It’s easy to install tile countertops like the professionals do. To begin, remove all trim from around your current countertop. You will use your current countertop for the base, and will reapply the trim once you complete the task of installing the tile countertop.
Remove the laminate from the countertop and sand to a smooth finish. If there are cracks in the countertop, repair them using wood glue. Sand until the glue is even with the countertop.
