Tumbled Travertine backsplash sealing question
 
We also had a backsplash put in although we did not get it grouted by the contractors. I want to leave the little holes in it without grout. My question is do we seal it before grouting or after? I found an old archived post about travertine and stone tech enhancer and sealer. We got samples of each and are going to try it on a sample tonight. The enhancer is a sealer right? I wouldn't need another sealer if I use it?

Here are some pictures of the kitchen. It turned out better than the bath so far!

If you like the look of the enhancer, that's all you need, yes, it's a sealer.:)

I would grout it all and fill the holes, that's the look.:)

Seal it before grouting, then if you wish, seal it all again and the grout a week later, but be carefull if using the enhancer if you seal it again, it can darken the stone even more, the grout too.:)

Normal sealer won't change the color, it might some, but 2 coats won't make a difference.:)
