Poll #1245401 grout colour

What colour grout should we use?

ivory (goes better with tiles)
grey (doesn't show the dirt so much)
some other colour (cos purple would be funky)
ticky box!
forget tiles, use lino

I tickied ivory, cos I can't help thinking that the grey will take a lot of the light out of the area, even if it is a light shade.

We have ivory grout in our small bathroom, and I hate it. I'm not a serious cleaning-type, but damn, it makes me want to get down onto the floor and scrub with a brush. It looks crappy when it gets dirty, and even if it's just you, it'll bug you later.

When my mom and dad were working on the house they put in tile, and although they had no money at the time they saved up to get colored grout. My mom says to this day she is still so glad they went with a color rather than a more "plain" grout, because it really brought out the whole area and made her smile each time she saw it.

Oh dear. The walls are entirely ivory - tiles and grout. Though they'll hopefully be less dirty than the floor. The floor tiles aren't quite so pale.

There's been no talk of extractor fans. There is a hole in the wall, which could be intended for one, but I don't think there's any electricity going there, so it's probably just going to be a vent. Hmm..,
