How wide should my grout lines be? Everyone seems to have a different recommendation. I am installing porcelain tiles in a patio room and I live in very humid weather, if that helps. Thanks!

Grout joints for tile that are not self spacing will range from ¼” to ½” it will depend on the tile and the look that you would like.

I would agree with Jim. Many people prefer smaller joints so there is less grout to maintain. 3/16" would be the minimum I would recommend.
