I hope you had a fantastic weekend and boy what a beautiful Sunday it was here in Ottawa. Now is the time to start a renovation so you are ready for spring. If you are remodelling your bathroom then grout size will eventually come up. It seems with every project there is the question on the grout size you would like to use. Installers will typically ask and it is good to have an idea of what you want.
Grout size will depend on the surface, quality and edge of the tile, look you want to achieve, tile size, and the space the tile will be used for.
Hand made tiles with imperfect edges can use a wider grout size. With less irregularity you can definitely go smaller. Less irregularity = less spacing.
For this bathroom I requested 1/8 grout size. Our tiles had a clean edge. You will need a good installer if you want to go with a small grout size.
This bathroom is a builder basic bathroom but the tile job was not that great originally. EQ homes installed new tiles and it is finally done and it looks like it should now. We are pretty happy. Finally it is done!
