I’m getting some feedback about dark grout being used with stock white tile from a place like Lowe’s is “dangerous” because you’ll see flaws. This is being told to me by someone at an expensive tile store. I’m not sure if it’s a ploy to buy more expensive tile or free good advice. Any thoughts?

Nice things to know, thankfully. Yet some ready made combinations/ tables would be much handy in a logarithm style giving general readings for various colour combinations. For example, in my case, I am caught up between two colours which way to go, as I have a light grey floor tile and a marble effect matt medium grey wall tile both in 600x1200mm? Which way to go for the grout and how thick in millimetres.. 3 or 4 mm?
Thanks nd regards

I am installing wooden tiles on the exterior wall, and I am not able to decide the grout color. Should I go with gold or dark?
