 Effect of the joint colour
The choice of the mortar colour is a matter of taste
  Your choice of mortar colour will significantly influence the look of your finished project.
The colour you chose is en- tirely a matter of taste, although there are general rules of thumb to help guide your choice, depending upon the final ef- fect you hope to achieve.
Generally the greater the con- trast in colour between the brick and the mortar, the more the shape and colour of the bricks are highlighted. Greater contrast will also increase the liveliness of the structure.
Conversely, matching mortar to brick colour will enhance uniformity in the overall fin- ish and create an impression of a large flat surface.
There are a vast range of mortar colours available, in a full range of shades.
