Whats The best choice


Postby Turnbull301 » Mon Oct 17, 2011 12:52 pm

Hey guys,

Got a question for you, I renovating a house and I'm currently working on the bathroom (Which was a mess)

I've dot and dabbed a wall and tiled it, now I just need to make a choice on the colour of the grout which seems to be my stumbling block.

It's my first project and I've started getting really quite paranoid about how my finishing touches may effect my final sale price. The most recent question I've had is about the colour of the grouting in the bathroom.
I got some good cheap tiles from a local supplier (Google "tubsandloos.com/") but I cant decide on the colour of the grouting, White may look sharper but then it would also be harder to keep clean (Which may be an issue if I can't sell and I choose to rent.

Please have a look at my pic and let me know what you think, Black or white:

Turnbull301,
Unless you have been very accurate fixing the tiles using white will highlight any variation in tile spacing. Go for grey or dark grey.

I agree. The white will only make it look bad if not done properly. I would go for dark Grey.

Well in my opinion white will be very good combination, so go for it.
