Why Grouting Is So Important In Tiling?

Colored grout no doubt enhances the appearance of tiles and adds beauty to the interior by hiding the imperfections, if any, on the walls and floors. But without sealant it is good for nothing.

So you have remodeled your floors, walls, kitchen backslash and countertops with glossy ceramic tiles. The work is complete and you know that your friends will admire your selection of tiles. The creativity you have displayed with tiles will get appreciation from friends and associates but here is an issue. Your tiling work is incomplete unless you grout the tiles. Grouting doesn't mean polishing or cleaning the slabs you have set decently on floor and walls. Grout is just a filler that is used in filling the space and gap that is left inadvertently between the tiles. On careful inspection, you can discover the gap on your wall and floor tiles. Take the colored grout that matches with your tiles and fill the space.



Picking out the best colored grout is very important to complete your project. A mismatch will destroy your masterpiece and this is especially true for fine mosaic art. Grout seals the gap between the slabs and thus helps hold the tile in place. Some believe that grout is a water resistant substance that prevents the water and moisture from entering the base. You grout the tiles just to fill the gap and give tiles a uniform look. To stop the water from draining down the slabs, you need to use a sealer on the grout.

Colored grout is readily available in the market hence you will find no hassle in finding the grout that matches perfectly with the color of your tiles. Or you can select the product that contradicts with your tile colors. Take for instance you are using light colored tiles then the grout should be darker in contrast to the color of the tiles. If you want to hide imperfections in tiles then use matching color grout as it will veil the imperfection. There are many options when it comes to grouting tiles but you should make sensible choice.



Colored grout no doubt enhances the appearance of tiles and adds beauty to the interior by hiding the imperfections, if any, on the walls and floors. But without sealant it is good for nothing. Quality sealer helps the grout withstand moisture, dirt and debris. It also improves the life of grout and keeps it shining forever. Apply the sealer carefully on the grout after the grouting is complete. Use appropriate tools to apply the sealer and make sure that no space or gap is left without sealer.
