Is Colourful Grout the Next Big Trend in Tiling?
See how grout in 7 eye-catching colours is making waves in bathrooms and kitchens
You may not know that grout also comes in a variety of other hues. Here are seven grout colours seen in European and Australian kitchens and bathrooms that are attracting attention.
Here’s another London bathroom featuring colourful grout. This time, lime green grout and classic white subway tiles cover the backsplash and the tub surround. The bright green walls help emphasize the green grout.
This Melbourne master bathroom highlights how colourful grout can help separate or unify individual tile shapes. Yellow grout makes the contrasting white subway tiles look dimensional and the matching yellow subway tiles look relatively smooth.
The walls in this London bathroom are covered from floor to ceiling in classic white subway tiles. White grout would have made for a monotone space, and dark grout could have felt too stark. The designer’s decision to use blue grout offers a happy medium and, with the lantern-style sconces, a subtle nautical feel.
This beautiful mid century-inspired home in Melbourne features lovely wood-panelled ceilings and walls, and a sleek terrazzo floor. The kitchen area includes white lower cabinets and a range wall above covered in matte black subway tiles. It’s the unexpected colourful grout, however, that really makes this kitchen stand out from the pack.
Warm-hued metallics like copper, brass and gold have been a popular material choice in kitchens and bathrooms for a while. Amplifying those metallics with a complementary grout can really make them shine. The orange grout in this London bathroom picks up the warm copper tones in the mirror, faucet and pendant lights.
The inside of a shower is another great spot for colourful grout. Rebecca Hadley, the owner of this London bathroom, couldn’t agree more. “There are so many different coloured grouts to choose from, I wanted to use them all!” she says.
