Grout Color for TIle
1 Attachment(s)
Im getting ready to grout a tile job for my shower surround and wonder what color of grout would be suitable for this type of tile.

Can't really tell you. We went with a Gray color, which worked out great, but that was our personal preference.

If you go back to the tile store the guys there would be better to answer your questions regarding your color pick in tile because everybody has his/her personal taste on what color to use and they would have sample gout chips there.

I would go with something in the tan grouping.

How about "bone" -- Mapei?

I always say the darker the better -- so long as it's my job to clean it.

With that tile, my personal preference would be beige or a shade darker.

Maybe... but not grout is a total pain to deal with!!

My preference would be gray. Colored grout lines seem to overpower the tile visually and make each individual tile stand out like a checker board. Hope that makes sense and YMMV
