Tile and Corners


So for things like bathtub and shower surrounds, I understand that inside corners should be caulked, and not grouted. What about outside corners, e.g. in front of a tub, like this:

Re: Tile and Corners


I always grout my outside corners. The end stud at the outside corner moves at the same rate on both side of the corner.

I sometimes use a metal edging to hide the unfinish tile edges. You can find the corner trim to match your the angle of your corner, or you'll have to meter your tiles at the corner.

I think that usually looks excellent. Just don't cheap-out and buy the plastic edging.

Re: Tile and Corners


Just hope that adding any non-tile trim pieces to tile outside corners or row edges are not even necessary. As IMO, they will just be something to collect dirt, mold, scrape ones skin on, and may come loose later on. Or for one to try to figure out how when they come loose, to re-secure them without showing tile /grout damage.

As a good tile installer should leave their tile job like in the pic in the OP. As IMO, there is nothing wrong with that tub's tiles installation
