Simply Build It

It is possible to remove the grout and fill the joints with a silicone mastic Andy but this is a horrific job and almost impossible to keep neat. Also there is no guarentee that once done, the tiles themselves will not start lifting and even cracking as is common when floor tiles are laid on a floor which has not been properly strengthened.
