The general rule is to use tile spacers of 2 – 3mm for a ceramic wall tile installation and tile spacers of 5mm for a ceramic floor tile installation, but there are numerous factors that can influence the size of the tile spacers you use. Porcelain, granite and marble tiles are generally installed with a 3mm spacer.
What Size Tile Spacers for Large Tiles?
When it comes to tile spacers, there is no one–size–fits–all answer. The size of tile spacers you use will depend on the size of the tiles you are using. If you are using large tiles, then you will need to use larger tile spacers.
The reason for this is that large tiles require more space between them in order to allow for expansion and contraction. If you use small tile spacers with large tiles, then the tiles will likely crack or break over time.
There are a few different sizes of tile spacers that are commonly used for large tiles. The most common size is 1/2 inch.
This size is large enough to allow for expansion and contraction, but small enough to not be too noticeable. Another size that is sometimes used for large tiles is 1/4 inch.
This size is less common, but it can be used if you want a smaller space between your tiles. Whatever size tile spacers you choose, make sure that they are the same size on all sides.
This will ensure that your tiles are evenly spaced and look symmetrical.
