Two really important words: GLITTER GROUT

Holy crap Glitter Grout!
Holy crap Glitter Grout!

Thank you to Offbeat Homie Deirdre who contacted me and said "Two words. Two really important words: GLITTER GROUT." And I stopped everything I was doing to respond with "tell me more." And she did, y'all. She told me more…

Seems like you can get them as an additive or pre-made grout. And, in my heart I feel it could range from '70s dream kitchen to mermaid bathroom, from a unicorn-themed mosaic table, to a TARDIS blue and sparkly starlight grout-ed garden path.

And then she linked me to the Staffordshire Silicones Glitter Grout section and the photos blew my mind.

Let's enjoy some glitter grout together shall we…

I love the look of glitter grout paired with this leaf-y tile. Kind of ends up looking like retro wallpaper. (Image courtesy of SarahAkwisombe.com

Not sure how I feel about pink glitter grout on pink tile, but I'm glad it exists.

This is my favorite look: Silver Glitter Grout with these cool pebble tiles. I would totally do this in my future home's shower.

You can even use it in mosaics, like this flower pot from Etsy seller Myhobbyismosaic

What would (or are) you going to use glitter grout for!? I'm definitely scheming future glittery home tiling plans…

  1. I was so ready to get this for my bathroom – then I found out it was 10x more expensive than regular grout. SO disappointing.

      • There's places online where you can buy pigments and various kinds of mica. You could mix it with cheap grout and save a bundle.

  2. We used the Bostik dimentions for our shower (hint: the silver is sold out everywhere, we finally had to settle for Moonshine after two months of hassle and cancelled orders, argh!) and I wish we'd known about the super glittery one at the top instead. It came out pretty cool, but you can barely see the sparkle 🙁 Plus, it was super expensive! Oh well, there's still a little bit of sparkle 🙂

  3. Now to just convince my husband for the pebble with glitter grout when we redo our bathroom. It needs to be done but in about 2 years we'll be renting this apartment to someone else. Sigh. We own our apartment building but knowing we need to save up for a bigger place so many decorating ideas are just put on hold.

  4. You can also get this stuff in GLOW IN THE DARK!

    Also remember you're not just paying for the glitter. This is epoxy-based grout instead of the yucky, crumbly stuff you're used to. It lasts longer, resists mildew and is easier to clean.

    Unfortunately it doesn't do any better against hard water (my nemesis in bathroom cleaning) but you CAN use products like CLR to clean it, which might dissolve normal grout.
