What are the most important grout width considerations for stone effect tiling?

There are a number of important considerations to take into account grouting your stone effect tiling. These considerations include:

  • Continuous tiling- if you are considering creating a continuous tiling effect, then you will need to make your grout lines very fine. In fact, these should not be visible at all. This gives the effect the floor or wall space is one large slab of stone, instead of individual tiles. This can be a stunning effect in both contemporary and traditional properties.
  • Floor tiling- for floor tiling in areas that may get wet, like the bathroom or kitchen, it can be an effective choice to use slightly wider grout lines. This is because the grout lines will allow the floor surface to create more friction, so that you are less likely to slip or trip on wet patches.
  • Tiling colour- you will also need to consider the colour of the grout that you use between tiles. This is because different grout colours can create different visual effects. For example, a contrasting grout colour can stand out, and help to accentuate the shape of the tiles, creating a stunning visual effect. In contrast, a similar grout colour can blend in to the tiles, reducing the visual distractions and focusing attention on the overall style.
