Choosing the Grout Colour for Your Tiles
When choosing the grout colour of your tiles many people choose to a grout colour which blends with their tiles or contrast their tiles. If you decide to pick a grout colour that blends the colour of your tile you this will ensure your tiles appear seamless throughout the room. The second option is to choose a grout colour that contrasts your tiles. This will frame each of your tiles which allow your eyes to outline each tile individually. This design principal is more often used when installing decorative tiles.
