How-To: Recolor Grout, WITHOUT Re-grouting!
One of the worst things about white grout is that over time, like most white things, it begins to yellow due to dirt and grime. To create a fresh bathroom look, contrast stark white / light tiles with dark grout. STOP, do not spend your time re-grouting. Instead, use this quick tutorial to RECOLOR your grout for an easy (cheap) and updated look.
Before, the white grout made the room look yellowed and dirty. After, the contrast speaks to modern, defined lines and cleanliness.
There are only a few materials necessary for this DIY project. The most important is Grout Renew, this is what gets you the color you're going for. Other helpful materials are: a soft bristle tooth brush, an old rag/wash cloth.
This is a section of the tile and grout before cleaning and recoloring.
Step 1: Clean the grout and tile thoroughly. Use the tooth brush to get into all the grooves.
Step 2: Apply a small amount of Grout Renew to the center of each grout joint. Use the tooth brush in a back and forth motion to spread the substance all over.
