How to Pick Grout for Your Tile
If you couldn't tell by the title, we are shaking things up and going back to basic folks! Grout is such a controversial item, where it can really make or break your tile selection. You may want something to stand out, so you pick a contrasting color, or maybe you just want it to be subtle and blend it. But where do you start? With so many colors to choose from, it can get a little overwhelming. And thats why I am writing this to help you guys out!
Tile is one of my favorites to design with! There are so many ways to switch up a standard tile, grout color included. I love a good white tile with a black grout. (You guys know me and my love of black and white!)
Whatever it may be, you have to promise me one thing, please, please, please do not pick a grout color from the screen! I know its easy, and I know you may be tempted, but color calibrations on computers are always so different.
