I was in the local home improvement store and they have some very nice
Marble and granite 12"x12" tiles and bull nose tiles. I was thinking this
would look very nice as a counter top. I could skuff up the existing counter
put the tile over and have a granite counter top at a fraction of the cost,
plus I could do it myself! If I do this, could I but the tiles together and
have a minumal grout joint, or would I be better off leaving it at the
standard gout joint? Or would I be better off forgetting the idea?
Also, if I do this, should I use sanded or unsanded grout?
You might wander around here a little:
Much thinner, much easier to work. If it makes a floor, , , , ,
No, I have not used it for a countertop, but I'm thinking hard
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
I used a 2 part epoxy grout about 13 years ago on my kitchen
counter tops and they are still going strong. BTW, today there
are some new 2 part grouts with work much easier than the stuff
I used. I also went straight up the wall to the upper cabinets
with the tile without the typical backsplash ... a real nice
look in IMO. Also, under the tile on the countertops was a 3/4"
piece of plywood with a 3/8" piece of plywood over that. This,
with the tile, made the proper thickness for the oak nosing
(from the cabinet manufacturer).
