clé has also partnered with fornace brioni to create a collection of traditional terracotta designed for the everyday. the resulting traditional cotto rosato and cotto grigio tiles are a tribute to fornace's roots which will lend any space a minimalist but warm rustic look.
what grout joint size, type, and color do you recommend?
clé recommends the use of mapei flexcolor cq grout for this collection. we recommend a 3/8" grout joint for cotto variegato, cotto rosato, cotto grigio, bibiena and cotto tivoli.
Grout color selection is always up to our client and/or their design professional. However, clé is often asked for our opinion on best grout selections for our tiles. And due to the large array of grout colors that are now available, clé would like to offer this general guideline on a foolproof grout color selection for any of your clé tiles.
- First, have your professional tile contractor complete your tile installation, except for the grout portion.
- Next, when ready to grout, ask your contractor to bring ALL grout color charts from his preferred grout manufacturers, for your review.
- Lastly, choose a time of day when you are most pleased with the lighting in your space (either natural lighting, installed lighting or a blend of both). During that lighting and time of day, select the grout color that best matches your tile selection.
Note that the full Mapei Flexcolor CQ color catalogue contains 40 colors to choose from. Visit the Mapei website to view.
Why do you suggest i order at least 15% more than my measurements?
Industry standard suggests adding at least 15% overage due to tile cuts, potential breakage, or future repairs.
