grout color for carrara basketweave w/grey dots

Posted by boymom (My Page) on

The floor is basket weave carrara with grey dots... the walls are Daltile Rittenhouse subway in Arctic white. I want a white grout for the subway, but I'm thinking something a big grayer for floor grout.

First off, is that acceptable (two grout colors)?

If so, second, what color white grout for the subway?

Third, what color grout for the carrara basketweave? Would love to see photos!

Thanks so much.

I did Silver shadow with my carrera basket weave with gray dots. A very light gray. It looks great! Also used it with the artic white Daltile too, so can't provide a white grout recommendation.

Thanks so much. What brand is "silver shadow?" My contractor is bringing his grout samples tomorrow - so far no idea what brand he uses.

The brand is Laticrete.

MAPEI also makes a silver 27, or a warm gray 93

I like Laticrete silver shadow with carrara. White grout on the walls will look fine, even if you choose grey for the floor.

I would love to see photos of the carrara basketweave with any shade of grey grout. I've got my contractor's samples, and there are plenty of grey choices (I forget the brand). Will definitely do white on the subway, so I'm wondering if doing the same white on the floor would be a good option. Or does that mask the "basketweave" effect?

you should do a google search for marble basketweave floor or go to houzz.com. They have a ton of inspiration photos and you can specifically search for basketweave floors.

I hope that helps.

I will try and take a picture of my basket weave tile floor (it is actually just a tile " rug") with the Silver Shadow grout today. We had a white tile floor with white grout before our bathroom remodel and the white grout was impossible to keep clean, so it was nothing to do with basket weave per se for me.

I used a medium/dark grey grout with my basketweave (with black dots) because I did not want it to darken over time. The grout is Delorean Grey from Tec.
