Believe it or not, it isn’t your choice of tile that makes or breaks a space—it’s the grout that seals everything together that matters. For a lot of homeowners, the sealant is just an afterthought and doesn’t impact the final look of a room, but in reality, it makes all the difference. To convince you to steer clear of the usual white tile filling, we’ve listed down a few reasons why you should try out new colors and textures: 

1. It’s less prone to discoloration or dirt build-up.

Unlike the usual white, colored grout—especially the darker pigments—helps conceal dirt and stains. It also takes longer for tinted grout to fade or yellow which buys you more time before you have to retile your bathroom. 

2. It can add depth to washed-out tiles.

While all-white tiles lend a stunning minimalist aesthetic to different spaces, it also borders on looking too sterile. Make non-colors stand out with tinted grout—it can help anchor and add another layer to your bath or cooking corner.  

3. It can accentuate the tile's shape.

If you have intricately shaped tiles, colored grout is the perfect way to highlight unique designs. White can make slating look like one, big block and slowly fade accent tiles into the background.  

4. It adds a pop of color.

Whether its bright-colored tiles that you want to take to the next level or a white bathroom that needs an extra punch, tinted grout can transform any space. It’s an instant way to make any room interesting. 

5. It matches everything.

No matter the size, shape, type or color of your tiles, you can find a corresponding tinted grout that matches it. You can even add a secondary grout color if you’re feeling adventurous!
