When completing a tile project our clients will often spend hours with us carefully selecting tiles for each room in the house and then when it comes to grout most have not even considered what color they would use to match each tile. Grout is an often overlooked part of the tiling process that gets only a moments thought once the tile selection has been made.Bathroom Tiles Cape Town
However, your choice of grout color plays a huge part in the overall look of your tiles, it also plays a big part in the regular maintenance of the grout, as the lighter it is the more the dirt and grime will show up.
To ensure your grout works for you follow the below tips for color matching your grout.
Tip 1: Blend your grout to your tile color
Unless you want the grout to stand out more than your tile selects a color in a similar shade preferably a neutral shade that will fade away, disguise stains. For a white tile, it is no longer vogue to use starch white grout, we now know it is better to use a light grey grout to hide marks and help show the tile off rather than the grout.
Tip 2: Use dark grout to create a bold look
Dark grout on a white subway tile creates a retro, bold and industrial look and even better helps to mask any stains so is perfect in a shower or kitchen area. On the flip side white grout with a dark tile creates a similar striking effect
Tip 3: Choose a good quality grout
Just like your tiles choosing the right quality grout can make all the difference to your overall finished product. Design Tiles only stocks Mapei Ultra Colour Plus grout and matching silicone.
