how big I should leave gap between walls for inside corner?

I'm laying 6"x6" tiles on wall with 1/8" spacers, not sure how big the gap I should leave in inside corners between 2 walls? and gaps where walls meet floor for expansion? since the rest of grout lines are 1/8", should I leave the gap the same width for uniform looks? or bigger like 1/4"? the sizes of each wall are about 25 sf.

these corners should be filled with caulk after grouting, am I right?

1/8" is fine. If you caulk first, and let it cure, you won't have to dig out any stray grout from the corners. Or do it the other way, and you may find it easier to caulk last.
