Subway Tile With Glamour Grout Backsplash


We've been brainstorming how to modernize our kitchen while making it brighter, cleaner, and still have some fun personality. I discovered Glamour Grout by Stainmaster and it brought everything we wanted together.

For reference, here's the before shot. It was a very blah space.

We started by taking off the black lip at the back.

We prepped the wall and put up our subway tile. (Please check out my blog post for full details!)

We chose Glamour Grout in sapphire + gold glitter. We mixed it up, added the glitter, and then mixed some more.

I have never been as excited to see something go up as I was for this grout.

I completely fell in love with my backsplash as we were wiping off the excess grout. The bright blue and the gold glitter had me grinning from ear to ear.

We used this section of counter as our test patch, but we love how it turned out so much that we're carrying it through to the rest of the kitchen. Our backsplash has the modern and clean look we wanted, with that pop of color I love and the glitter just sparkles. It gives our kitchen personality.

    How did you compensate for the electrical covers no longer level with the backsplash (when you put the plastic covers back)⁉️

      Go to hardware store they have plastic extenders that go over screw holds to lift plate even with wall

    Did you seal it afterwards so it stayed clean while wiping down?? I would love to do this in our kitchen, especially by our oven, but it gets greasy!!!!

      Roosters are pretty much every color. Red would be awesome! Any shade of orange, yellow, teal, green. Brown is a neutral so you could use any color, just depends on your preference.

    I'm going to try Turquoise grout. I work at Lowe's & we sell these small subway tiles that are really cute!
