Grout color choice for Akoya Bone Tile used for foyer
I have chosen my foyer tiles that are being installed tomorrow. I chose Akoya Bone Porcelain Tile (not slippery and too me looks like real travertine stone despite being a little more in price than the tile I was going to use) that has the coloring of the lightest Lowe's Rialto Beige lot that I loved but was sold out and their darker tiles (their new lots are less bone and more beige with more of the gray lines that are nice but I just liked the look of the lighter Rialto Beige tiles) are a little darker than wanted for my foyer areas.
The Wayne Tile store did not have the Mushroom Grout I loved that I was going to use with the Rialto Beige tiles before I got fed up with the mismatched lots and returned everything. I have my long story posted in another thread.
I wanted the TEC Cornsilk color that is close to the Latricrete Mushroom grout but the store salesguy told me today that it would dry lighter and be too yellow. I am using the TEC Sanded Grout AccuColorXT Next Generation Grout that is stain, mildew, mold and crack resistant and self seals. I do not see yellow in the paint chip at home but due to the fluorescent lights in the store, it had a slight yellow cast. The store sales guy convinced me to go with the Antique White that looked like a greenish gray to me and he kept telling me it dries lighter and will match but I do not like gray grout.
Anyone know how the AccuColor dries compared to the sample chips and if the color is that different? Anyone have any idea what grout color would look nice with the Akoya Bone tiles?
I can't believe that finally my foyer is getting done. All the other installers are booked for weeks but this installer is going away and had some days available before he left and had the time right now to do the job and I want it done.
I had nothing but problems with my first installer not showing up 6 times! I am glad I hired someone new yesterday who picked me up today to get the tiles, grout and glue and is starting tomorrow.
I am happy with my tile choice and my installer choice but not sure about the grout color that will be done on Thursday since the damaged engineered wood floors are being removed tomorrow and cleaned up and then the tile is going to be glued down. My new installer feels he will finish on Thursday. Hence, if I want to change grout colors, I must do so tomorrow before the bag is opened up.
What color grout will look best with the Akoya Bone tile in the AccuColorXT grout? If anyone has this tile and used a different grout, what color did you use and do yo have any pictures?
