    Default Recommend me a grout

    Can you recommend me a good grout, I have finally finished tiling my kitchen, (used BAL Bluestar) and will be grouting tomorrow. Really pleased with it, a hundred times better than the crap I had to rip off the wall by a so called 'professional' tiler.

    Its white grout and I would like ready mixed as I'm a tiling novice.

    Also the space between the worktop and the first row of tiles, do I fill this with silicone rather than grout? Also can you recommend a good silicone which will match the white grout.

    Cheers

    Don't be put off using a powdered mix. They are really easy to mix and are more cost effective. Powder in bucket slowly add water until it just hangs off the trowel. If I can do it, believe me anyone can I aint no expert but if you have done the tiling then mixing the grout will be childs play

    agree with above..
    when using powder mix for the first time,
    mix a small amount and grout a small area till you see how it goes off..

    Ready mixed grouts are a nightmare to use. Use the 'BAL Superflex' or at least 'BAL wall grout' (standard) to give a nice finish.
