Tiling a Tabletop the Easy Way

Article excerpt

* This project makes use of a new line of indoor-outdoor tiles that are designed to eliminate one of the problem areas where kitchen, bath, and outdoor tile counters often fail-the leading edge. Usually, a trim tile faces the outside edge, and the assault of water and weather deteriorate the grout seam between the top surface and the edge tile. These new tiles-1/2 inch thick and 5 1/2 inches square in 20 colors-wrap from the top surface 1 1/4 inches down the edge, creating a P-shaped lip that eliminates the need for edge trim tiles altogether.

Handcraft Tile of Milpitas, California, designed these Table Top Tile Kits for easy use. Field tiles are $5, sill tiles $15, and corner tiles $25; the protruding lip on sill and corner tiles extends 1 1/4 inches.
