When choosing your tiles it may be easy to forget about the grout. You’ve spent months planning your new look room, you’ve selected your tiles, your tradesman has arrived and they’ve got your grout with them. What input did you have in selecting that grout? If you didn’t have any input at all then you could be making a big mistake, as the choice of grout is very much a big part of the finished look of your tiles. In this blog, we take a look at just a few reasons why it is so important that you are choosing the grout to go with your tiles.
If you don’t want the individual tiles to stand out then you may wish to opt for a grout colour that matches your tiles. By selecting a colour that matches your tiles, each of your individual tiles will seamlessly blend together, producing a clean and sleek look overall.
Alternatively, you may wish to highlight the individual characteristics of your tiles. With contrasting coloured grout you can make your tiles stand out. The grout lines act as a border around each of your tiles, drawing your eye to the beauty of each tile.
When selecting your choice of grout it is important to take into consideration how the grout will make your tiles look, but you must also consider the practicality of your grout selection.
