Hi - I purchased a new microwave vent combo that is seven inches thinner than my old model. I have basic white subway tile backsplash throughout the kitchen. Not surprisingly the new tile is much whiter than the old tile that has discolored with age and kitchen activity.

Any tips on ways to quickly age the white tile to match more closely to the old? Would color matching the old tile and painting with epoxy paint be the only method? Hoping it is not as that seems like it will not have the same finish and stand out more.

Thanks

Ceramic tile normally will not age or discolor as much as the grout will become dingy or discolored. A picture or two would sure help us to help you.
