caulking new ceramic tile in living room

Sirs,
After much debate and deciding to install 20 inch tiles throughout my home instead of laminate my question comes to caulking the tiles where they meet the quarter round. Some areas are fine but other areas have some gaps. Should I caulk around the floor? I considered white to match the trim also considered clear. Need some opinions.

You can get caulk that matches the tile, the grout or the wood. We normally caulk with latex and paint it the same as the wood so the latex doesn't collect dirt over time.

You can order latex and silicone caulk in over 140 grout matching colors from www.ColorRiteInc.com Tell them we sent you.
