First time tiling on cement floor - grout lines question

Hello -

I am doing my first tiling project. I have removed some old tile and am replacing it with granite tile. The room is a basement bathroom (so the floor is concrete). I have removed the old thin set.

When I lay the new tile do the grout lines on the floor need to match the grout lines on the trim?

Also any other tips for a first timer doing floor tile (I have done walls and backslashes before).

Matching up the grout joints is purely personal. What does Mrs Jean think? If you are Mrs Jean, then your vote is the only one that counts.

Got pics? We can always add our 2 cents when we know what we are looking at.

For when DIY isn't such a good idea...
