What's the Smallest Bathroom Tile Spacers Possible

Hi gang, deciding what spacers to use with regular 12x12 inch bathroom tile. My preference is to go as small as as possible, I just don't like large gaps of grout, but I don't want no grout either. Are there 1/16 in. spacers? Or is that not a good idea, should I stick with standard, like 1/8 in. or 1/4? Thanks in advance.

Lot depends on the tile, if its true and consistent size it works, if it's got variation then the narrow lines can look distorted. I keep all my tile work at 1/8", all my spacers work, and it's easy to work with.

Anywhere from 1/8 to 1/4 inch is best. It gives a bit of wiggle room to adjust for inconsistencies. But personal preference should be your final guide.

If you go with smaller spacers make sure to use unsanded grout.

I agree 1/8 to 1/4. And smallr tiles look better in a small bathroom.
