Tile Grout Spacers


What size spacers would you use for 12x12 porcelain tile in a tiny bathroom?

Thanks!

Tile Grout Spacers


i personally like 1/8 - 3/16 grout lines but it will depend on the quality of your tiles. some tiles will vary in size and tile spacers will not help you at all. i rarely use spacers, i like to lay a tile grid with chalk lines by measuring 2 tiles+2 grout joints and boxing a grid on the floor. this tecnique plus a good straight edge to work against works good for me.

Spacers? Never on floors, for me too.

"Spacers"? You don't need no stinking spacers.
