Oh I hate making decisions when I havent got a clue what I am talking about :D I am having these tiles laid on my bathroom floor:


What colour grout would you go for? I dont think white is right (apart from getting dirty very quickly), we have similar beige coloured tiles on the wall with a kind of off-white grout but not really sure what colour it is! But I also see some people say to go with a darker grout as it is easier to clean.

Never use white grout on floors; it’ll look grubby quiet quickly. Grey goes with most tile colours; my personal bathroom has beige tiles with grey grout lines. Alternative is to go with a beige colour but be careful, are they polished or glazed porcelain (link doesn’t say)? Polished porcs need sealing to avoid staining but some come pre-sealed, check with supplier. If they are polished porcs use white adhesive rather than grey & avoid strong contrasting grout colours.

Your tiler should advise but I hope you picked him carefully, especially if it’s a suspended timber floor! ;)
thanks, seems light grey is probably suitable for everything :D Its an insurance job and they are providing the tradesmen, hopefully they know what they are doing! :rolleyes:
