What color subway tile with Cambria Torquay

davegod75February 2, 2013


We are installing Cambria Torquay countertops and are having a hard time deciding on the specific color of white subway tiles to use. Right now we are considering the 3x6 ones from Home Depot which are "snow white"

Our cabinets are being painted "Simply White" from Benjamin Moore so we don't want all the whites to clash.

Any thoughts?

Grout is also another choice we have to decide on. I'm thinking something that matches the veining in the torquay of which there is tan and light gray.

When the counters are installed you will have a better idea of how the lighting in your kitchen plays off the counter and your cabinets.
When you choose a tile, you can make a sample board with the tiles and different grouts. Many GW members have done this and you can even have us weigh in and vote.
Sometimes monitors don't give the correct colors but we usually get a good idea of what is working and what isn't..
