Using Tile Paint? You Don’t Have To Regrout With This Handy Tip!

Tiling your bathroom, kitchen or utility room can be an incredibly expensive and time consuming job. That’s why tile paint was invented!

Yet did you know that you can repaint your tiles AND your grout?

You can achieve a great grout finish without having to regrout between the tiles by using the humble grout pen.

Regrouting between tiles is a nightmare! First you have to chisel out the old grout, then you have to carefully fill in the new grout, trying to achieve the finish that the professional tiler managed in the first place. For an amateur it can be incredibly frustrating work.

With the grout pen you retain the beautifully smooth, original grouting by covering it in a fresh layer of chalk based grout. Check out the results in the picture below!


You don’t have to keep the original colour either, if your new tile paint is orange why not go for a stylish grey? With six different grout pen colours to choose from, you can make your new tile paint really stand out.

If that wasn’t cool enough, the Rainbow Chalk Grout Pens contain anti mould and mildew properties to keep your grout looking fresher for longer, whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom or on the floor!

How To Use Your Grout Pens With Tile Paint

If you’re using the tile paint to cover all of the tiles then the results are just as awesome and the method is just as easy.

Just paint your tiles, wait for it to dry and apply the grout pen afterwards. There’s no need to worry about painting over the grout, just apply your pen when the paint is dry.

If you’re going for intricate designs instead of a blanket cover, the same method applies. Paint first, then grout pen.

The key take away is that you don’t have to be rich or a professional to get a fantastic looking kitchen, bathroom or utility room when you use some tile paint and a few grout pens.
