Using dark grout

I was watching one of those American reno shows last night and the girl was using dark grout with her white honeycomb shaped tiles and they came up amazing. I tossed up about the dark grout in my own kitchen when I was building but never went through with it. I should have because it really makes a statement.

Today I grabbed a few photos from around the web to inspire you…








If you’re not game enough to do an entire kitchen splashback then a feature wall in the shower would be great. Or even in the laundry. I also really like the small tiles on the floor with the dark grout – would be easy to hide the dirt.

What do you think about these?

Have a great day. ♥ KC.

    Have just finished tiling bathrooms in new house this week with dark grout everywhere. It’s so practical on a farm. Using it on the kitchen splash back too. Really happy with it.

    Just in the process of updating my kitchen and have decided on black grout with subway tiles, the only thing I can’t decide is to whether to have a black or white bench top, the cabinetry will be white. My thoughts are with the White and have black accessories. Not 100% sure!

    I think dark grout is practical, especially in the kitchen. Nothing worse than trying to scrub spaghetti bowl sauce stains out of white grout!! x
