tile threshhold to shower w/out bullnose


My shower is 4'x4' & ready to tile. I want to use the remainder of my bathroom floor porcelain to cover the 4'x5.5" threshold and bullnose is not available. Also have the 4-5" step up into the shower to tile also. Can anyone help me solve my dilemna

I usually go to a counter top company and have a solid threshold cut to size.

Some times Corian some times stone. I don't like a tiled thresh --way to likely to fail before the shower needs replacing.

You do not want a raw tile edge or a sharp mitered edge on the shower curb.

See what a 6" wide corian thresh will cost you. I hate to tell you what I pay as I get a fairly good discount--still shouldn't be to much.---Mike--

How about posting a picture or two and show the tiles you want to use. We need to see how things are built. Also please describe what you've done and what setting materials you used and plan to use.
