What size tile spacers would you recommend for:

1. 12x12 tile on bathroom floor
2. 10x13 tile on shower wall

Thanks!

3/16 on the floor
1/8 or 1/6 on the walls/

I suggest you consider epoxy grout also--It's a bit pricy--however a few years from now you will be glad you did. It's not very difficult to install.--Mike--

Awesome, I'll look into it. Why? Mold/moisture resistance?

Spectralock made by Latacrete--Look at a real tile store--Lowes has it ,but only in small packages.

It's like plastic--can't get dirty or moldy--Will look like new forever.

Use an epoxy float,not a cheap one. Have at least 4 grout sponges(they will get sticky and be ruined-)

save one new sponge for the final wipe down.

Read the instructions. make sure that you get the tile 100% clean--Only dynamite will remove any grout left on the face of the tile!!

That being said, It has a nice long open time--is easy to clean up. I don't think it's much more work than cement grout.----Mike---
