Choosing a grout color...


When we moved into our house...we decided to have the builders put linoleum flooring in all of our bathrooms and laundry room because we wanted to eventually tear it out and design it ourselves. I'm pretty sure we didn't realize just what we were getting ourselves into. However, now that it's all done I can honestly say I'm so glad we did it that way because it saved us a lot of money; and our flooring has our own "vision" built right into it.

This picture above is the tiling in our master bedroom. With a lot of figuring, puzzling and plan changing we finally came out with a design!  We got it all laid out and realized we didn't have enough big tiles, which would've been fine, except the place we bought it at was about two hours from us. Dandy, right?! So we improvised by using the extra penny tiles in the toilet room.

When it came down to the final decision of grout color I was in uncharted territory. I realized that choosing a grout color can effect the ENTIRE feel of your tiling...you can choose something that blends or that contrasts. If you make the wrong choice, well than all you have to do is rip it all out and start over (I wasn't about to even consider that option)...

I found a lot of helpful tips HERE on apartment therapy which pointed me in the right direction. We chose the color platinum (fourth one down from the top) since I wanted it to blend. Now every day when I walk on my floor, it just puts a big ole' smile on my face.

For centuries, they have been used to help people identify the name of a building while also emphasising the names of various brands or businesses located within that building.

  8. Wrought iron gates Melbourne are commonly used as home entrances by many homeowners. These gates can range in size and style from massive and imposing to small and charming garden gates. Typically, large gates are seen as driveway entrances. They are frequently surrounded by stone pillars on which they are mounted. Because wrought iron is so heavy, stone works well.

  9. If you are an individual with a family to care for, an emergency evacuation plan is always a good idea, as is having enough supplies stored away to support that plan. If you are away from home and in a large building with many people, there is usually an emergency exit marked on the back of the door. It is always a good idea to have one of these around the house.
