Metal Edging and Odd Connection Point on Wall


Hi everyone,

Just came across a question that I can't seem to get an answer for. I have finished the floor tiles and diamond pattern and I am moving on the walls. We have no bull nose tiles available. So I decided to get some of schluter metal edging.

The bathtub will have full tiling, the rest of the bathroom will have half tiling and an accent strip towards the top (see image) and then I wanted to put metal edging.

I have however hit an area which to me is going to look odd. The outside corner of the right part of the shower (see image). I was going to full tile to the outside wall and then put the metal edging. So basically you would have the metal edging and the sheetrock following to the right. Which looks right.

However when I continue to tile and get the lower wall and add the metal edging above it, it will create a funky space. Obviously, the tile on the facing wall is on its own plane and the metal edging from the bathtub inside wall sits behind that plane. (I tried to create a mock up see image)

The backward tile represents the sheetrock, below it is the metal edging ,which will run horizontally around the bathroom, and then the rest of the tile. As you can see in the mock up this creates an odd connection.

Any thoughts on what to do

Metal edging doesn't seem to get a lot of information.

It is too hard for me to figure out what you are doing and it is hard to tell from pic. I don't know what questions to ask.

We couldn't get bullnose for the bathroom tiles we are using on our walls. So I thought the metal edging would work.

The picture attached has an outside corner that is causing me a funky issue with the metal edging (See red circle). The closest wall is drywall and then tiling on the bottom half of the wall with metal edging on its top row. The inside bathtub wall which will be full height tiled, will also have metal edging on the outside but are on a different plane (colors are different because I wasn't sure what color worked best with tiles).

The metal edging on the bathtub wall ends on a different plane as does the front half tiled wall. So I am not quite sure what to do.

Attached is another mock up, hopefully easier to understand.

If my tile from the inside of the bathtub walls would stick out half an inch then I could easily connect both metal edges as an "L". But that is not the case.

I will be back mitering the corners and grouting btw, couldnt get that in the image.

since the half tiled wall and sheet rock are on two different planes because of the thickness of the tile you are going to have that. I don't know if you could piece of out side corner from paneling there and run the tile into it. OR, Bring the shower tile out past the corner and put window stop or something with a feathered edge on wall around corner above the other tile. or something with a feather edge above tile on closet wall. It is hard for me without seeing it.
