grout the edges?


I recently read a post where the comment was made that any grout that joins up against a wall or tub is bound to get cracks from the expansion of the walls/tub/floor itself.

I'm putting ceramic tile on the floor in my bathroom and wonder if I should use something else around the edges of the floor?

The gap where tile meets the wall should be covered up by the baseboard. The gap where the tile meets a tub should be filled with caulk, not grout.
