Change the Color of Tile Grout

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Time for grout talk with Carmella in Tennessee. What’s going on?

    CARMELLA: We installed a ceramic tile in our kitchen a couple of years ago and I picked a light gray. I mean the tile is actually sort of like a red brick color and I think I picked the wrong gray color. I’d actually like it to be a couple shades darker. And I was just wondering if there’s anything I could put on it to make it, you know, slightly darker.

    LESLIE: I know about pigments that you can add to grout but that’s usually in its wet form. There are – Tom, is there a paint?

    TOM: Well, I was thinking about concrete dyes. I’m wondering if you could add a dye to the grout because it really is a masonry product or a mortar product. I’m wondering if you could add a dye to it and darken it up to get the color that you want. It’s going to be a trial-and-error situation for sure. But there could be an opportunity there.

    CARMELLA: Concrete dyes.

    TOM: Mm-hmm.

    CARMELLA: OK. Thank you.

    TOM: You’re welcome, Carmella. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
