One of the easiest ways to make a statement in any kitchen or bathroom is with a bold tiled backsplash. It’s practically an essential for nailing any Pinterest-perfect and TV-worthy kitchen space. But since the kitchen and bathroom are the most expensive projects in the house, that tile can really stretch your budget. Colored grout might be just the thing to add some serious personality to your space, without blowing your entire budget. If you’re in the mood to add some personality to your tiled rooms, here are nine stunning spaces to show you the way to do it with grout.


1. Sunshine Yellow: This mini white square tile is combined with a thick yellow grout, giving it an edgy urban look. If you’re feeling extra bold, continue the yellow grout up the wall with larger tile for a bright, sunny space. Are you sold yet? (via Design Sponge)


2. Hot Pink: Now that you know hot pink grout exists, it’s obvious you need it in your life, like, yesterday. Instead of painting your cabinets bubble gum pink, try a pink grout backsplash to get a cleaner, more minimal look. Or just go all out and paint the cabinets pink too… We never met a colorful kitchen we didn’t like. (via Domino)


3. Bright Orange: A bold grout looks great with square tiles, but it really highlights the curves of these lantern-shape tiles. Instead of re-grouting your entire kitchen backsplash, give white grout a brand new look with tinted grout sealer. Oooh, magic. (via HGTV)


4. Cool Blue: White tiles are a great choice for small spaces, but when you combine them with white or gray grout, it can start looking pretty stark. Go bold with a bright blue grout for a retro look that’s not too over the top. (via The Design Sheppard)


5. All Black Everything: Do you dare to put black in your kitchen? These little matte black tiles combined with black grout create a striking look in this Scandinavian-style kitchen. (via Domino)


6. Glitter Gold Grout: This bathroom features a tile backsplash wall with an elegant gold grout. The glittering motif is repeated in the hardware, lighting and mirror. Talk about instant sophistication. (via Tile Mountain)


7. Chartreuse Green: It’s hard not to love this bright grout and geometric tile combo. Here, a touch of almost-neon green injects this space with much needed color while still looking edgy and modern. (via Ecoshower)

8. Retro Shades of Green: Think outside the backsplash when it comes to kitchen tile. Obviously, you don’t have to tile your entire kitchen like this Scandi designer did, but making tile a statement piece will take your style game straight to the top. (via Sight Unseen)


9. Blue + Green: The simplest color palettes are often the most striking. Bright teal tiles and dark green grout come together and serve as the focal point in this dining area, balanced against dark cabinets and plenty of metallics. (via Vogue Living)
