Gaps in tiled floor?


I was at the mall today and noticed they have gaps after every 10 or so tiles. The big gaps are most likely trunkings, but what are the purpose of the small gaps?

Expansion/control joints. Allows the floor to move a slight bit without cracking the tile.

Makes sense. For large area installs, didn't thought of that.
