How to match colours of grout and tile?

Which one to buy? White or beige? Subdued or contrasting? Despite of appearances and many opinions, colour of grout has vast impact on interior arrangement. Colour of grout should match the type of cladding, size of tiles and interior design. Here are a handful of tips to help you choose the right colour.



End
 Pomieszczenia nowoczesne Dark grouts match perfectly white and wood-coloured tiles.
While using grout of constrasting colour, a few factors must be considered first: unevenness of tiles caused by production process, the need for cutting tiles at some places and tile arrangement - they must be precisely positioned.
While grouts are contrasting, any unevennes, damage or sloped position will be even more visible. The same applies to the grouting itself - rectified tiles do not pose such problems, but the lack of rectification increases surface of grout. Its excessive wash out, even on small part, will be more visible.

Modern interior

Interiors has been dominated by modern style for many years. Ascetic, simple furniture and accessories, lots of white, grey, not much of decorations, big spaces and no vivid colours. Bright rooms can be also of more classical style with contrasting colours - e.g. black or grey grouts and white tiles.



Back
Pomieszczenia klasyczne i ciepłe For tiles with bright timber pattern e.g. pine, oak, chestnut, birch, grout should be grey or light beige - entire cladding will look natural and most alike as a timber floor. Tiles with dark timber pattern should be combined with brown or dark beige grouts.
While using a grout colour matched to the colour of tile, we obtain effect of unified wall or floor. This is perfect for small rooms (e.g. bathroom) where we usually tend to visually enlarge spaces by using large tiles. Any grout contrasting to the colour of tile forms line that unnecessarily catches the eye. Therefore, instead of large-format tiles, you can use a 40/40 cm or 30/30 cm cladding with a grout of a similar color.

Classic interiors and warm colours

Interiors with subdued colours have less room to show off when it comes to choice of grout. When we stick to the standard, we should choose grout in colour similar to the colour of tile.

Grout is not much visible with large tiles. Even though the grout is tight (3 mm), it is no less important. Grout plays a huge role - protects surface beneath the tile against humidity and ensures great final effect, even when it is of the same colour as tiles.

Large tiles

Tiles of size 30x30 cm are more and more often given up. Lots of manufacturers offer large tiles which are perfect for living rooms, on facades or interior walls. Choice is wide. Colours, shades correspond to the nature - stone, timber, ground, sand, etc.

In this case, choice of grout is rather easy. When we wish to add some expressive character, then we should choose colour which is the most dominant on the tile. However, when we want to harmonize the room - we choose more subtle shade.

Patchwork cladding (multiple colours, shapes)

Patchwork cladding is more commonly chosen for the small rooms - mainly for walls in toilet and bathroom or at kitchen splashback. Patchwork cladding can form so called carpet on a floor, is often handmade, has unique patterns that can change any interior.

Mosaic

Mosaic tiles are ideal for small rooms on entire wall or in large ones as a small detail. Some people match glitter grout with a shimmering glass mosaic.



Back
tarasy balkony A big plus for a grout in colour the same as tile is that it covers irregularities of cladding and allows for elimination of any tiling slip-ups.
From the northern side of building, we can choose darker tiles and grouts but still the grout colour must be similar to the colour of a tile and grout must be min. 5 mm wide. Cladding is exposed to the severe weather conditions - rain, snow, etc. so that dirt is showing off much earlier than in interiors.

Terraces, balconies, facades

Grout for exterior use should be of approx. 5 mm width - wider than for interior use, as there is a risk of rapid temperature changes and cracking. For sunny terraces the best is to install bright tiles and grouts, it reflects light and protects against surface cracking. Grout in sand colour is a good solution for such application.

Final effect of grouting depends on various factors: temperature during cladding fixing, volume of mix water (water amount must be checked on scale if we need to obtain colour the same as in colour chart), conditions of grout application, tile size and type.
We must take into consideration that grout after drying will be brighter than right after application and over the longer time it gets darker, especially on a floor. After tile fixing we must take time, defined by adhesive manufacturer in order to not cut off excessive water underneath the tile - it may cause grout discolouration. Remember that lightning can make a huge impact on final efect and grout looks slightly different on vertical and horizontal surface. While choosing grout colour, we should take into consideration final room lightning - grouts and tiles will look different in cold and warm lightning.

White grout


White grout is elegant and visually enlarges the room. It is universal, perfect for both modern and classic interiors, underlines pattern of cladding. ATLAS offers three shades of white, designed for interiors of cold as well as warm tones.
Colour charts are always helpful when choosing the grout colour. Remember that colour in a colour chart is only examplary.

Note that after just a few weeks tiles may start to crack. Tiles dimensions may be not perfectly repeatable, deformation may be formed when tiles are installed tightly close to each other. Dirt, water and germs may get between the tiles - a tragedy for allergy sufferers. Moreover, it is easy to damage edges of tile which are not protected by a grout. This method of tiling is in breach with good building practice and has very unpleasant consequences including customer claims on quality of our service (because they had no clue that this solution is not not a good idea). Grout is only a detail, yet it is very important. This is a final touch that makes an impact on final effect of interior designer`s and tiler`s effort.

Beginning

Groutless cladding

Finally, let`s forget about groutless cladding. We don`t know who said that and why and unfortunately many customers insist that they just want tiles without grout. It takes a lot of time for us to explain why this technique should not be used.

What does the stain-resistance mean?


Stain-resistance is a functional parameter of grouting mortars which is not defined by standards, however, it has a huge impact on final aesthetics of cladding. This feature determines if grout is prone to get discoloured in contact with some substances (e.g. coffee, ketchup, iodine, olive oil, red wine, juice, etc.) which penetrate into the structure of grout or discolour only its top surface.
Depending on a type of liquid and the time it remains on a grout we can observe whether there is any discolouration, how hard is to clean and is there any stain left after cleaning.

What are the fibers for?


Celulose fibers in ATLAS Ceramic Grout ensure excellent water retention and compensation of shrinkage formed during initial setting. In other words, grout does not crack when is applied between tiles of various absorptivity nor in high temperatures - up to 35°C

Polypropylene fibres form so called 'structural reinforcement' which ensures long-term trouble-free use of cladding, even with large tiles. They ensure no microcracks with a very wide filling width (up to 20 mm).

ATLAS CERAMIC GROUT is based on a high quality cement binder, selected aggregates and advanced additives. One of them is KLINOPTIOLITH, a mineral of volcanic origin that increases mechanical strength, improves tightness and complete filling of joint. More compact structure of grout ensures water repellency and at the same time resistance to stubborn dirt (coffee, wine and even ink).

ATLAS CERAMIC GROUT is the hardest available grout on a basis of cement binder. One of technical classification of grout is resistance to abrasion. EN 13888 standard specifies value that cement grouts must have in order to be marked with the symbol A - high abrasion resistance. In practice it means that it can be cleaned and scrubbed many times without worrying about damage or scratching. It does not deteriorate water repellency, so initial stain resistance is maintained.

What does mean that grout is resistant to scrubbing?


What does the hydrophobicity mean?


Hydrophobicity is the ability of molecules of a specific material to repel water.
In case of grout, the effect is that water does not soak into the grout structure - water form drops on the top surface. Ceramic Grout ATLAS is even superhydrophobic - water drops not only stay on the top of grout but also are pushed towards the tile. Hydrophobicity has main impact on keeping the grout clean.

The higher hydrophobicity, the more grout repels water and at the same time any substances that are dissolved in water, including dirt. Grout is also reistant to atmospheric conditions.

Jan Jakóbik Jan Jakóbik star star star star star Grout very nicely fills the joints. It can be effortlessly applied on large surfaces. Cleaning process is as easy and convenient as application and speeds up work.
Caution! While mixing, do not add more water than recommended by the manufacturer. Due to its high water repellency, the grout appears difficult to mix at first. The final consistency appears after double mixing.

Przemysław Dynak Przemysław Dynak star star star star star I used Ceramic Grout for large tiles. It was easy to apply on corners and very nice in shaping. I was amazed, how quick can I wash off excess of material and shape surface at once. There were no bubbles and it did not require much effort to obtain very satisfying effect.
Grout was not washed out, did not stain subsequent surfaces. This is very important while combining two different grout colours, e.g. brown and white.
