Asked by Cooper April 20, 2021

Answer

Hi! For this type of installation, we recommend using sanded grout. As for grout size, we suggest using a 1/4" grout line to accommodate any variation in size or the subsurface and to allow movement. Dependent on how level your subfloor is, the smallest grout joint that we would suggest would be 3/16”. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Finished Laundry Room with this Tile
Just completed our laundry room with this tile. It feels like a very durable tile. It cut well using my tile saw and installed as well as any other tile that I have used. Shipping to home depot was prompt, I got the order within a few days, and the tiles were packed very well to avoid any breakage or wear from shipping. Very happy with this tile!!

Tile looks great!
Installed this in our small (3’ x 7’) main floor half bath. I love how it looks with dark gray grout! The tile is thicker than other tiles I’ve used.
