Re: Spring- Yeah!/tile

This is a really interesting discussion- I also love my tile floors, but 
I HATE the tile counters in my kitchen and bath.  It is impossible to 
keep the grout clean and after I get the flagstone laid on the lower 
patio outside, those counters are next on my list to get rid of.  I'd 
rather have anything, even formica on the counters.  Grout and kitchen 
counters simply are a bad idea in my opinion.  Amazing how we all have a 
different take on this stuff isn't it
