    Default options #1 #2 #3

    so, i am going to replace it with one of these...

    3 options...all the same SPA style, to give the impression of a hand laid pebble, they come in sheets of 12 x 12

    please give me your opinions on which one you like best

    is that travertine? wonder if you can acid wash it? surely there is a cleaning agent you can use and then apply a high quality sealer to prevent it in the future.

    yeah, i've tried. i think it's calcification from the grout. bottom line, the cost to re-do the floor is minimal, and i look foward to the new look. feel me?

    Yup. The first one is out for me. Too bland. Out of the 2nd and 3rd, I think I like the 2nd one best. The 3rd one almost looks like exposed aggregate concrete. The 2nd looks clean, crisp and rich.

    When I was in construction, I would only use SpectraLock grout. No calcium, inherently sealed, epoxy based.

    I love it, it WILL NOT stain!

    That is all you need to do. (pm me on it if you like.)
