  • grouting backsplash

    I placed tiles as a backsplash to a wooden vanity.

    My question is, would I grout the tile that is directly between the wooden vanity top and the first row of tiles? (ie. look at the att. picture, I am wondering if I grout right above the blue tape on the vanity). If I did, this would mean grout would be in direct contact with the vanity...is this a problem? I would seal it later.

    don't grout the bottom row against the sink as the movement of the counter top wood and the grout drying out will make it crack. Use a flexible mold proof silicone instead.

      Thanks for the info...

      I'll caulk it with a silicone (with a little color)

        Do both, grouting and 100% mold resistance silicone....

        This why a person who does this buys grout and silicone in matching colors, Yep..... Inside corners going up should be silicone too......

          Unsure exactly what you mean...

          Do I grout it first (like usual) and then (2nd) put a layer of silicone over it?
