How to Choose Grout Color for Tile Floors


Grout is a small but important detail in a tiling project. Choosing a color of grout that will clash against your tile or accumulate stains easily can ruin your entire project. While some of the decision needs to be based on your personal décor preferences, there are some tips to decide on a grout color to achieve a professional result.

Things You'll Need

  • Tile
  • Grout samples
  • Visit your local home improvement or flooring supply store and bring one of your tiles with you. Looking at grout next to the tile will help you to make a more informed decision. Hold your tile next to each color and decide which ones you like best. Stick to neutral colors or colors close to the tile you are using.

  • Ask the store clerk for samples of the grout colors you are considering and take them home. Your room’s lighting will make a difference in the way the colors look together.

  • Lay a few of your tiles on the floor and place grout samples between them. Leave them there over a few days and look at them often. Eliminate the colors you do not like by removing them as you decide against them.

  • Choose and purchase your grout. Bring the samples with you to return them to the store.
