Step Two: Choose a colour that is complimentary or contrasting to your tile selection.
A complimentary shade to your tile will create a seamless end result whereas a contrasting grout selection with emphasise the shape or edge of the tile.
Grout is best selected at your local Beaumonts store with the tile and grout chips in front of you, you can also try the ABA online grout visualiser tool.
A complimentary shade is great when using marble, cement, timber or stone look tiles. Most people tend to opt for a complimentary grout for their flooring as it gives a beautifully uniform and seamless result. When selecting a complimentary grout shade, opt for something that blends as closely to the tile as possible. If in doubt 1 shade over is better than 1 shade under.
A contrasting grout colour is perfect when you want the tiles to create a strong design statement or add some ‘pop’ to your space. This type of grout selection is an affordable way to add a design edge. Colourful mosaics are best teamed with a soft contrast to help emphasise the shape and colour of the mosaic. White tiles are teamed great with slate grey rather than black.
For a seamless design match your floor tile colour to your wall grout. Say for example we had a dark grey floor and a beautiful feature wall using a dark grey wall grout will create a stronger design connection between the floor and wall.
