The finished look of a tiling installation is down to the design and the tiles selected. There are, however, a significant number of grout lines also visible which can affect the final appearance. It is therefore important to grout carefully, getting the best result possible. Here are some tips to follow
NB: The time to firm is dependent on many parameters. The more porous a tile and/or substrate then the quicker the firming up will happen i.e. ceramic tiles will be able to be cleaned much earlier than porcelain tiles. Joint width will also play a part, with wider joints taking longer to firm. Finally, ambient conditions will have an effect. Cold and damp environments with poor ventilation will result in the grout taking longer to firm.
