About this deal

There are a lot of advantages and disadvantages to ready mixed grout. First, it’s already mixed and you don’t have to worry about doing it. It saves time! This is entirely up to you and the design aesthetic you are trying to achieve. Sometimes, a more basic tile like plain white subway tile can be elevated by using a contrasting grout color, and other times, if you choose a tile that reflects a lot of light and is beautiful by itself, you might want to use a neutral or even the same color grout. What color grout should you use with white tile? Honestly, it’s not awful or even really bad, it’s just noticeable in one small spot where water really hits it, but it doesn’t ruin the bathroom at all.

The negative is that ready mixed grout is more expensive. You are paying for that product to be mixed for you.But trust me on this. Giving you floor a good cleaning will prevent you from pulling stray hairs and fuzz balls out of freshly painted grout lines. Jordan’s tile guy, who has installed both Beverly and Arch and his team that does tile for his group of investors he works with, recommends Aqua Mix Sealer’s Choice Gold because it provides excellent protection and seals in just a few hours.

Choose a contrasting grout color: Use a contrasting grout color when you want to highlight the tile pattern or create a statement with your tile. For example, using a contrasting grout color works really well to highlight the a cool herringbone pattern. It also completely transforms a rather bland tile like a white subway. First and foremost, you want to make sure the grout is sealed after initial installation. You can do this project yourself by choosing the right grout sealer. We recommend going with Aqua Mix, which is the sealer most commonly recommended by tile professionals.This can be a daunting task if you’ve got a large area because you need to use a grout tool like this one. Speaking from experience, using this in both our laundry room and our guest bathroom it’s labor-intensive work.

A million times. They’re great both in a pinch or if you want a short-term solution and on a budget.Once you’ve sealed your grout, use a neutral ph cleaner to clean your grout and tile on a regular basis. Sealed grout should never be cleaned with anything else or it will cause the sealant to breakdown and eventually fail–leading to discolored grout. You can see in this photo above that this is not something we did the first time in our guest bathroom because it was our first time doing it, and there are several spots now that we have to redo before we seal everything. I vacuumed and mopped and found out that even that wasn’t really good enough. Maybe another round with the Swiffer would’ve helped, but I’m impatient and tend to just dive right into things. The answer to this question will be a total personal preference and depends on what you like in your space and the look you’re going for.
