Also asked, what size notched trowel for wall tiles?
A 6mm x 6mm trowel will leave a 3mm bed of adhesive beneath the tile. Using a U-notched trowel and embedding the tile into the adhesive leaves you with a bed of adhesive beneath the tile a little over 1/3 the size of the trowel teeth. So a 10mm U-notched trowel leaves a 3mm bed of adhesive beneath the installed tile.
Secondly, what size notched trowel for 6x24 tile? Typically for floor installations, a 1/4” square-notched trowel is the right tool for the job, but if your floor is rolling, uneven, or if you are working with very large tiles, it helps to use a trowel with larger notches. Recommended sizes are 3/8” and 1/2”, which are easy to find in most hardware stores.
Moreover, why do you use a notched trowel for tile?
All a notch trowel does is provide a way to gauge how much thinset mortar you put down. You use the notch trowel and you can put down the same amount of mortar every time. What you want to do is put down enough mortar to get complete coverage underneath your tile. Different tiles require different amounts of thinset.
How big should grout lines be for 12x24 tile?
Finished grout lines will vary from 1/16" to 3/16". Note that using the smallest grout possible will increase installation time. 3/16": We recommend a 3/16" grout size for our Ceramic Tile line. This thickness leaves room for the natural variation in size, and the perfectly imperfect edges of handmade tile.
