How much space to leave at the corners

I am in the process of building a shower which will have tiles on 3 walls, floor and ceiling ....

do I have to leave space only at the wall/floor tile junction or wall/wall wall/ceiling junction as well....if yes, how much space should be left in each case.

thanks
Christy

What ever your spacing is throughout your tiling, use the same at the corners. You do not want tile touching tile. Also use caulking instead of grout in these areas.

I thought you needed to leave at least 1/4" space to allow for expansion/movement?

Thats why you use caulking instead of grout in these areas. 1/8-1/4" is fine.
