Color of Hearth Grout?

This is a photo of my fireplace hearth before:


I never liked the black and white tiles. I had them removed & now have replaced them with dark gray, large slate squares:


They have not been grouted in, as yet.

What color grout would you recommend? The same as the old fireplace grout or a dark gray?

Thanks for your help!

P.S. The insulation hanging down was from an old fireplace glass door and will be removed. :)

Looks good! I put slate on the hearth of our kitchen fireplace and just used regular mortar for the grout - which is a medium to dark grey. IMHO grout looks best when it matches the color of the material so as not to draw attention away from the stone.

Many thanks for your reply.

My thoughts, exactly.

Thank you for the compliment!
