Although theyÂ’re called polishing pads, they slowly but surely round the edges, as well as smooth sides. In the basement we dug down, greatly improving the head height and formed a cozy media room and a lux laundry and mudroom. Our contractor advised us to use ceramic, but not marble because “marble scratches easier”. Definitely put the tiles as close together as possible and use non-sanded grout in a matching color.

However, if you make cuts or have an exposed side that hasnÂ’t been edged, itÂ’s a good idea to do so. Chances are, you have already laid them out on the countertop in a particular pattern, so itÂ’s important to be sure which sides will be polished. We increased the size of the main floor by levelling of the back of the house; this increased the foot print in the kitchen and brought in much more natural light. Plan on having the field tiles overhang edge by the amount necessary to cover the vertical front face with hardibacker strips and hang tile strips under the overhang of the field tiles.

Some granite tile is sold with edge profiles, that are custom cut to be installed on edges and corners.
