Are 4 inch backsplashes outdated?

The biggest issue with the 4-inch backsplash is that its style can appear outdated. Poor color matching can make it contrast too much with surrounding surfaces. Overly sharp or bright differences can also evoke older, non-retro themes. It isn't high enough to prevent wall splashes when someone tall works near it.

How do you fill gaps in tiles?

Tile adhesive forms the bed for fixing tiles, while tile grout fills the gaps in between the tiles. A grout is any viscous, packable material that can be used to fill the space between two elements for bonding them or to create a water-tight seal. Grouting of tile is the last process when installing tiles.

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.
