I am considering a medium gray grout color. Also spacing...BEST ANSWER: The grout in the pictures about is NOT white. I wanted the exact look of the above pictures. I got this tile, absolutely love it, and took the recommended advice on getting white grout after reading this original question and answer. It looks completely different. Hides the character of the rough edges. Get a light grey or brown/taupe. I will post pics in a review.Is this tile a true bright white, or off-white? How do dove and vanilla compare, color wise?BEST ANSWER: Just finished installing the Bianco in my kitchen. Wanted to get away from anything cream of off white and get into the grey tones and this fits perfectly. Put it with bright white painted cabinets and grey countertops. It is definitely WHITE. Can't speak for Vanilla but Dove was pretty just ended up being to dark for the look I was going for. Hope this helped.

It went up well and looks beautiful.Hi! Is the Lancaster Bianco a cold, pure/ice white, or is it a warm white/slightly off-white? My cabinets are Benjamin Moore Simply White, if that helps. Thanks!BEST ANSWER: Hello! We recently installed the Lancaster Bianco in one of our custom homes, which had Sherwin Williams Pure White cabinets. That color is very similar to your BM Simply White. The color looks GREAT with the Bianco Tile. I would not say the tile is a cold/ice white color. It IS white, but with just a HINT of warmth to it. I think if you did the creamier color in the Lancaster it might look to creamy with your cabinets. We posted a photo of our kitchen w/ this tile under our Instagram @rangecustomhomes -- feel free to take a look. Hope that helps!Does it have a bullnose

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.INSTALLATION

- The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
