Does your home need a little more pizzazz? Then you’ll probably love the latest design trend: glitter grout! A recent Facebook post showing pictures of the sparkly product used to grout tiles has gone viral, and needless to say, people are throwing jazz hands in the air over this DIY idea.
A UK-based company called Staffordshire Silicone is behind the product featured in the Facebook post. Ready-made Grout Glitter is available in a range of colors including black, gray, blue, red and white with silver sparkles, and it runs about $23 a liter. It can be used on wall and floor tiles, is fully waterproof, and has antibacterial properties which will help stop stain or fungal build ups.
The company that sells Glitter Grout also sells a Grout Glitter additive (about $8 a package) which is essentially gold or silver sparkles that you can add to any cement-based or epoxy-based grout. It will certainly give your home improvement projects a fancier touch.
