Yesterday I revealed my new fireplace hearth. My favorite part of the transformation has to be the orange grout! I toyed with the decision about whether or not to go bold with the grout and actually picked up a taupe option at first. Jon knew I kept thinking about the orange and he gave me the little nudge I needed to make it happen. So the taupe got returned and I did a little research of colored grout.
The number one suggestion out there for colored grout was Grout Shield.
I picked up a bottle for $20 that covers up to 250 sq ft. The best part was that they can color it any color under the sun. Seriously you just tell them what color you want from any of the paint vendors out there and they will match it. I went with electric orange by Benjamin Moore.
Instructions for how to apply it are here.
It was a little time consuming because you have to apply it with a paintbrush, but I found it to be sort of soothing since you kind of zone out while you do it. Not sure I would do a whole bathroom with it, but for small tile jobs it’s amazing. Best part is that I can re stain it whenever we decide to sell our house in case potential home owners aren’t in love with orange like me.
