Installing new tile into your kitchen or bathroom can certainly change the look of the room; the room can go from dated to modern in just that one switch. However, if you aren’t planning on installing new tile any time soon, or cannot afford to re-tile at this time, changing your grout color is just as effective for a big change in a room. The color of the grout can make the tile and room look entirely different.
For example, if you have a dark tile, a light colored grout like white, ivory, taupe, sandstone, or almond, creates a big contrast. A contrast like this looks great on a kitchen backsplash; it can make quite the statement for the room. This contrast between the tile and grout will really pop and add a whole other dimension to the room. Your guests will notice!
Darker grout colors like gray, charcoal, pewter, and even black, tone down the tile (if the tile is also dark) and make it harder for the pattern to stick out. You’ll have a very flat look with the colors being similar. Dark grout color also hides dirt easily. Dark grout color on dark tile and light grout color next to light tile creates a monochrome look and effect in the room.
If you want to use a medium-based color, these aren’t as dramatic as a light or dark grout color. These are a great choice if you have a multi-color tile, so you can bring out one of the colors on the tile with your grout color choice. Or, these medium colors give you a chance to match another color in the room like the wall color, furniture, or accessories.
When choosing a grout color, you’re able to complement or contrast elements in the room in a variety of different ways to truly bring together a great (and different) look to any room in your home.
