You could produce some stunning purple looks with LED lighting, which will make a living room look utterly up to date.

The shiny gold grout in the photo above demonstrates how well metallic shades work in a bathroom. This style stands out when matching the grout to bathroom fixtures. To make the metallic grout pop, aim for a light or muted shade of tile.
