Grout is available in a variety of colors to complement both light and dark stone and brick hues. To coordinate a brick or stone-accented portion of your home where the grout is evident, you can choose another warm or cool color or a contrasting shade from the grout's opposing color family.
Pewter, a medium shade of whitish gray, is an ideal grout color for gray and grayish blue bricks. Stone in the same colors are also visually appealing with pewter grout, making for a blended, monochromatic look. Pewter-colored grout is also an attractive addition to white and off-white bricks or will provide a contrast for bricks in more pronounced colors like black or shades of crimson and burgundy.
Burnt orange bricks add warmth to white grout; cream-colored bricks lend a modest but classy touch to the grout. White grout with black or dark gray bricks provides a classic color contrast, and light or near-white gray bricks are a suitable choice for white grout as well. Pastel-colored bricks pair well with white grout, too, such as lilac or petal pink bricks, which have a pretty and whimsical feel.
Gray and Black Grout
Light-colored brick is the ideal choice for dark grout in shades like charcoal gray and black. Tan or off-white bricks complete the combination for warm and cool neutrals, and pastel gray bricks amidst black grout gives the home a modern feel. Red and black are pleasing to the eye when featured together as well, so medium and dark red hues with deep gray is a suitable choice.
Light and Medium Brown Grout
Honey and wheat-colored grout works well with noticeable and unconventional colors like pistachio green or sea blue. The shades, mixed with cool colors like green or blue, provide a feeling of welcome harmony and a sense of serenity. Dark brown bricks with light tan tile lends a classic prettiness to the home, and other warm brick colors, like cherry red or peachy orange are ideal hues that will complement the brown grout and create the ideal palette for a Southwestern style home.
Dark Brown Grout
Light and medium warm shades look good with grout in a pronounced shade of brown. For instance, butter or lemon yellow bricks lend vibrant color to earth-brown grout. Cool-colored brick will also combine well with rich brown grout. Aubergine brick with chocolate brown gout will make your home one of the most impressive on the block, and hunter green bricks give an earthy, natural feel to your home.
