The biggest reason that many homeowners end up choosing tile flooring throughout their home is because it is such a low maintenance flooring. Even though tile flooring can be one of the most durable flooring options out there, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to still maintain it to get the most out of it. Especially when it comes to the grout. This porous surface must be cleaned and sealed professionally to ensure it doesn’t get stained and damaged. This is why many homeowners are often wondering which grout color is going to be the easiest to clean and maintain. Silver State Floor Restoration is here to talk all about grout and what you can do to make maintaining it easier.
Should Grout Be Darker or Lighter than the Tile?
Because grout is such a porous surface, it can be difficult to clean and keep it clean. Unless it is regularly sealed, it will soak up any spills that happen in your home. If you are worried about keeping your grout clean, you may want to consider choosing a grout that is darker in color. When the grout is a darker color, you don’t have to worry about as much staining like you would if you have white grout. Sometimes, when you have white grout, it can start to discolor as well.
Dark Grout Needs to Be Cleaned Too
Even if you have chosen a dark colored grout for your tile flooring, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to worry about cleaning and sealing it. That grout line is still a porous surface that can get filled with grime and liquids that spill. When you have a dark grout that isn’t cleaned or sealed, you could end up with damage to the flooring which can be expensive to repair. Dirt and dust that settles into the grout can work to break down the grout line and cause problems.
How Do I Know what Color Grout to Use on Floor Tiles?
When you’re trying to pick the right grout for your tile floor, it can be a difficult decision to make. If you’re wanting to make the pattern of your tile pop, choose a contrasting color to get the results you want. For those of you that are wanting the grout lines to blend in with the tile flooring, choosing a grout that is similar in color to the tile will be your best option. For instance, you may want the grout to blend in if you have chosen tile that resembles wood planks. In that case, you may want to choose one that is just one shade lighter or darker than your tile.
