Beside this, why is my grout color uneven?
The main cause for this variation in color is uneven drying of the Portland cement in the grout. There are jobsite conditions and factors which create the conditions for uneven drying and improper cement hydration. Like colored grout, this is mainly due to the uneven drying of the cement.
Furthermore, should grout be lighter or darker than tile? Going darker or lighter with the grout, to add more or less contrast, will make the tile pop more and more. A soft gray just a few shades darker than the tile is a popular choice because it highlights a tile pattern without shouting for attention.
Besides, can grout be darkened?
Many people opt to whiten the grout, but you also can darken in between the tile with grout stain. Coloring the grout will hide dirt that won't come out, and grout stains come in different colors to complement your tiles. Darkening grout is an inexpensive way to alter the look of your tiles without replacing them.
How do you fix uneven grout color?
Removing the original sealant and resealing with a color-enhancing grout and tile sealer can help darken the grout by one shade. Applying a water-based grout tint can help correct or change uneven grout color. A lacquer thinner can lighten grout and help disguise uneven color.
