    We highly recommend grouting this as moisture and water will erode the thin set and make the tiles pop off. The grout prevents this from ocurring and helps secure the glass tile in place. You can minimize grout lines down to 1/16th inch, but I would not recommend any smaller.

    I prefer tile for beauty and often times is less slippery due to the texture and grout lines.

          4. Fish Scale: When You Want Your Space to Feel Like a Vacation RetreatThe “fish scale” pattern is practically ancient but always feels fresh and even a little exotic or nautical, depending on the materials used. It gives a sense of motion because it creates the look of semicircles that appear to be overlapping like actual fish scales, which makes it look energetic and a bit whimsical.It can be achieved as a mosaic of tiny tiles (great for giving a shower floor extra anti-slip grip) or with tiles specifically cut into a scale shape that is designed to interlock this way.

          Daily Shower CleanersEither way, once the shower has been wiped down, finish the job with a quick misting of daily cleaner such as Method Daily, Tilex Daily Shower Cleaner, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Tub and Tile or your own concoction (see below).The best part about daily maintenance: You won’t need to deep-clean the shower as often and the glass will stay sparkly.

          By Any Design Ltd. added this to Finishing Touches: Pro Tricks for Installing Fixtures in Your TileJul 5, 2013

          When you or your installer drills tile, make sure there's a small bucket of cold water nearby to cool the bit often. If the water in the cuts starts to boil, the bit hasn't been cooled often enough. If a diamond bit gets too hot, the diamonds will fall off the drill bit and make it worthless.Tip: Drill especially slowly and stop constantly to cool the drill bit when drilling glass tile or any tile. Glass cracks easily if it gets too hot, and the risk is high when you're drilling into it.

          Vanessa Brunner added this to House Planning: How to Choose TileMay 10, 2011

          1. Where will this tile be placed? Deciding exactly where the tile will be placed will help you narrow down size and material. Are you using this tile for a backsplash? A counter? Floor? Walls? Most commonly, stone, ceramic, and porcelain are used for counters and floors. Glass is mostly used for walls and backsplashes. This shower has a ceramic mosaic floor (which provides a solid grip in an otherwise slippery shower), accented with easy-to-clean rectangular glass tiles. Find new wall tile for your bathroom shower
