My focus has to be on this new venture, and I'm finding it very difficult to concentrate on the house.
Epoxy is great; in that it doesn't absorb dirt, stain, or change colour. You can achieve a smooth, seamless profile, without the lipped edge you get from regular grout.
In the past, I've used epoxy grout on a very white marble, and although it doesn't stain, the grout still looks dirty. It doesn't stay white unless you scrub every inch of it, manually.
I prefer to use a dark grout, picking up the darkest colour in a tile. Unless you clean like Joan Crawford, light coloured grout is going to collect dirt on the surface,cracks and crevasses, and show it. At least with dark grout, it better hides the inevitable dirt.
White, and light coloured grout, advances, so you notice it first. Who wants to feature their grimy grout? Not me, that's for sure. Although with what we paid for this grout job......?
I was looking at some old photos of our Florida house and I love the marble, but wish we had gone with a darker grout. It looks good from a distance; but close up your eye is drawn to any surface dirt.
I love the hand painted sinks I found, and wish I could remember who made them?
I had no idea that my blog was inaccessible, until my former housekeeper emailed me because she couldn't find it. I didn't intend to put my settings on private, and I never would have noticed, so thank you E. Won't you please come home for Christmas? I miss you!
