Accent Trim Tile

We would like to instal a glass mosaic trim line in our shower room. We only want to use uncut tiles butting up to the trim line. We are using large format porcelain tile and the question is "how do we strike the lines to start the tiling job" and what process (i.e. do this first then do this next) should we follow?

Not sure what you are asking here---

Are you asking how to lay out your tile for a good look?

As to the accent stripe---the easiest way to get that line perfect is to cut a temporary wood strip the size needed for the accent stripe and two grout lines--set the removable wood spacer in as you set the large field tile.

Remove the wood filler after the field tile is set and dried---some filling might be required if the glass tile is thinner than the field tile--
