Glass tile advice: ADKO vs Waterworks?
Hello Kitchen Friends,
We're doing a glass tile backsplash in a contemporary kitchen remodel. We ordered ADKO tile and were discouraged to open the boxes and find the vast majority of the tiles were defective. They have a frosted finish, but the finish is uneven, with some spots still glossy. The overall effect is mottled rather than smooth.
So we returned them, and our dealer is very gracious to help us find a solution. Our choices are to try another batch of ADKO, or to go with another brand. We are wary of getting more ADKO because these were so bad, what are the chances the next batch will be different?
Very few brands offer tile that we want (pale green, frosted, in a shape that is a long rectangle, like 3x12 or 4x12). I see that Waterworks does have that in their Opix collection. Our shop is not a Waterworks dealer but they can probably get them, but this will be a long process.
Does anyone have experience with either of these brands? Or other possibilities?
Thanks for any advice you can offer!
