Want to mix it up with pink, blue, or yellow? Bring it on. Just be sure your grout can be colored. For this trend to work, your grout should be receptive to color. Silicone and other non-organic materials won’t be receptive to colorant. Here are a few other bits of knowledge when it comes to colored grout.

It’s Not Just for Artists

Think you need to be an artist (or at least have a super-steady hand) to pull off the colored grout trend? It’s not the case. Just use a special grout brush or a clean toothbrush. And hey, if some neon green or bright orange gets on your white tile, just use a nylon sponge to scrub it off.

Start Off Subdued

Don’t think you need to jump in with bright, bold grout colors. Sometimes the best way to test a new trend is to smart small. By opting for subdued hues close to the color of your tile, you’ll make an impact on the look of your room, but it won’t be overwhelming. Consider it a test-run before you work up to flamingo pink or electric blue. Not sure which color grout to select? Check out this designer-inspired grout color selector for inspiration.

Bring On the Colors

Who says you have to stick with colored grout in a single shade? Imagine freshening up your bathroom with cool shades of blue or green grout. Or how about adding a vibrant pop of color in your kitchen with orange and yellow grout? It’s an easy way to invigorate a space that might feel tired. If you’re feeling particularly daring, mix it up a bit by incorporating two shades in your project. Just be sure to choose colors that complement each other well and that feel right in that particular room.

Colored grout is all the talk this fall — and for good reason. It’s a high-impact way to transform your tile in any room of your DFW home. When white just won’t cut it anymore, embrace a colorful outlook when it comes to your home’s tile. Go on and give it a try! And be sure to watch this video for a helpful how-to.
