There are millions of ways to personalize your stone or tile flooring.
In addition to color selection, pattern selection, and grout color selection, you get to be creative with the width of the grout lines between tiles. There are a few guidelines when it comes to achieving the perfect look.
Grout Line Width Tips
The smallest grout lines (less than 1/8 inch) are ideal for perfectly uniform tiles with precisely defined edges.
Tumbled, chiseled and punched tile cuts contain slight variations in both shape and size. This means larger grout lines (3/16 inch) are necessary to achieve a polished look without emphasizing tile variations.
Grout lines that are too large in comparison to your tiles will take the focus away from your new gorgeous floor and leave you with a grid-like appearance.
The wider the grout line, the more noticeable it will be when your tile installation is complete. Large grout lines also require more attention when cleaning and maintaining.
Be sure your grout lines accent and highlight the beauty of your flooring, rather than distract from it.
