Choosing The Best Grout Color

Whether you are installing a colorseal or a new grout, it is important to find the right color. We can create custom grout color seal colors.  This includes paint samples from stores such as Sherwin Williams.  

But what is easiest and the most reliable is to choose an existing grout color.  Mapei Grout Refresh is a water based grout paint you can find at Lowes or Amazon.  But a couple bottles of that for testing purposes in your home.    Mapei also has high quality brochures you can find at Lowes or Floor & Decor.  

For at home testing I reccommend black painters tape for white tile and white painters tape for black tile.   The juxtaposing tape color allows for more sensitivity and focus for your eyes to read the color best.  That said, you definitly can use standard blue painters tape as well.  

Since this application is temporary, you do not need to worry about cleaning grout prior. We will clean all your grout with a 2 step process if you choose to hire us.  

Mark off a small area in your home for testing.  I suggest somewhere near a window so you can experience the paint in natural sunlight as well as other light sources at night.   Paint at least 4 tiles in a square pattern and live with it for a week or so and continue to look at it at various times of the day and night.  You should eventually decide if any of the colors work for you. 

If not, you can go the route of seeking out unique and custom colors from paint stores.  So long as we have a sample, we can match it at the laboratory.
