Beauty is in the Eye of the BeholderThat phrase has never been truer. When it comes to tiles, the range of looks is overwhelming. From smooth ceramic and porcelain tiles with and without patterns to Travertine, with its fibrous or concentric look, you can always find the perfect tile to fit your personality and the room. Why stop there? The grout used to install these tiles can not only enhance the installation, it can add a completely new design element to the project. The Tile Doctor understands this and specializes in boutique grout products that bring enough variety to the table to let your imagination run wild.

What's Cooking in the Kitchen?For people who love to cook, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. The kitchen is also a popular place for tile installations. Why not make your preferred cooking style a part of your design element? Maybe you're into modern cooking or high-end dining. A combination of chrome and dark-toned tiles with the Starlike Metallic Grout Collection might be a perfect decorative choice. On the other hand, your cooking choices might lean more toward the classic cuisine side, so you might want to go for earthy colors and comfortable patterns on your tiles. A rustic look might be more fitting. Starlike's earthy tones are a great fit for kitchens with a country flair or situations where you might want to recreate the warmth of a bistro.
His and Hers BathroomThe bathroom is one of the most personal places in the home. It's also the place frequented by everyone in the family, making it difficult to find a look that will appeal all the way around. With a little creativity, it's possible to make one bathroom suitable for all parties involved. Think about using tiles with a pattern in an agreed upon color (something in between manly and girly) and enhancing it with a varied shade of the same color.
Matching Grout with TileSince tiles come in all types and textures, you've already got a starting point from which to work. The tile you select will dictate in some ways the color of your grout. A marble tile installation, for instance, might be perfect for a grout that matches the darkest color in the marble. How you blend grout color with tile will dictate the overall feel of the room. If you use dark tiles and accent with dark grout, you will create a very closed in atmosphere, whereas an extreme lighter version of the tile color for the grout will help alleviate the closed-in feeling and offer some relief to the pattern of the tiles. When you're choosing grout colors, determine if you want something that will contrast highly with your tiles or will complement the tiles by extending the color in a slightly different shade. Colors that complement work well with solid colored tiles, while patterns often benefit from a drastically different color than the overall tile itself.
