So, you’ve navigated your way through the maze of 1000′s of tile selections and have narrowed your choice. Now it’s time to choose the right grout, a choice that can be equally intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.
Here are 4 basic tips for how to choose the right grout:
1) Determine Tile Spacing
Most home improvement and flooring stores have packages of tile spacers that will help you ensure a nice square fit and even spacing between tiles.
Larger floor tiles are usually spaced 1/8″ or wider and smaller tiles usually are better suited for grout lines 1/8″ or less. Smaller grout lines minimize the tile pattern that is laid out and tend to be easier to clean; consider smaller grout lines for back-splashes, shower walls and countertops.
