The days are gone when grout was just something functional you used to hold tiles in place. Grout is a serious consideration in the overall aesthetic of not only the tile work itself, but for every room in the house as well as exterior landscapes. In fact, colored grout and tiles can be used to define entire rooms of a house. The Tile Doctor is a leader in the designer grout industry, offering the widest color selection of safe, non-toxic designer grouts in the industry. We believe in bringing you the products that let you run wild with your imagination and turn your home into a reflection of who you are. Let's take a look at some great ways you can use our Starlike Grout.
The Teal Feel:
The color teal was actually named after the color found around the eyes of a common teal, which is a member of the duck family. Teal is a beautiful color that can really highlight colors that are less explosive and bold. White or gray, for instance, can really stand out with teal highlights, making teal-colored grout an excellent choice. The great thing about teal is that you can find it in shades that range from a very light teal blue or green to darker variations. Teal is an excellent accent for more subdued colors and can work equally well on a kitchen backsplash, in the bathroom, or in other rooms. It's also a great color for outdoor tile work around a swimming pool because the color really highlights the aquatic aspect of the design.
Blue is an awesome color choice for grout when you've got tile work around a pool or sauna, in the shower, or even for an entire bathroom. Whether you go with a light blue and a very stark tile pattern, or you want to try combining blue tiles with a different color blue for the grout, you can come up with some great designs using blue as the focal point. This example shows a room designed with an old-school feel using a more modern color scheme. The tiles are off white and textured and the grout is a very light, almost powder blue. The tiles themselves would be plain without the grout bordering them and really making them stand out. The mirror and solid blue background on the backsplash are the focal point and the choice of color for the grout doesn't detract from the design at all. Instead, it makes a lovely foil for the design. Try to imagine this same design with a plain white or gray grout. It wouldn't create the same impact.
Shades of Dark and Light:
Now here's a drastic statement. The dark tiles in this bathroom create a very modern look, making the older model tub a cool feature. The use of a lighter colored grout really lets the dark tiles dominate, but it also helps create a break in the dark appearance. A darker grout here would not have worked. It could have made the room feel too claustrophobic. That's one of the really nice things about using color grout; you can come up with combinations of grout and tile that give a room a distinct personality. This could have been done in just the opposite, with light tiles and a darker grout, which would have given the bathroom an entirely different, but just as distinct, personality.
This design on the image below is extremely subtle, with the tiles taking over the design, set with a blue grout. The real highlights here come in the decorations you'll place in the room, which could be almost any color because the tiles are white, and the grout here is royal blue, but with the white tile, the color of the grout can become the color element that set the tone for the décor. The white tiles leave room for you to stage the bathroom any way you like. Regardless of the décor choices you make, this light tile and dark grout combo will work well with them.
The bathroom design on the image is outstanding. Using an orange patterned backsplash, bronze grout as an accent, dark tiles, and some gray and white to extend the presentation, this bathroom really makes a statement. The "old fashioned" tub with the bold and old color scheme of the grout and tiles gives you a harmonious balance between old and new. This is just one of the ways designer grout can be used to pull an entire room together and make a personal statement about you that leaves no doubt about your personality.
Don't overlook a really hot red when you're thinking about the color of the grout and the style of tiles you want to use. Red, particularly when it's bright, can be a pretty bold color to work with. Red grout used in conjunction with more subtle tile colors, like off-white or gray, can really turn your tile wall or backsplash into a room feature. Even if you want to go with bold marron or red tiles, however, you can still use lighter shades of red to offset darker tiles or tiles with patterns. Red grout and darker tiles can also be a great choice for a modern bathroom equipped with gold fixtures.
