I have a Schluter shower stall area which is approximately 3 ft by 3 ft that I am planning on tiling along with the rest of the bathroom. One of the problems is that the Schluter Kerdi board was installed on a different plane van one of the walls that turns into it. So it basically stands about a half of an inch proud of the rest of the wall. The top half of the main bathroom is Sheetrock and the bottom half will be glass tile. I'm basically looking for ideas on a transition. There is 3/4 in trim on the upper half of the wall along with the baseboard that is running around the entire perimeter of the bathroom. I was thinking of putting up some type of trim that's 5/8 of an inch or greater in sickness the border the outside of the shower stall and have the trim and tile from the main bathroom run into that and then put a Schluter Edge on the other side inside the stall. I was going to use PVC since it will be so close to the shower. But I don't know if this is the best idea. Looking for suggestions. I've got photos attached.

For the 1/2" protrusion, I would add a layer of 1/2" sheetrock and corner bead and finish the wall again, bringing it flush to your shower wall. CBU was overkill in the non wet area for tile, but no harm done. Finish the edges of the shower with either bullnose tile or Schluter tile trim metal pieces for a finished look.

Whether I add the layer of sheetrock or not I still need something to terminate my 1 by 6 trim into. that's what I was trying to figure out what would be best to do with that. the metal pieces are not thick enough to accommodate the termination and then I would have wood right up against a potentially wet area. I might still do what you were saying as well
