Mohawk Delanova or Bayou porcelain tile

debbie1031March 20, 2011

I thought I hit submit this morning but can't find it, so if a duplicate shows up, I apologize!

Has anyone installed Mohawk's Delanova in Caramello Latte or Chiara Cream or Bayou in Morning Fawn? Or Daltile Castle de Verre? I love the way they look on the sample boards but am wondering if they read light, medium or overly patterned IRL. ALso how about upkeep? Grout freaks me out a little. Lighter grouts with lighter tiles is a gorgeous look to me, but if it gets dirty it looks so bad!And I don't want to be a slave to my floors.

Pictures would be fantastic! Thanks!

Oh- also- my sample board says Bayou, but I think it's also called Orleans.

On the grout issue, I would use spectra Lock from Laticrete. triple the cost but it wont freak you out once you have it. It will stay clean. Good Luck

Debbie 1031,
I was wondering which tile you decided on and how you like it. I just saw your posts from March, and we are considering Mohawk's Delanova in Caramello Latte or Chiara cream. We haven't seen a big sample of Chiara cream. Thanks for your input.
