Tile sticks out farther than the drywall next to it


U tile and plaster meet up along the wall and the tile is 1/4 thicker than the drywall. Could I put the corner round there? Or would that look dumb

The tile ontop of the cement board sticking out that much.

I think there are a number of tasteful transitions that you could use here... Simply using tiles with a finished end would look nice even if you extended it onto the other wall just a bit.

You could also use a variety of wood trim pieces.

Did you install that tile board over sheetrock or plaster? If so that's the problum, it needed to go first before it went up.

I'm assuming that the drywall and cement board are flush (at least it looks that way in the picture) and the 1/4" he's talking about is the depth of the tile that will be installed.

I would just buy some edge tiles (tiles that have a finished edge, meant to act as a border that is exposed from 2/3 sides) and carry over onto the drywall a few inches. It looks nice and it'll be easy to do.
