clé recommends the use of mapei flexcolor cq grout and a 1/8" grout joint with this collection. 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.

any tips for installing the slate modernist mosaic?
we recommend a grout joint size of 1/8" with our clé basics slate. however, given that our modernist mosaic contains a mix of sizes, you may need to vary the grout joint slightly as you go in order to accommodate for size variation between pieces and also to have the pieces fit smoothly in the overall pattern footprint.
