Keeping Tile and Grout Restoration of Fading Colors More Enjoyable


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Crafts
You can experiment with color combinations in grout by means of mixing small batches, and permitting them to dry. Then you can now compare the colors. Use as close as you have to the original color, and a lighter and a darker match.

Grout discoloration, though not normal, is not an uncommon occurrence. You may find that it has taken on a blotchy look, or perhaps the color has faded over time. In other cases, an unfortunate homeowner may find the grout to be uneven in color immediately after a new installation.

Have you ever considered how beautiful your tile would be with a different color grout? Now your grout can now be restored to its original color or change the color, using a specialized process called color sealing also know as grout staining. Color sealing creates a durable layer of stain proofing grout protection to the grout preventing dirt and spills from being able to soak into the grout. This means that any future dirt and spills wipe away easily and, with minimal cleaning your grout look new for years to come.

Matching grout colors is a lot more of an art than a science. The use, age and grout cleaning products used could potentially cause it to become discolored, and if you use any of the original batch to fill gaps, the colors won't match. In case you wish to match grout that has discolored, you will have to experiment and eliminate non-matches. You'll need to remix and compare every time you do that, to get the best match. Grout may also change its color as it dries, hence let any grout dry prior to making a final comparison.

Initially, you'll have to clean your current grout with an 02 bleach product prior to trying to match colors. Purchase a grout sample chart from a local home improvement store and pick out the grout color you used in the beginning, as close as you can. Make sure you use only dry grout color for measuring as well as adjusting colors.

Make a handy sample board to enable you to compare the grout colors side by side. Mix a batch of the original color, or use lighter and darker colors mixed, at all times using the lightest color as dominant in every mixture. Apply this sample to a board, and allow it to dry all the way prior to comparing the color to your existing grout colors .

Continue mixing your different colors and apply newer colors to the board so that you can easily compare it to the grout you have at the moment. The best choice is to begin with the lighter colors, adding smaller amounts of neutral and darker colors. Ensure that you track how much color you are adding, so that you can duplicate it when you find a match. Mix in your colors and compare until you're as close to a match as possible.

You may have specialist assistance by getting help in your color mixing from someone who knows the process of mixing colors. This may be a craftsperson or an artist, or perhaps a local tile layer with a great deal of experience. It's also possible to order a custom color of grout, and use that for the entire area.

In case you would rather go the route of removing grout and replacing it with your own color choice, the probabilities are truly limitless. The basic actions of mixing and using grout are the same, whether you're using colors or you aren't. A custom color will add extra warmth and character to your tile.
