Grout or Caulk where floor tile meets wall tile?


Hello, I'm just finishing tiling my bathroom walls. The way i've done it, the wall tile extends a tile beyond the bathtub, and then meets with the floor tile on the bottom. Where these two meet should I grout or should I caulk? Thank you!!!

Caulk. Also caulk the inside corners and where tile meets tub or any dissimilar object.

Caulk is available in all grout colors. Ask your tile dealer to order it for you. The big box stores stock some colored caulk in the more popular grout colors.
