What color grout would look the best for this particular ceramic tile?

Aroa Arena 8 x 12 ceramic wall tile used for kitchen backsplash
Asked by: Poppy
I chose Alabaster. However, it is a new product and it might not be in stores at a later date. The effect is great.

Customer Reviews

Aroa Arena 8 in. x 12 in. Ceramic Wall Tile (11 sq. ft. / case) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad experience! Reading the previous reviews I couldn’t believe this is a normal practice at this... Bad experience! Reading the previous reviews I couldn’t believe this is a normal practice at this company Merola. Again – every tile had glue on the glossy side, on all four corners. First I started peeling it with nails, after that I used a knife, but it took hours of exhausting and useless work. More than 5 tiles were broken, among 7 packages, and few tiles had a gray mark that was indelible. We bought tiles from another store and they all were good, with protection on the back of the tile that couldn’t ruin in any way the glossy face. In 21st century a company uses its customers to peel some unexplainable marks and glue from every tile! I am glad I didn’t need hundreds. It is unacceptable! The tiles themselves are good so far. Exactly what I expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TILE HAS WAX IN 4 PLACES ON FRONT OF TILE THIS TILE LOOKED PRETTY AND I GOT IT FOR MY MOTHER. WHEN OPENING BOXES, I PURCHASED 5 BOXES WITH 16 PIECES IN EACH, THE FIRST TILE WAS OK, ALL THE REST OF TILES HAD 4 HALF DOLLAR SIZE PIECES OF GLUE ON THE FACE OF TILE, IN ALL 5 BOXES, NOT HAPPY! I GOT IT OFF BY PEELING AND HAVING TO USE SCRAPER. (GREAT FOR TILE!) MOM WANTED TO KEEP TILE, I WANTED TO TAKE IT BACK. I WENT BACK TO GET SOME MORE TILES, 10 OR SO WERE BROKEN... AND CHECKED MORE BOXES.(10) EVERYONE.. HAD THESE MARKS, ALSO IN GREY COLOR, TOLD MANAGER SHE TOLD REP FROM MEROLA, THE COMPANY, HE CALLED ME AND SAID "HE WANTED TO TELL ME HOW TO GET OFF "WAX" AND "WHY" IT WAS ON THERE" AS IF I CARED WHY AND AS IF IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ON AND NOT A DEFECT OF QUALITY CONTROL. I WOULD NEVER PURCHASE THESE TILES, AS ACCORDING TO REP, ,MADE IT SEEM LIKE THIS IS AN ADDED BENEFIT TO SCRAPE OFF WAX (OR GLUE) IN 4 PLACES ON ONE PIECE OF TILE! TIMES 60 TO 80 PIECES. COULDN'T EVEN ADMIT IT IS A PROBLEM, IF YOU DON'T MIND SCRAPING WAX OFF YOUR TILES , GO FOR THESE TILES, I NEVER WILL IN FUTURE. THERE IS OTHER TILE JUST AS PRETTY, THIS "FEATURE" IS ONE I DON'T CARE TO HAVE WHEN PURCHASING TILE. NOBODY SHOULD HAVE TO SCRAPE ANYTHING OFF NEW TILES!!!
