Tiling floor - corner edges ?


I am going to give this one a jump start.

I am just new to tiling and have just finished my floor and have cut the majority of the tiles for my baseboards, then I ran into a little conundrum. How do I do my inside and out side corners? Do I miter the outside and cope the inside like regular baseboards, and if so how do you cope tile? Or do you just butt joint them with a regular space in there? If so is there any tips on doing so.

Thanks a lot a head of time, I have been looking all around for this and have had no luck so far.

I leave them both square edged and grout the gap.
cover them with a bead of silicone.
space them to show the same grout line as the other joints.

Sounds like a plan.

I was on the fence about it, thanks a lot I just needed to hear someone else say it.
