Need grout color for steam shower-marble with white subway

phiwwyJune 27, 2012

We are doing a marble mosaic accent panel in our new steam shower (basketweave, white marble with dark gray marble dots lining each piece of the basketweave) and a large format 5x13 matte subway tile on the rest of the shower, with gray slate (looking) floor. Currently the plan is to use white grout, but i've read on here that it won't stay white for long. would you suggest gray instead? also, i've heard adding epoxy to the grout is advantageous, but that it could add a yellow tinge to white grout. thanks!

there is a new product made by HB Fuller under the TEC brand it's called Power Grout, does not change colors, does stain, nor need sealing, I tried to stain it with a marker and it would not stain. in my opinion it is the best grout made to date worth looking into. good luck on your project

Very pretty. I would do a light gray -- you do not have that many grout lines so you won't see much grout. Laticrete's Silver Shadow is a nice light gray that would blend well with that mosaic.

I second silver shadow. We used that on our shower with 6 x 18 tiles and hex tiles both in white venatino. Looked perfect.
