If this sounds right up your street, then we’re here to tell you all about how to make glitter grout work in your home. From where to use it, to mixing and applying it, you’ll find all you need to know right here. Where to use glitter grout? For best results, the whole tub of Mapei Kerapoxy Design Grout should be mixed at the time of usage. Part mixing is possible, however you would need to weigh out the materials and the required dosage using calibrated digital scales, to make sure the proportions of product used are correct. Before starting the process of adding new grout to tiles, any existing grout or loose materials must be removed from the tile joints. This provides a blank canvas for adding new grout and ensures maximum effect of the new glitter grout. Using glitter tile grout to add some flare to your tiles can be a brilliant way to transform typically practical wall and floor tiles into an attention-grabbing feature. You will begin to see the grout material begin to dry on the tile surface; this means that the tiles are ready to be washed down to reveal the dry glitter grout.

Tile grout is only there to fill the gaps between the tiles and stop the dirt getting in, so any old cheap and cheerful material will do, won’t it?" Although many grouts are suitable for use with ceramic tiles, other considerations need to be borne in mind with natural stone. Water used in the preparation of the grout may migrate into the stone through the edges, leaving a ‘picture frame’ effect visible on the surface. The use of a specially formulated rapid setting grout – like Mapei Ultracolor Plus - virtually eliminates the risk of this type of staining. For Industrial EnvironmentsAnd of course, don’t overlook using glitter grout for tiles on the floor either. When using it you aren’t limited to a specific style, regardless of whether you are working with a space or trying to create a space that is more vintage, modern, contemporary, or even something rustic. Once the grout is well mixed, it’s time to add the Mapei glitter! You can add 1-3 sachets of the glitter, but we recommend 2 sachets for the best glitter results! Empty the sachets into the tub of grout and work well into the mix, folding in the glitter with a spatula. On a slow setting, use the mechanical stirrer to mix together the two components of the grout. This should be stirred for 3-4 minutes to combine well into a smooth paste. Imagine your tiles surrounded by grout lines that are sparkling and shimmering in the light. Glitter grout will turn your installation into a glamorous and glistening display but you will need to know the basics things before getting started. There are actually two types. The first is really a glitter grout additive. This variety is usually sold in bags and is mixed with your standard grout before it is applied. Glitter grout looks particularly pretty used alongside shiny glass mosaics, quartz tiles and tiles with a polished finish, but in truth you can use them with any tile you choose.

Test the grout on a small area or edge of a spare tile to see how the glitter looks before committing to sealing the full area Ensure the tiles are firmly fixed and all grout joints are clean. With a flexible plastic trowel, press the grout into the joints to compact firmly. Work at a 45 Degree angle across the joints. Use the trowel to remove all excess grout from the tiles. Use a slightly dampened scouring pad with the rough side down to remove all material from the surface of the tiles. Frequently wash the scouring pad. We're finding that a dark grey grout is particularly popular with a classic white metro tile,' says Sian O'Neill. 'This shade not only disguises marks, but gives a defined edge to the tile, creating a bold, geometric look that highlights its shape.'A Glimmering Overload: If you would like as much sparkle as possible you can double down by using tiles that have a glittery or shimmering effect themselves. Some glass tiles are actually made with glitter inside the body of the tile. Mother of pearl tiles are another reflective way to go and are famous for their natural iridescence.

For a cool finish pearl white, silver and grey could be the way to go. Or why not use warm rose gold, sand gold or even a funky purple glitter grout to create vibrant colour contrasts with your tiles? How to make glitter grout Allow grout to set slightly before cleaning grout residue to prevent pulling it out from the joints Applying glitter grout doesn’t require any special techniques, as it can be applied the same way you would a standard grout using a grout float to push it into the tile joints and a damp sponge to clean off any excess residue.Tile grout is a dense fluid which is used for bonding and sealing the joints between tiles. First, grout is used for fixing your wall or floor tiles to the desired surface, then the grout is used to seal the spaces in between the tiles. Once it dries, it'll form a fluid concrete that will effectively keep these tiles in place. When it comes to how to make glitter grout for tiles, you also need to think about how much glitter you add to the grout mixture. This is obviously a personal preference, but just keep in mind that a small bag of glitter grout additive can go a long way. We’d suggest adding a little bit at a time rather than bunging the whole bag in, as once it’s been added you can’t take it away. Tips for applying glitter grout

You’re Not Limited With Materials: Glitter grout happens to work very well not just with porcelain and ceramic but different types of natural stone, pebble tiles, metal, and especially glass. The translucence of glass makes it an excellent pairing that is widely used with glitter. Remove excess grout from tile surface before it sets with the edge of the float at a 45 degree angle

Apart from completing an installation, tile grout provides an appealing aesthetic look, capable of making a bold design statement or creating a subtle effect. It also accommodates manufacturing tolerances within tiles, forms a compressible joint to alleviate minor stresses within the installation (not to be confused with movement joints, which are still necessary) and provides a neat transition between adjoining tiles. Using the mechanical stirrer on the same slow setting, mix the glitter slowly into the grout mixture to ensure the glitter is dispersed evenly throughout the product. Apply glitter grout to tiles
