Corner Trim


So after the last shoddy tile sub I'm going to do this one.

My return wall is flush with the tub. I was thinking of putting a bullnose tile on that wall or a schulter rondec corner. The side wall is not being tiled.

Any suggestions?

Re: Corner Trim


We use Jolly or Schienne alot and or the customs building products ones that are similar.

Make sure to size the trim a hair bigger than the tile for thinset build up.

Last couple jobs were done with matte black to match fixtures.

Re: Corner Trim


I bought a jolly as well so it's on the job.

So just jolly or jolly edge and bullnose return? It influences that direction I put it.

I think the rondec looks way better than jolly. I always have my drywaller put corner bead on that at the DW stage, he just muds the DW side.

Re: Corner Trim


The only thing with the corner bead is carrying it down along the tub. If I use just a profile I could flat tape against it and seal the joint.

Hmmm

Re: Corner Trim


So how do you boys handle niches with subway tile?

The customer wants the bullnose finish with no minors are no rondec but I have a 3 by 9 tile which leaves me slivers inside the perimeter.

See if you can find a larger tile in the same finish.

Piece of Kerdi board on the back of the niche.

Different tile in the niche.

Rip tile, 2 pieces to make up the depth. I’d fix these to Kerdi, install next day.

Re: Corner Trim


I actually did try to promote a different tile in the niche, no go.

Im using one of those foam Nobel niches, the square on. Im considering slicing about 5/16-3/8 off it to make a tad more shallow.

Bad idea?

Re: Corner Trim


Nice, they refuse all the nice ways to get it done.

Do they have any suggestions on how you should get this done?
