Our mirror glass tiles come mesh mounted for an easy installation, therefore it already comes with grout joint/space.

Since the tiles are silver and reflective, we recommend using a clear/translucent grout.

No. You may finish the edges by:

2) You may also use Schluter Tile Profiles, which can be purchased at your local home improvement store.
