Answer: 
If you are using sanded grout (which is more durable and less prone to cracking than unsanded grout), you will need at least 1/8 of an inch of spacing between tiles. You can go with 1/16-inch grout lines if you use unsanded grout.

Answer: 
With almost any stone tile, you need some space, even if it's 1/16 of an inch. Make sure you use unsanded grout for small joints. I've heard of some contractors using joints of 1/32 but I don't think that is code and doesn't leave enough room for even unsanded grout to bond without risking cracks.

Answer: 
The instructions on the bag call for 2 quarts of water to one 25-pound bag, so you can do the math. Half of that would be 1 quart to 12.5 pounds, and half of that would be 2 cups to 6.25 pounds, etc.

When I mix the grout for a mosaic project, I don't usually measure. For a 12-in. by 12-in. stepping stone, I put about a half cup of grout powder into a paper or plastic (disposable) bowl, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of water, then slowly add and mix in a few drops of water at a time. When I have a mixture that is like stiff cookie dough, I know it's about right. Better on the dry side than too wet, because if the grout is too wet, it will crack as the project dries.

Answer: 
To answer this I'd need to know how wide and deep your grout lines are and how large are your tiles. I believe the general rule of thumb is one 25-lb sack of grout for a whole bathroom.
I used half a 25-pound bag to grout tiles around my bath tub clear to the ceiling, plus a 6 ft by 7 foot floor (with 13" x 13" tiles on the floor, plus a tiled area behind the toilet, plus tile baseboards.

Answer: 
Depends on the size of your tile and the size of the joints/grout line you want. The chart on the box should help. If they don't have the exact tile size you're using, calculate with a smaller tile and you'll have some left over.
Example: If you're using 12x12 tiles with a 3/16" joint, your 25lb bag will cover 230 sqft. If you're using 12x12 tiles with a 1/4" joint, your 25lb bag will cover 175 Read More

After the grout dried, it was no where near the color on the grout packaging (much lighter).

I returned to HD (Seekonk MA) to discuss.

The HD associate showed me the color sample chart at the end of the grout aisle (which I had not seen when I purchased the grout)

We compared the color on the grout chart with the grout bag packaging and it was obvious that the color on the packaging was much darker than the chart sample.

I purchased the grout by the color on the grout package and was not aware of the color chart at the end of the aisle. Now I am extremely disappointed in how the tile floor appears in my kitchen renovation.

Looking back, this happened in 2 bathroom renovations over the years... same HD grout, same issue... disappointment in the resulting grout color. Now I understand why.

Was this an oversight on my part or is there a flaw in the color samples and packaging strategy of your major grout line of products?

I always mix a very small amount and let it set completely for my clients to approve before moving forward with the complete install. I never count on a color card/ piece of paper or any other color samples to be 100% a match from what I have purchased, doesn't matter if its paint, stains, grout, etc. anything colored can very.
Another tip: ALWAYS mix all of the packages together before starting, why, again because the color consistancy is never 100% the same.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mixes well and dries true to color This sanded grout is easy to mix and the color is just what I expected. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is that the bag is so big and heavy. I'm a mosaic artist, and I only need a half cup or so to grout a stepping-stone project. If I could buy a 10-pound bag, instead of 25 pounds, I'd be really happy. Note for those who work with mosaics: it's best to work in cool weather; overcast is ideal, but early morning works too. This grout dries at a slow enough pace that you can undo and redo small areas if needed. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tile Choice on my part. The Delorean Tile Grout is beautiful and matches the tile and allows more light into the room. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use & great looking finished grout color. Used this Delorean Grey grout to finish off the Westbrook "Eclipse" 18x18" tiling in front entryway (refer to my review of that tile). It completely enhances the color of the "Eclipse" tile which almost looks like light grey marble. Once dry, the grout retained that medium dark grey I was looking for. A perfect match and easy to use. Recommended. August 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love the color This was featured as a go with for the floor tile I purchased. I think for the size tile I used that unsanded would have been better but I didn't see it in this color. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ethel Turn out to be a good match for my back splash I could not have picked out a better shade for my back splash. It blends well with my wall color. August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works The stuff goes down good but I would recommend waiting until all the tiles are laid. I started and had to stop before it was completely grouted. I came back while using the same bag of grout and the color was slightly off August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tile grout This product was easy to use, but very dusty. I had no problems with the clean up. June 14, 2016
