Ceramic tile corner joint detail


Which option is best on the inside tile corner tile joint detail.
1) Run first tile to the wall, leaving a small gap and then butt the second tile to it.
2) Set tiles away from one another leaving an appropriately sized "grout" joint?

I am fully aware of caulking instead of grouting the corner, due to cracking concerns. But which is the more professional looking method.

My opinion is option one. Leaving a hollow corner (option 2) is inviting problems that you can avoid by going with the he first option.

I would say number 2. The reason is the sides of the are not finished. The caulk will hide it better.

The corner will still be caulked though.
