There are many grouts to choose from, just make sure to use a SANDED grout with tile like ours which has larger areas of exposed grout. We're fans of MAPEI's Keracolor line in either White or Biscuit, which is readily available at Lowe's and other retailers. You can find the store nearest you here.

If you're not sure which grout color to use, you can try it first by applying grout into the face of one of our decorative tiles as a test. Be sure to let it dry completely to see how the color looks. 

Mixing grout is easy, just add water and mix to your preference - We recommend mixing slightly thicker, like peanut butter.

All that's left to do is apply it! Work in sections, stopping when the grout starts to set up to clean up the excess with a sponge. You'll know it's ready when the tile starts to develop a slight haze. Make sure you wipe it down before it's all the way dry! (We've made THAT mistake before).
