Howdy... wondering if anyone has had any experience working with 1" Hexagon tile.
I'm installing this in our new bathroom; specifically, it's unglazed porcelain. The (current) problem I'm pondering is grouting and sealing this tile.
The books I've read show how to grout & seal and it sure looks easy... provided you use the 12" tiles. With the small, 1" hex-tile, I'm anticipating a few challenges including keeping the tile from being stained and sealing the grout adequately (all of those joints with the Hex tile seems daunting).
My plan is: pre-seal the tile (to keep the grout from sticking to the tile), then grout, then put a 2nd coat of sealer on both the grout and the tile. However, I spoke to a rep at the tile manufacturer yesterday who said there is no need to pre-seal the tile because it's porcelain. Just a gut feeling, but I'm not terribly confident in this advice.
SO, does anyone have any real-world experience with this? Am I on the right track at all?
