19"x19" tile, what thickness edging to use


So I will be installing these tiles soon, they are 3/8" thick and i will be using a 1/2" trowel. just wondering what thickness tile edge to use.
They are wall tiles for a tub surround.

19"x19" tile, what thickness edging to use


Hi,

Well, OK, they are floor tiles being installed on walls. I doubt they are really 3/8", probably 1cm, which is close. I supposed by edging you mean the metal "L" edgings like this; http://www.schluter.com/products.aspx , either the Schiene or the Jolly. Is there no bullnose trim tiles to match the tiles available?

If you have to use the metal, go with 1/2". Hope those walls are very flat in every direction.

Jaz

You might want to tap some small roofing nails to hold up the tiles or will crush the spacers and you will never get them out.

Try rondec or bulnose. 1/2 trowel is too small.
