We are redoing our kitchen.

I have chosen a ceramic tile that has a high gloss and looks like marble. Do you think that was a mistake bc it will show every drop of water that falls when you are doing dishes and drips occur from the wet dishes being picked up to be dried.

  • I'm confused, you'd need to wipe water off of any surface.

  • i guess you could towel dry it after wiping it. i don't think its a mistake. These days we are trying to make our homes more presentable and give the WOW factor then it is pratical.

  • I guess I wasn't very clear in my question. We have a high gloss floor in the bathroom and every time someone washes their hands or reaches for a towel from the shower with dripping hands and the floor get drops, and then dries, you can see dull spots where the water has dried. Yes I can wipe it but every day every times someone used the jon there is spots to clean. So I was thinking when you rinse dishes and try to get them to the dish washer without dripping, I can see that there will be spots to wipe up all the time. I have bad hips and bending many times causes difficulty for me in walking. I wanted the Wow factor but now I hope that this choice won't make more work for me in keeping it looking nice. They won't be starting the reno until mid November so I HOPE that it is done in time for Christmas. If it doesn't get done in time I think Christmas dinner will be in a restaurant.
