white grout/tile on shower floor: okay or problematic?
I am continuing to worry about picking shower floor tiles! :-) Our shower walls are going to be 4 X 10 white subway tiles, and we have selected an accent tile in stacked Azure blue glass (from the Ann Sacks "budget line.")
The sales associate at Ann Sacks highly recommended using frosted Azure 1 inch penny rounds or squares on the shower floor with white grout OR using a white stacked tile in Rice Paper or white with white grout. All of these tiles are beautiful, but my husband and I are very worried about how the white tile/white grout will hold up. In our previous house, we had white penny rounds (edged in a sort of greyish color) with white grout. Both the grout and the tiles got dirty looking, although friends suggested that the issue was with unsealed grout, hard water stains and/or maybe the wrong type of grout.
Do others have white grout and/or tile on the shower floor? If so, how has it held up? Any tips on particular types of grout to use that hold up better than others? Sealers to suggest? I welcome any input. If you have frosted glass on your shower floor, I also welcome your thoughts. We are hoping to order by Saturday for tax-free weekend in Massachusetts.
Thanks so much!
