Invisible Grout Lines Complement Tile Murals
Grout lines can sometimes be distracting to tile murals. Here is a clever solution.
One of the most popular applications is using tile murals behind the cook top in kitchen back splashes. The traditional way to complete the installation of tile murals is to use grout between the tiles. The grout protects the edges of the tiles and deters the buildup of soil between the tiles. While this is the most common method used, it can sometimes be distracting to tile murals. So what is the alternative?
The homeowners and tile installer of this project came up with the solution. The tile mural was installed "net" or without space between the tiles. Then clear silicone caulk was placed between the tiles to protect the tile edges and make cleaning the tile mural a breeze. The result is a tile mural with a seamless look. This method of finishing tile murals can be used anywhere around your home, even outside.
What if you desire the look of grout between the tiles in your tile mural, but don't want to deal with the repeated sealing of the grout? The solution is tile caulk. This product comes in many colors and even sanded to match the grout used in the field tile. Using tile caulk creates a continuous flow between the tile mural and the back splash area. The best asset in using tile caulk is there is no sealing necessary, ever! Combine tile caulk to the protective coating used on any of the tile murals available at Murals by Monti and maintenance is made simple and worry free. The superior coating used even makes the tile murals resistant to UV damage.
