Grout color

ev2012May 13, 2013

Looking for help with grout color. My bathroom tile, floor and wall, is French vanilla marble. The marble contains taupe and some hint of pink, but dominant shade is vanilla. What color grout would you recommend? Salesperson at tile shop advised to purchase white standard grout (TEC), but I am having second thoughts. I am concerned this may be too light and will get dirty. All else seems to be a bit off. Shades of vanilla by other brands are too yellow. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Antique white from TEC, or Pearl (?) from TEC might work.

Once you pick a colour, try it out on a sample board with some tiles or pieces of tile (ie at least four pieces to get a look at grout with four corners meeting). Best way to see if you are going to be happy with it.

TEC Pearl is very nice. I used it in my recent bathroom reno. Works well with my Lefka White porcelain tiles.

Who makes a bright white grout? I have been looking for sometime and they all look off white.

I'm sure I saw a grout called Vanilla recently. This one is called French Vanilla. Does that help?

Here is a link that might be useful: French Vanilla
