  • It's fun to say and it makes your kitchen splashback look double disco but is it called glitter grout or grout glitter?

    We’ve seen glitter wallpaper take over bedrooms across the land, watched as disco balls moved off the dance floor and into the dining room and now you can add a dusting of sparkle to your kitchen or bathroom.

    The product packs in the light-reflecting material between tiles for a seriously sparkly effect – and its already got tens of thousands of fans on Facebook. But the thing everyone wants to know is: it called glitter grout or grout glitter?

    Well, we can answer that. If it’s ready mixed and good to go then it’s glitter grout (you can buy a tub for around £19) but if you’re more of a hands on sort of decorator then you can pick up a bag of grout glitter for less than £7 for 100g.

    This offers all sorts of possibilities for fun colour combinations, we love these pink tiles and red grouting with added silver sparkle.

    Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit it is one of the more playful kitchen trends to be doing the rounds. But if pink AND glitter is really too much then maybe this industrial style kitchen will change your mind.

    Here the brave designer has gone for the disco double whammy and combined the glitter grout with mirror tiles to create the shinest kitchen splashback we’ve ever seen.
