We finally finished the trim work in the kitchen, so I can show you my beautiful new tile from Home Depot!
Here’s the before…
Yes, it’s white. Yes, I have to mop it every few days. Yes, it shows all the dirt and drips. But YES, I love it anyway. See, I had a floor that camouflaged dirt and I disliked it. A lot. I’d rather have a floor I love that I have to clean a little more often to keep it looking nice. It’s a fair trade for me.
I ended up going with the 18 x 18″ Carrera Marble Dal-tile. It’s not real marble, but a more practical, less expensive, very convincing look-a-like.
I followed the advice of the flooring specialist who installed it and had it put down in a staggered pattern. I followed the advice of my readers and used a gray grout to hide stains. I am so happy I listened to smart people! :)
With painted cabinets, new hardware and a new floor, my kitchen is starting to come into its own without any expensive renovations.
…and I love it.
The Home Depot partnered with bloggers such as me to participate in its Daltile program. As part of the program, I received compensation from The Home Depot in the form of a gift card to participate in this campaign promoting the new Atmospheres Tile Collection by Daltile.
