    Does the Toto Colonial White really match the American Standard White? Online (and I know that's probably not the best way to compare) the toto color looks grayish white and A/S looks white. I'm getting a Toto drake toilet and my remodeler wants to use an A/S Americast tub... Thanks.

    Yes, it's pretty darn close.
    I install Toto softclose seats in Colonial White on the American Standard toilets.

    I have Colonial white Toto and an Americast tub in an upstairs bathroom and the answer is Yes.

    White is the most difficult color to match. I would never guarantee that 2 items would match unless they are from the same manufacturer. If you can get the 2 side by side in proper lighting, then the customer gets to decide if the colors are acceptable. Ever try matching a white sink, a white faucet, white sink flange, white air gap cover....all from different manufacturers???!!!!!
