1. Can you put kitchen tile over existing tiles?

2. Which are better kitchen tiles Metallic or Porcelain?

3. Are grout between tiles are in the pass?

Floors, walls, just the back splash?

The last question makes no since to me.

Kitchen Tiles


It is best to remove the old tiles. I really like some of the metallic tiles and would prefer them in looks over most porcelain tile. When shopping for tiles, just ask what types of tile might work best for your application. Some tiles are pretty much just for walls, whereas others can go on a floor or a wall. The contractor or retailer should be able to help with what works best, meets your style, and fits into your budget.
