While a lot of people think of grout as nothing more than a filler between tiles, the truth is, grout is a smart way to take advantage of custom design ideas and to add a personal touch to every room of your house. Anybody who build homes, anybody who understands the basics of designs, and anybody who renovates homes for a living will take every detail of the process seriously, right down to the choice of grout. The combination of tile selection and grout can be one of the most important elements to consider in any home. The tiles you choose are a big part of the overall décor of the room, but the grout you choose can be used to accent, and even elevate, the appearance of those tiles.
Grout as a Design Element
Most people understand the fundamental purpose of grout. It fills in the gaps, helps keep the tiles in place, and keeps moisture from getting under the tiles, protecting the edges of the tiles from damage. If you're only seeing grout as a necessary component to tile projects for functional reasons, you're missing out on the chance to bring an artistic vision to your projects. Any room of your house, or even the exterior of your house, can be looked at as a canvas. The tile and grout can be the artistic medium. Think of tile and grout as the paint and take advantage of the myriad of possibilities you have to add unique style to any room in your house.
For those consumers who want to personalize their living space, creating rooms that reflect who they are as individuals is the goal. Something as fundamental as grout can help you do just that. A new trend in home design is the "modern" approach that many consumers are leaning toward. Out with the old, in with the new seems to be the attitude for a lot of homebuyers who are either looking for the perfect home or a home they can renovate so it is perfect. There are numerous ways to get that modern look with grout. One of the most popular choices is glitter grout
Glitter grout is simply grout with an additive or a pre-mixed glitter mixture that enhances the grout with a touch of glitter. This is an excellent way to add sparkle to any tile project, thereby giving it a more modern feel than you'd get if you were to use the same grout with no glitter added. The gentle reflective nature of the glitter in the grout is a great way to draw attention to your tiles by a product you'd be using anyway—grout. Glitter grout is by no means a traditional choice, but if you're going for something a little more modern, a bit more appealing, or something just downright different, glitter grout is a great way to enhance the features already present in the tiles you're using.
Unique Ways to Use Glitter Grout
There are a number of ways to use glitter grout to bring any area to life, indoors or out. Think about an outdoor patio area with mismatched dark stones in various shades. You could use glitter grout between those stones to add highlights to contrast nicely with the dark stone. Medium to dark gray or black stone with silver glitter highlights can give your patio a classic look with a touch of modern flair, especially around an outdoor pool area.
Glitter grout is a great way to bring a touch of sparkle to a kitchen backsplash, a shower, or any tile work in the bathroom. You can use glitter grout to give any room in your house a unique look customized to fit your personal taste and style. Various combinations of grout color and glitter can be used to accent a wall, add some sparkle to a swimming pool, or even add a bit of modern appeal to a garden walkway. There really is no end to how you can use glitter grout.
