Kitchen Floor Tile
September 23, 2008

We finished laying the kitchen floor tile yesterday, and grouted today so I figured I'd post some pictures of the grouted tile. We haven't finished cleaning the grout haze off the tiles yet, so they look a lot lighter than they're going to end up.

I already posted this picture, but it shows how the floor is prepared for laying the tile.

Me working on the last tile. The cut tiles are easier to push down, so they tend to need extra thinset on the back of the tile as well as on the floor so they don't sink too low.

This is after we finished grouting today. The grout haze still needs to be cleaned off though. The tiles will be darker after the haze is cleaned off, and the grout will dry a little lighter.
