Grout Thickness And Colour Recommendation


Dear all this is my first post in your beloved forum. tks for letting me post my needed inquiry and suggestion.

basically we are doing a hexagon tile flooring with travertine using three different colours ( Navona, Noce and another colour that goes in between )

My concern is what grout thickness 1mm or 2mm and what colour should we go for since we have three different colours which most of it is the Navona.

We will also have a parquet installed dark brown colour that will amalmagate with the hexagon tiles.

i have attached a photo to have a better idea

Mix your colored tiles better.

The darker tiles need to be dispersed more into the lighter ones.

The travertine will take on the same hew as the grout. The color difference will be much less noticeable in the final product.
