Home decor today has advanced engineering and modern technology. This includes installing better tile, grout, glass and such other basics of building a residential or commercial complex. Today, it is even possible to color your grout in a shade matching to your decor, something that was impossible a decade ago. This minute detailing brings a major change in the look of your floorings, countertops and showers. In this article, we shall discuss how to change the color of your grout.
But first, let us know more about grout, its structure, importance and other fundamentals.
Grout forms an important part of your flooring. It is a dense liquid filled between two tiles to join them. It also makes your surface look uniform and even. Grout is made from sand and cement and is basically a gap filler that acts like an adhesive to join tiles. But the only problem with it is that it is porous. The delicate and porous structure of grout absorbs all types of liquids into its pores.
When moisture remains in the pores, it gives birth to mold and mildew. This moisture forms a dirty stain when dirt mixes with it. Eventually, the grout lines begin to look dark, stained and dirty. Another problem with mold is that it spreads on the tile surface quickly, thereby ruining your entire flooring with its greenish black residue. Discolored, old and stained grout is a common issue that home and commercial complex owners face.
An epoxy resin grout sealer, when used on the grout lines can help to prevent these issues with grout.
When you seal your grout with a water-resistant sealer, a waterproof layer is formed on the surface, thereby preventing grout from absorbing water or moisture. This in turn prevents deterioration of grout. There are many kinds of grout sealers available on the market, the most common ones are water-based and epoxy grout sealers.
With the possibility of changing the color of your grout, you can bring in more colors in your home decor, thereby enhancing your interior look. If you have more brown and beige in your bedrooms, a flooring with brown and beige tile and grout will look striking. Similarly, if you have a kitchen in all white, you can install a gray flooring with white grout to give a striking contrast.
