Likewise, people ask, can you use caulk instead of grout?
Caulk is used to waterproof joints for space like bath tubs, showers, windows etc. Caulk is strong enough to adhere to tile surfaces without crevices. Caulk may shrink or dry out over time, which is why it shouldn't be used in large installations or as a replacement for grout.
Subsequently, question is, which is better caulk or grout? Grout is the better choice for wet areas. Though grout is more porous than caulk, it's best for tiled shower walls and floors. This is largely because of the way grout binds with backer board, the concrete material placed behind tiles.
Moreover, does sanded caulk look like grout?
Sanded caulk is not meant to replace grout. You need grout on a floor between tiles because it is hard and durable. You use sanded caulk in places where grout would crack because it is not flexible but where you still need something that looks like grout.
