Choosing your grout color
is a small detail that
can make a large impact.
There are two common choices
when it comes to choosing
the grout color for your project.
The first choice, and most common
is to blend the
grout color with your choice of tile.
It is impossible to choose a color
that exactly matches your tile
but when blending the color with your tile
you need to stay in the same color family.
This will allow your eye
to see a complete picture
and not a bunch of individual tiles.
See the examples below:
Floor tile with blended grout
Wall tile with blended grout
The second option
is to choose a contrasting grout color.
When you do this your eye
will separate the individual tiles.
This works well when
wanting to install a checkerboard pattern
a black and white floor.
See examples below:
Floor tile with contrasting grout
Wall tile with a contrasting grout color
What happens if you make a mistake choosing the right grout color?
There are a couple of things you can do to change the color.
First you can dig out all of your grout lines and start over.
If this option isn't for you there is also a grout staining product available.
This kit allows you to paint over your grout lines to change the color.
These kits are available in store and would be a special order.
