Grouting Tumbled Stone Tile Help!
We have just finished installing our tumbled stone backplash in our kitchen. My question is We really like the look of all the pits and character of the stone and would prefer not to fill them in with grout.
I heard that you need to seal the stone prior to grouting so not to change the color of the stone itself.
Is it a bad idea to not fillin the holes and pits of the stone?
What do we use to seal the stone prior to grouting that will not cause a problem with the grout not sticking?
Can a enhancer/sealer combo product be used prior to grouting?
Also our tile dealer sold us non sanded grout, however due to the natural form of the stone tiles the grout lines appear larger than 1/8 of and inch. So should we use sanded grout instead?
We plan on using an enhancer as our last step.
Any help on this would be appreciated.
