If you suspect that you have a leak in your home or just notice that your tiles are starting to look a bit weathered, it might be time to replace your grout. Unmaintained tile grout can detract from the look of your bathroom or balcony and can lead to further damage in your home’s wet areas. When regrouting tiles, one of the most important factors to consider is the actual colour of the sealant. The right grout can not only protect your tiled surfaces but also bring a refreshed look to these spaces. That’s why we’ve put together a guide for how to pick out the right grout colour for your home.
Factors To Consider When Choosing Grout Colour
There are several factors to think about when it comes to choosing the colour of your new grout. This can include:
- Grout Type: The first thing to consider before even choosing the colour, is the type of grout to use for the tiles. Depending on your choice, it can affect what options are available as well as factors such as the amount of maintenance required. A popular choice is epoxy grout as it is waterproof, making it ideal for bathrooms and balconies.
- Tile Colour: The colour of your actual tiles will play a big role in the overall look of your grout. Depending on how you want the space to look, you may want to pick out a colour that contrasts against your tiles or complements them.
- Tile Size & Shape: The tile size and shape can also affect the grout colour that you eventually choose. For instance, with smaller tiles, a darker grout can create a mosaic effect while lighter grout can make the tiles appear larger.
- Room Size: If you’re looking to make a smaller room appear larger, opt for light grout colours whereas darker grout will create a cozier feeling.
Popular Tile Grout Colours
Tile grout can come in a variety of colours and shades, each with its benefits for the look of your room. The most popular colours include:
- White: A classic choice that remains popular despite its simplicity due to the clean and timeless look that it offers.
- Grey: This is a neutral colour that works well for modern spaces, providing a subtle contrast to light or dark tiles.
- Beige: A warmer tone that can create an inviting atmosphere and works well to tie together the different parts of the room.
- Black: This grout is best used when you want to make a statement. It works well as a contrast to light-coloured tiles and creates a strong look with the defined edges of each tile.
