Full Tile Bath Remod Question


I am in the beginning stages of a full bath remod where I am going to tile all the floor as well as tile all the walls from floor to ceiling. I will be doing all the corners of the walls and the wall to floor transitions with schluter cove transitions.

This eliminates baseboards from the room which is what I want but the one thing I can't figure out is how to trim out the door frame. Most bathrooms will just use the same trim as the baseboards but I think it would look out of place if I had the only trim in the room going around the door.

I have seen many nice pictures of modern/contemporary bathrooms with full tile walls but I can't find a single one pointed the other direction that shows the door and trim detail leading out around the door. Should I just tile to the edge of the door frame and just leave an 1/8 reveal like I would do with wood? Should I use a schluter profile that overlaps the door frame? All my walls are going to be 1/2 kerdi board with tile, no drywall.

I would personally trim the door. Paint it a color to blend in with the tile you're choosing. What are you doing about the window(s)?

There is only one window in the room which I am actually pulling out because it is going to interfere with the seamless look I am going for. I am instead going to put in a solartube.
Do I trim before or after the wall tile?

I tack on 1/2" jamb extenders (wide jambs are too expensive), then trim the door jamb, nailing into the jamb only. I think this is fine.

Another way would be to use metal door jambs, like you see in commercial settings, then caulk the joint. Obviously you would want to install the tile so that you had 1/8" joint against the jamb.

A third way would be to make your own jambs out of 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 wood and just tile up to them and caulk the joint, same as above.

That is all I can think of. I'll be interested to see if anyone else has some other solution.

Thanks for the info cleverman, I will probably extend the jamb just like you suggested!
