I have the Formica installed now and am choosing back splash tiles. I brought home some Agora Noche from Lowes to play with. They have a look similar to tumbled but are glazed. What grout would be best, sanded or un-sanded?
If I remember correctly I used 1/8" spacers and then really packed that grout in there. I may have used some kind of additive when I was mixing up the grout, but like I said it's been over ten years, so the specific details are a little lost in the sands of time
Just take your time and do it right and you"ll be golden. We expect to see pics of the finished product!
New problem. I went with Agora Noce tiles and biscuit grout but the grout dried considerably lighter than the color chart. I am going to go over it with Grout Refresher which is also a sealer but am wondering how accurate its color charts are.
Here's the final result. Next I may tackle repainting cabinets, but there's a lot of them. They are not as red as the camera picked up. I suggested just antiquing them darker but my wife wants lighter, maybe antique ivory.
Thanks, havasu, here is the before pic, the yellow formica and wallpaper backsplash lasted over 35 years so the redo should take me the rest of the way. The former was still good except for the joints which took on moisture, this redo doesn't have that type of joints.
