John Whipple - By Any Design ltd. added this to Why Bathroom Floors Need to Move
This photo shows some great tile work. The beautiful tile is nicely lined up, but I especially appreciate how there's no mortar or thinset where the tile meets the wall. Using mortar here can lead to tenting issues, since it prevents the tile floor from moving and expanding. This clean finish is exactly what you want to see in your bathroom. Make sure your tile contractor understands that you don't want your installation done with thinset on the edges that meet the wall.

This photo shows some great tile work. The beau­ti­ful tile is nicely lined up, but I es­pe­cially ap­pre­ci­ate how there's no mor­tar or thin­set where the tile meets the wall. Us­ing mor­tar here can lead to tent­ing is­sues, since it pre­vents the tile floor from mov­ing and ex­pand­ing. This clean fin­ish is ex­actly what you want to see in your bath­room. Make sure your tile con­trac­tor un­der­stands that you don't want your in­stal­la­tion done with thin­set on the edges that meet the wall.

Remember to no put thinset where the tile meets the walls to allow for expansion

With extremely large bathrooms, expansion strips inlayed into the tile assembly are a must. In my opinion, any room larger than 15 feet in one direction should be using some kind of expansion strip and speciality thinsets and grouts to increase expansion and combat mortar fatigue.
