What size trowel for 6x12 floor tile?


I plan on installing 6x12 porcelain floor tiles. What size trowel do you recomment?


What size grout line and color do you think I should use? I'm thinking about using the lash system to even out the tiles.

What are your thoughts on running it in a running bond pattern?

Hi,
