Is anyone truly prepared for this?
My kitchen contractor called me at 8 am today to talk about grout. I can count the number of times I've thought about grout colors on two fingers. Three if you include that I'm telling you about it now. John's a very tactful, laid back guy, so our conversations usually go like this:
J: "I'm going to grout the kitchen floor today. Have you given any thought to the grout color."
That clues me in to the fact that I probably should have considered the matter prior to this morning.
Without looking, I can tell you that the Betty Crocker Frosting White tile in Surlywood's kitchen is surrounded by a nice charcoal grey; the red stuff in the bathroom was set up with a neutral color that ultimately didn't remain so.
And (let us pray) I'm not going to do any floor replacements anytime soon.Posted at 8:33 AM to Dyssynergy
