Question sanded or unsanded caulk

What is the difference between sanded and unsanded caulk? Can I use the unsanded caulk to fill in the expansion joint between floor tile and wall? The expansion joint is about 1/4 inch wide.

You could, but sanded will look more like the grout.

Tile Caulkings

There is really no difference between the sanded and non-sanded tile caulkings other than one has sand in it.

Use the one that you are using everywhere else. They key is to try to make it look uniform with the rest of the grout in the room.

For example, on multi story units, when I tile a floor I will use the color of tile caulking that I used on the floor to seal the toilet or pedestal to the floor. I (or my customers) have always been amazed how these caulkings match the grout once they dry.

But you want to CAULK a 1/4" joint on the floor? That is a large joint for caulking and will need expertise in applying.

I would problably grout this joint.
