Grout color puzzle

Craziness! Warm gray floor tile, white subway on walls. Early morning the grout that seems would work best are platinum for walls and winter gray for floor. In artificial light oyster gray for walls and natural gray for floors are best. Problem is the two that look bad in the wrong light look REALLY bad. I can't imagine that I am the only one who has faced this. What have you done? Thanks! . (Posted in bathrooms as well)

You assess your lighting. And maybe change the bulbs. That can have a HUGE difference in how colors look. However, it's hard to go wrong with natural gray for any warm gray floor.

RE: Grout color puzzle

Thank you! I think natural gray it is. I like platinum for walls, but it is so cool, I am concerned. It seems oyster gray is a better match, but may be too beige? The paint will be BMJet Stream. Can go warm or cool. Your thoughts are most welcome!

RE: Grout color puzzle

Try a more neutral, less interesting gray. Tile store samples typically use a traditional plain gray grout and they always look great. Look at it under various lighting types, as that seems to be an ever evolving element these days.
