Where the grout is concerned, you could use a normal with your texture. 
Example:

plane {
   y, 0
   texture {
     pigment {rgb 1}
     finish {
       ambient 0
       diffuse 0.6
       specular 0.6
       roughness 0.1
     }
     normal {
       granite 0.5
       scale 0.0001
     }
   }
}

If you are using version 3.7 and up, I suggest you always use ambient 0 
(or leave it out of the finish). You can vary the strength of the 
granite normal by increasing/decreasing the value. The scale in the 
example is set for micronormals. Play with it by increasing/decreasing 
the value until you are satisfied.
