Tile adhesive and grout colour: A surprisingly significant design element26th February 2019

When you’re making a decision on the right set of tiles for your kitchen or bathroom redesign, it’s important to carefully consider the various colours, textures, patterns and finishes before making a final decision. Though significant, tiles are not the only important consideration; the colour of your adhesive and tile grout can also have a major effect on the overall design of a particular room.

Match, complement or contrast the tile

It’s important to find the right harmony between the tile and adhesive. If you’re looking for a simplistic and clean design, choosing plain tiles in a neutral shade with a matching adhesive can be a wise option. Grey is tremendously popular right now in the interior design world, and you can choose grout that completely matches your tiles to deliver a seamless finish. You may also want to decide on two complementary colours, or contrasting tones, but whatever pairing you decide on, it’s important to understand that each shade will have a different effect on both the tile pattern and the look and feel of the room.

Dark grout is big in bathrooms

Dark grout is incredibly popular right now, especially for bathrooms. Black is a sensible colour as it is relatively low maintenance, concealing dirt, whilst it doesn’t suffer from discolouration, as is the case with very light shades. Darker shades like deep grey, charcoal and black are also rising in popularity because they can enhance the brightness of the ties, making white tiles look cleaner for longer.

White adhesive - number one for a bright, clean and fresh look

As discussed, bright tile adhesive and grout will require a little care and attention when it comes to cleaning, however, with a high quality product like BAL White Star Plus, you’re guaranteed an enhanced white colour that can stand the test of time, delivering a clean white finish for years to come.
