Choosing the right grout for your project

Date Published: 17 November 2020

You've spent time and money finding the perfect tile for your project, you don't want to let the finished project down by choosing the wrong grout.

Grout is the cement-based mixture that is used to fill the space between tiles. It's a true multi-tasker and also acts as a barrier to prevent dirt and debris from going down between each tile or under the tiles, as well as this it can also be used as a design feature, and can be used to create a look.

When tiling, it is very important to choose the right colour grout for your tiles so that it effortlessly blends into the overall aesthetic of your room or space, so here, Elaine from our Sales Team has shared some helpful guides to help you get this right.

 

Know the style you would like to create

 

Having an image or vision of the style you would like to create helps tremendously when choosing the tiles and grout. Being able to refer back to something when making these decisions means you can't go too far wrong!

 

Matching grout to your tile colour

 

Generally, nowadays, people are looking for that fresh and clean finish. They want their tiles to be the feature and to not see any grout lines. To achieve this, you need to choose a grout that is closest in colour to the tile itself. This will create a minimal and unison look.

Contrasting grout to your tile colour

 

If you are wanting to create a statement or, to clearly define each tile, choose a contrasting colour grout to your tile colour. For example, black grout with white tiles.

In some instances, it is not possible to find a grout that completely matches your tiles. For example, you could have multi-coloured tiles or wood-effect tiles and find it hard to chose a grout to go with them. If this is you, it is best to go with a neutral colour grout such as grey or beige.
