I need advice about tub/ shower caulk color
adorfmanMarch 22, 2013
We've remodeled out tub/ shower with white subway tiles using TEC light grey silverado grout. Here's my dilemma, I've seen pictures where for the inside vertical corners they used white caulk ( instead of light grey) so it gives the illusion that the tile wraps around the corners, since the caulk blends in with the tile. The people at the tile store said the have never seen this done, and I haven't seen it for real, only in photos. Have you seen this done? Does it look ok!?

There are translucent silcone caulks available, they normally match two shades lighter or darker than their color. These caulks are normally used in the countertop industry, but are great for showers, tub, and tile too.

Great advice from Ironwood and Norm. Ask them to do a sample on the cuts from tiling with both colours.
