You shouldn't have to seal it, but read the grout installation instructions to be sure.
thanks I will
Seal the grout. It will make it a lot easier to clean if something splashes on it.
Definitely seal the grout no matter where it's installed. A lot of people don't do this and it gets dirty and grimy over time.
Hi Colleen, I would definitely seal the grout, especially in the kitchen. Grout sealer can be found at most hardware stores and you apply it with a paintbrush and wipe off the excess from the tiles. So it's an east job that well worth the effort
