Changing the Colour of Grout on a Slate Tiled floor
The floor was now looking dull and the grout had also discoloured so time to call in Tile Doctor to breathe new life into the tile and grout.After twenty minutes it was worked into the slate and grout using a low speed bonnet machine fitted with a black scrubbing pad with the excess extracted using a wet vacuum.Once done the whole floor was then neutralised with more water to ensure there was no trace of cleaning product remaining on the floor prior to sealing.Once the colourant has dried the floor was given a further clean with Tile Doctor Neutral Cleaner which is an everyday cleaning product we recommend for sealed floors.Source: Slate Floor Tile Cleaning
Black Tile In The Laundry Room
See our new black tile in the laundry room!When Todd and I were dreaming up the design plan, the one thing we were both really excited about, was the installation of black tile in the laundry room.We went with the Montaulk Black 12″x24″ Stone Tile.We couldn’t be happier with how it looks…Black Tile In The Laundry RoomNeedless to say, we love the outcome…There’s so much variation in the texture on the tile.I wanted the grout lines to be as seamless and minimal as possible, so we matched the color as close to the tile as possible.

The Only Way We Got Our Stained Grout White Again
Then we finally find THE SOLUTION to making the grout look white and clean again!The crisp white grout lines play off the white trim and make the whole space feel newer and cleaner.I gave nearly every method under the sun a shot to make that grout look clean.I went with a thin craft brush instead because I had way more control (read: way less mess on the tile surface).I’d LOVE to help anyone else dealing with this supremely annoying issue so we can all do the clean grout end zone dance together.
The Three Bears Go Back In Time for the Right Color Grout
But the three bears knew, even without a rhyme, that a darker grout color is the only "correct" historical color.So when it came time to select the grout color they wanted, the bears jumped into the bear family truckster and headed out to the Tile Shop to do a little grout color selecting.Their initial intent to select a dark grout somehow morphed into the selection of a grout color that was second lightest on the grout color chart.Having now wasted half of the day they had hoped would have been spent grouting, the bears had established a grout color that was too light, and a grout color that was too dark.They'd already seen too dark, they'd already experienced too light, perhaps, just perhaps, this grout color would be juuuuuiissssstttt right!
Porcelain Wood Tile Grout Color. Light or Dark?
We are building a home and have decided on porcelain wood tile for our entire first floor - Daltile Saddle Brook, color Walnut Creek.The grout options the builder has provided through Customs don't truly match the variation of colors on the tile and I'm left with either Saddle Brown #59 or Charcoal #60 to choose from - with a 3/16" grout line.I would like the grout to fully blend in to give more of that hardwood-look, however, due to the color options I'm left with, there will be contrast.I'm leaning towards the black as it looks rustic and mimics hardwood more than the lighter one but concerned that the 3/16" grout line will be too thick.The grout samples below are 1/4".
