Back Door tile spacing? Fireplace tile spacing?


I need some help with the spacing needed for the back door and fireplace. I am laying tile in a diagonal and not sure how much space I need.

Do I tile right to the back door, or leave the typical grout line spacing.

Also, should the fireplace have a grout line spacing?

THanks

You need a small gap. Caulking is used not grout where ever it meets a different material or changes direction, such as meets a wall, inside corner.
