Trashy Shorts: Grout

When the hubs and I decided to replace the linoleum in our kitchen with tile, every single one of our friends told us to make sure we used a dark grout because the lighter is a bitch to keep clean.

Although that's what we requested, the flooring guy ended up using a really light color grout.  We couldn't complain; "the flooring guy" was some dude my best friend was banging at the time and he offered to do it for free to get in good with her peeps. 

And anyway, it's like I told everyone who commented on the light grout when they attended a dinner party (read:  hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, and beer) that we hosted a couple of weeks later:

"Whatever, drama queens, because I've got a plan.  I'm just going to keep swooping a bunch of dirt in there so that it looks dark gray and nobody is the wiser."  And look, my plan is already working. Exhibit A:
I'm smart.


  1. That is the first sensible plan I've ever heard for grout. We have white (formerly white) in the bathroom shower upstairs and it makes me cry. We tiled the shower downstairs and I made my husband pick brown tile just so we could get brown grout. If he ever wanted to tile the kitchen floor? I would just buy 100 throw rugs and never let the tile show. Ever!!

    1. I am in love with the tile, but totally prepared for the dirt. It's just going to make it all look REALLY good. Haha
