What do I do between the avaire tile and the threshold of a door? Do I grout that?

Maybe I should clarify - the threshold of exterior doors.

Jill the rule of thumb in tile installation is to never grout a change in plane or when adjacent-to dissimilar materials. Colored caulks are available that will closely (if not perfectly) match any grout that is made.

Home Centers sell the colored caulks in the most popular colors and other colors can be special ordered.:)

So, I should caulk between an exterior door threshold and the tile? Or, is there a transition that I could use, or maybe a quarter-round toe-kick?

All three may work.

If you have the type of threshold that will allow enough height to place a piece of quarter round thats a great option.

Using a color matched caulk like Journeyman described is the most common method I use.

There are different types of transition profiles available but they can look clumsy,are usually special order and can pricey.

Hope this helps.
