Why Your Grout Choice Is Just As Important As Your Floor Tile
It really comes down to three options
“The best way to choose grout is to decide if you want it to match, complement, or contrast the tile,” says Walker. For example, if you’re working with a white tile, do you prefer white, charcoal gray, or neutral beige grout? Each will have a different effect on both the tile pattern and the overall room design. “If you’re choosing a coordinating grout, the space will tend to feel larger, while a contrasting color will make a space feel busier, which is not always a bad thing.” Note that a dark color’s graphic effect will be amplified if you’re creating a mosaic, which typically has more grout lines.
But there’s still plenty of room to experiment
For an outside-the-box design, consider an epoxy grout that glitters or even glows in the dark, says Walker. If that’s a little too bold, take a look at brass, copper, or stainless-steel metal inlays, which will subtly accent the tile pattern.
