    "Rectified edges give floor tiles cleaner lines and far less intrusive grout lines which help to creat a more seamless floor space."

    "It’s a tile with a sharp straight edge that can have a thinner grouting line once laid and looks neater in appearance for intricate tiling patterns."

    "A rectified tile is one that has had its edges finished by a machine to a precise length and width, thus giving each tile the same (within some tolerance) dimensions. This is important when considering using a small grout or gap line since any deviation from a standard length and width cannot be accommodated if the grout line is too small."

    Rectified tiles are being cut by the end of production to have straight edge finish and could be installed next to each other without space.
    I recommend no space installation at all.

    I recommend minimum space between tiles 1.5 mm or 2mm for grouting to finish with grout sealer."
