Do subway tiles hold up?
I am considering tiling my shower with subway tiles. If I decide to go with the subway tiles they will be the American Olean tiles from Lowes. I can only find the 3" x 6" size.
I love the look but am concerned. My dad has done general contracting for 20 years and he said "he has never put subway tiles in a shower, only kitchen back-splashes". But I have seen many bathrooms with showers tiled with subway tiles. I know due to the size it is very time consuming but I am prepared for that.
How well do subway tiles hold up?
We have well water does not seem hard or to have alot of iron. How do you clean subway tiles?
I know most people would go with a white grout but I have a 4 year old. I am considering a warm gray or silver grout.
The bathroom will have a slate looking floor. I have not decided on a paint color yet.
Any advice or direction?
