Tumbled Stone kitchen backsplashes, should I or shouldn't I?
We have just finished getting our counter tops replaced with Titanium granite and are now looking at tile samples for the back splash. We have been looking at beige tile and came upon some nice tumbled stone 4 x 4 tiles. We had said right from the start we weren't even looking at stone since it needs to be regularly sealed and is maybe not practical for a kitchen backsplash. This sample is fairly smooth and non-porous compared to many. So far it seems to be the best choice as far as what we like and how it complements the granite. Despite our vow not to go with a porous tile here we are liking it the best!
So my question is for those of you who have had tumbled stone backsplash or know of someone and if you are happy you got it or sorry that you did. How long have you had it and what kind of maintenance is required to keep it looking nice.
Any comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
