Installing tile baseboard


Layed 12x12 porcelain tile in bathroom. Is there any reason why I can't put 4x12 porcelain baseboard up and grout the floor and the baseboard at the same time?

Definitely do the base first--no need to make a grout mess twice--

Installing tile baseboard


Plan on caulking the base at the floor---clean the grout out with a knife before it sets---walls and floors move at different rates and a grouted juncture will eventually crack.

Installing tile baseboard


I ran a bead of matching grout caulk on the bottom edge of the tile base before I put them in place. After all grout is dry I'll come back with the caulk along the base/floor seam and along the top of the base tile to clean up the gaps between the wall and tile.
