Space between tiles and where to put the cut tiles


1. How much space do I leave between the cut tiles in the 90 corners where the walls meet? I am using 12 inch (11 3/4 inch) tiles with 1/8 spacers.

2. How much space do I leave between cut tile at bottom and tub itself? I know I need to use silicone sealant, but I'm not sure how much space to leave.

3. On the side walls (30 inches) would you recommend cuts in the corners where they meet the back wall or putting a full piece in the corners and have only one cut near the sliding shower/tub door? Thanks. I need help! I've been taking a shower on the patio for 3-weeks and the neighbors don't look happy. :-).

No you don't.

Balance is sometimes the choice, it's your call.
