I want my laundry room to have a nice edge. I'll put real "bullnose" in the visible areas but in the areas that aren't seen, it seems rather a waste to use the real,purchased "bullnose" tiles. (they cost quite a bit more)
I was thinking of cutting regular field tiles to the 3" height but of course the edge won't look real good. do those bullnose blades work good? are they worth the cost? maybe I should just leave the edge on my cut tiles alone and have a square edge. any thoughts?
Most of the time in remodeling, the 3" bullnose is not high enough, so we usually go the cutting the regular tiles. Most porcelain tile factory edges look pretty good, just expect to get 2 pieces per full tile. Some people end up painting the tops to match the walls, usually not.

thanks Jaz. yeah I'm going to save money by not buying so many bullnose. I'll only buy for the area that will be readily seen, the rest will be cut from "field tiles". the cost is pretty outrageous for the ones you buy,like almost 3x the cost of a field tile. must be because it's hard to finish an edge or maybe they just want to "sock it to ya".
