Crown molding termination at tile
 
1 Attachment(s)
I am redoing my bathroom and have tiled the tub area up to the ceiling. I have crown molding in the rest of the house and am doing same in bathroom. I terminated the crown at the tile edge by doing an "outside corner" miter to turn the crown back to the wall. Is this the correct way to do it? Is this the best way? Are there other techniques for terminating the crown at tile? Not sure I like the way this looks, as it leaves a triangle of wall exposed at the end. (Hopefully the picture I attached shows up below)
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

That's correct. It is called a "mitered return".

I would extend the molding so that bottom point of the miter is aligned on tile edge, not the top.

IMHO: I dissagree. The molding is part of the drywall portion of the wall. It should be terminated and returned on that area of wall (like the pic.), not on the tile area (which is the transition surface).

Just the picture I was looking for. Finally installing the crown in my living/dining/kitchen project.

Thx!
