    Thickness of grout line query

    Fired Earth recommend using a 3mm grout thickness on their 200x100mm tiles when fixed onto plaster, to allow for movement. My tiler has gone ahead and used 2mm spacers, he says he always does this for walls. Could i have a problem. British Standards say a minimum of 2mm.

    Visual line seen where tiles butt together

    Hi, I am interested in the Michigan Grey Rustic Brick Effect Tiles (see photo), but notice that if one tile is butted against the next one, there is a visible line seen that is not on the grout lines of the main tile. Any ideas on how I can hide this line to get around the problem? Bob

    How do you wrap tiles onto window sill? Just can’t seem to get the joints to line up perfectly?
