Color of caulk is personal choice, but I'd vote to match the grout color. If you do, be sure to mask off the tub the best you can to get a nice even bead. A spray bottle with denatured alcohol works wonders as you tool the silicone. Depending on the depth of the joint, backer rod would be ideal, but with such a narrow joint you'll have a tough time. Some have used window screen spline to act as a backer rod with good success on those narrow joints.

Also...that's gonna be one hell of a toilet there! Gonna need a ladder to get on that bad boy!

good idea on the window spline! Figured it would be easier to flush cut the pipe and install the flange on top of the tile after

I thought the same. "Whoa, now that'll be quite a throne!"

Hey all, back after almost getting the floor in. I was cleaning out the grout joints with a utility knife and scraper and managed to somehow leave some metal behind on the tile


I tried buffing it out with a microfiber and magic eraser but no luck. Since the tile is a porcelain glazed matte surface I don't want to polish it too much to change the shine. Anyone have any ideas on the best way to remove this without affecting the finish of the tile? Thanks again

I’ve had luck with BonAmi and Cerama-Brite. Both have effective abrasives without scratching. If you have a spare piece of tile you can use it as a test piece.
