Choosing The Right Grout Colour For Your Porcelain Paving Project
When selecting the right grout for your Select Stone porcelain paving project, colour may play an important factor in your final decision. Grout and jointing fill the gaps between the slabs, so you will want to choose a colour that compliments your chosen tile to give an overall polished finish.
When making your decision, it is worth either thinking about colour matching your grout to your tile or surroundings for a seamless blend, or selecting a colour contrast to make a bold statement.
Colour Matching The Select Stone Porcelain Paving
If you’re looking to create a traditional look, with a seamless feel to it, a popular method of choosing grout colour is to colour match it to your tile. This is a safe choice which will have a timeless and clean finish.

Colour Matching Guide
We’ve put together a chart which outlines the closest colour matches of each of our tiles to a recommended grout type.
It’s worth noting that Fuga Flex CH is the best choice for colour matching your tiles to a grout as close as possible, simply because they have the most colour range available.
But we’ve also included options from Flowpoint and Premjoint, as although these won’t be as close as a match as Fuga Flex CH, they will still be very close. If you have any concerns please test or view in-situ before purchase.

Colour Matching Other Exteriors
Another way to decide on the colour of your grout is to look at other exteriors and furnishings in your garden and match with them. For example with the image above, whilst the Aravali Dark grey tiles match the exterior door paint, the grout matches the grout of the brick exterior wall - which ties the paving area nicely to its surroundings.
If you’re looking for a more contemporary look in your garden, we suggest choosing a grout that contrasts with the colour of our porcelain Select Stone tiles. The contrast of colour creates a bold, striking effect that ‘frames’ the individual tiles.
How your paving will be used may also affect your colour choice, for example a light grout being used in a busy public walkway may start to look noticeably dirty more quickly than a darker grout.
Choosing the colour of your grout is one of the fun parts of planning your paving project, it can really make a difference with the style you want to portray - whether you want to take a more traditional or contemporary route.
When selecting your grout you also will want to consider the type of grout, as well as the colour - you can learn more about the grout types we recommend here.
