Show us some pics and we will tell you how great it looks. When friends are enjoying your pool no one, except for you, will be looking at the grout color.

Once the pool is full of water and the patio is full of furnature and people laughing and having a great day on said furniture and in said pool...... nobody will ever see the grout.

Looks great! Just the color I would have picked. Low maintenance and will age well.

I’d be mad if the grout was a DIFFERENT color from what you picked on accident. That is a TOP notch screw up right there. Bravo.

you now have an open invite to come screw up anything you would like at my house. Thanks.

LOl.. I feel soooo much better now! I was just thinking it was too dark... tile didn't pop because it matched so well and worried about calcium showing up more due to darker grout etc.... but I am so glad ya'll think it looks good.. ugh.. just so easy to second guess stuff I guess. Whew! I got out of bed this morning and went back out to look at it again!!! LOL funny how the mind can really get going and stress us out!

You have 1.3 million decisions to make with the build. Each and every one of them seems like the world is riding on it. Can you prefer green more than blue ? Absolutely. But it won’t be ugly either way, it will still look great.

Well, I hope you're definitely feeling better now, but I'll pile on. Personally, I really love this look. It's beautiful and you are gonna LOVE YOUR POOL! Omg, I am SO glad that we bought a home with the pool already in. Even if there are things I would change, I am not sure I have the stomach to go through a build and having to make all of these decisions! I would second guess myself about every darned thing and give myself an ulcer :LOL:

The grout is spot on. It looks great. I think any other lighter color would have made it look like its sticking out like a sore thumb.
