Hi guys.
I’m after a bit of advice on how to prepare my kitchen wall for a splashback that I’m doing in 200x100 bevelled metro tile.
I battened and plasterboarded the wall and freshly skimmed it around 18 months ago. It’s also painted with Matt emulsion.

What are you opinions on how I should prep the wall? Sand down, scrape, key?
Thanks
 

Dave
