wall from from water and grease, but also because tiles are much easier to clean than a painted wall so it increases the longevity of your space.
