12 or 16 column grid for a full width website?


Question

So I'm looking for the right answer for my grid system:

1) Should I use 12 or 16 column grid for a full width website similar to these websites: http://xfinitytv.comcast.net http://www.vevo.com

2) Can I use bootstrap for 16 column width

3) what are the challenges for a 16 columns grid vs traditional 12 column grid?

Should I use 12 or 16

Sure. Use either one.

Can I use bootstrap for 16 column width

By default Bootstrap is a 12 column grid. You could certainly modify it as you see fit.

what are the challenges for a 16 columns grid vs traditional 12 column grid

Nothing, really. It's just a decision you're making to fit the needs of your particular layout. Both are equally valid. As would an 8 column grid or a 20 column grid or whatever...
