When we built this house, I picked out the materials and finishes that I thought would be timeless and look good for years to come. And for the most part, I’d say I did a good job! There’s not much I would change when it comes down to the base materials. The floor tile direction and the grout color in this bathroom are not one of those things. I’ve been itching to change the grout color in here to make it feel more luxurious. Luckily, there’s a product for that. Well actually, there’s two products for that. But in this tutorial I am going to show you how to change the color of your grout using Grout Refresh.
Before I actually bought the Grout Refresh I was actually going to use these grout pens. However after further research, I determined that the pen would not be a good choice for floors durability-wise. The Grout Refresh has better reviews for durability over time on a floor. But I do think the pen could work for an area like a backsplash!
I want to note that I went from light to dark grout with the Grout Refresh. You can also go from dark to light though.
How To Change The Color Of Your Grout
Step 1: Clean your grout.
Properly clean your grout before applying the product.
Step 2: Apply the product.
Follow the instructions on the bottle. I found that the best coverage came from using a paint brush, since my grout lines were larger.
Step 3: Let it sit.
I let it sit on the grout for 5 minutes and then wiped it down with a cloth.
Step 4: Clean up.
After setting for 2 hours, I went back and wiped off any excess grout that had made its way onto the tile with a wet cloth.
For the Grout Pen
Use the pen like you would a marker and “color” on the grout. Then use a cloth to rub in the color and remove the excess product.
Look at how much more luxurious the floor looks!
