I left the 1/8" gap when I did my fireplace and it's not noticeable at all. However, pay attention to whether or not your cement board stands out as much lighter (or darker) than you floor or stone...

As far as the edge, I'm guessing that your 12x24's likely do not have a coordinating bullnose for your counter edge. If that is the case, you are pretty limited - I...
