Designing your “dream” home or adding a few updates to certain rooms can be a very exciting process. The colors, appliances, tiles, furniture can really transform a space into something special. One aspect of the décor, that is often overlooked, is the color of the grout that will be on the floor or back splash in between the tiles in your kitchen, bathroom, or out by the pool.
Grout has many functions; it locks titles together, it fills in spaces between stone and tiles, it prevents edges of tiles from chipping and cracking. However, it also is key to the design of a room. The color of a grout can change the whole look and feel of the room.
The grout color (on the floor, walls, backsplashes) should be selected with a purpose in mind; it should not be an afterthought. People have many options with the grout color – they can match the grout color to the tile, they can contrast it with the tile, or go with a neutral color. Each one of these choices can create a different look for a room. For example: by matching the colors, the grout line doesn’t show much giving the walls or floor a more seamless, fluid look; the room will look very sleek. If you want your tile to stand out, contrasting the grout color with the tile is the best option. With this option, the grout frames and highlights the tile. Many people choose a neutral color (gray, beige, tan); this is considered a “safe” choice; it isn’t too bold and the color matches different styles and colors of tile and everything else in the room.
