Details
We recently had some herringbone tiles installed on the backsplash of our ensuite- unfortunately in 2 strips there has been a mistake which has resulted in grout gaps not appearing. Unfortunately our tiler is unable to fix this due to overseas commitments. I am keen to get this fixed as it is visually very obvious

This can be fixed 2 ways.
1 break and remove the tiles adjust spacings to suit gaps and re lay tiles.
Or

Cut/gring with a porcelain cutting blade the ends of the tiles to suit the other gaps,
Clean then grout fill.
A lot quicker yes dusty but nothing a wet chux cant wipe up after.
I have completed other jobs similar to this.
I am booked out this week however next week has some openings.

Questions(15)
Please make sure you use a diamond blade and a masking tape to cover and mark the tile you cutting, this will also reduce the amount of dust. Thanks Tal
So these are the only ones?
7 tiles need grinding. Definitely try option 2! First.
As Ed mentioned
Do you know what colour / brand the grout was?
The cabinet will not interfere with anything cardboard would be suffice to protect against dust scratches
The pics aren't coming through clearly to show it in proportion to bench and shaving cabinet
