How many spacers do I need for tile?
Hereof, are tile spacers necessary?
Tiling without spacers is not only extremely difficult but also time-consuming. You need to stop constantly and adjust the tiles so that you get an even layout. With a tile spacer, on the other hand, you will spend less time agonizing over the width and accuracy of your lines.
In respect to this, how long should I leave tile spacers in?
The spacers need to be in place until the tile adhesive sets, which usually takes from 20 to 30 minutes. Don't leave them much longer than that, or they may get bonded to the adhesive. It's never a good idea to leave spacers in place permanently and grout over them.
