The space between the tiles should be uniform. Use spacers if your tiles don't come on mesh sheets. The larger the tile the larger the space should be between them. Some do_it_yourselfers will make the mistake of pushing tiles too close together to reduce grout lines. Without enough surface area, grout won't bond well and can fail prematurely, leaving room for leaks and water damage. It's also very important to let the adhesive cure fully.
How to Repair Scratches on Ceramic Tile: In high_traffic areas, such as your bathroom or kitchen, ceramic tile takes lots of abuse. Ceramic floors have it harder than the walls __ they're walked over and played on, so scratches show up fast. Dirt and debris gets into these scratches, making the tile look perpetually grimy even after you've cleaned it. If the scratches aren't too deep, buffing the tile with a gentle abrasive is usually enough to get rid of them.
