Grout or caulk in the corner?


Hi,

I am building a niche in my bathroom. I have few tiles meet in the corners at 90 degree. I need to fill the space between tiles.
Do I need to use grout or do I need to use caulk? What is the best approach here?
Please see the attached drawing.

Thanks

Suk,
use matching colored caulk. Most tile shops have it available in sanded and unsanded versions.
