Since almost all tiles will need to be grouted finding the right grout is key to getting a great looking backsplash.
Grouting Your Backsplash Tile
Just like there are many different varieties of tile there are also many different styles of grout as well. Choosing the perfect color for your backsplash means you’ll need to determine if you should choose a lighter or darker color for the grout. Darker colors seem to really make the tile stand out. Darker colors can also give it more of a shadow effect as well. While lighter colors tend to blend in more. This is especially true for lighter tile. Even for smaller tile you may want to look at some samples of both light and dark grout to ensure the best outcome for your home improvement project.
Choosing the grout color for your backsplash is pretty simple. Sometimes you want the color to match, other times you want it to be lighter or darker than your backsplash. The choice is ultimately up to you, and each option provides a slightly different overall look!
