The typical tile spacer has a cross shape. Depending on how you look at a cross, you can emphasize either of the following characteristics:

·        It has four corners.

·        It has a projection that sticks out in each of the four different directions (up, down, left, right).

For this reason, there are two schools of thought on how to use tile spacers. One takes its cue from what we might call the "four corners" perspective. Using this perspective, you would :-

·        Lay down four tiles to form a square.

·        Insert a tile spacer at the intersection where these four tiles meet. The spacer will lie down flat on the ground using this method.

·        Fit a corner of each piece of tile snugly into the corresponding corner of the tile spacer.

Here is the problem with this method. After you grout the tiles, it will be very hard to remove the spacers. Removing them is preferable to letting them remain behind because the spacers are taking up space that you would rather have occupied by grout.

Thus the attraction of the method favored by the second school of thought, which we can call the "projection" method. People who use this method simply jam one of the four projections on a tile spacer in between two pieces of tile. Typically, they will use two tile spacers per side. Since a piece of tile has four sides, you would use eight tile spacers around it. 

This second method is somewhat counter-intuitive because you are not using the whole tile spacer (since you are setting it on end, a portion of it will be sticking up, unused). But, again, you will be able to remove the tile spacers (as long as you pull them out before the grout is completely dry) this way, which is considered a sounder approach.

While tile spacers are usually made of plastic, they can also be composed of wood or ceramic. Their size also varies. Home Depot sells the following sizes of "Job-Tough Tombstone-Style tile spacers".

·        1/8 inch

·        1/16 inch

·        3/16 inch

·        1/4 inch

·        3/8 inch

The smaller the size of the tile spacer, the narrower will be the joints between your tiles. Many factors can determine whether you go with a narrower or a wider joint, which, in turn, determines what kind of grout to use. But, all else being the same, a narrower joint is preferred. A wider joint provides more of a surface for staining to occur. Many people also prefer the look of a patio, bathroom floor, etc. with narrower joints, since the surface looks flatter and more unified.

Pack size varies, as well. For example, some packs at Home Depot may contain 250 tile spacers, while others contain 1000.

Besides Home Depot, you can usually buy tile spacers at Lowes, True Value, pop hardware stores and of course, specialty tile stores.
