Subway Tile Backsplash Question


Hello,

I just installed my first backsplash and I did it with subway tiles. Being my first go around, I can see some minor uneven spots in the horizontal lines. One side of my counter was a tad higher than the other one, and across a gap some of the lines became off a little. Its nothing major, but I am curious if they will become more visible with the installation of grout. I planned on using a grey grout to make them pop out more and I am wondering if using that will make them more visible. If so, would using a white color to match the tile be a better option? Thanks for any input!

Jacob

Looks good. Grouting will make any imperfections less visible.

Use white---your mistakes will vanish--like a poler bear in a blizzard.
