Tile experts re: cove
I am currently doing a bathroom in 2x2 porcelain, walls and floor. It worked out so that the floors transition with the built-up cove base, and we were able to do coves vertically on the shower wall corners as well, and I really like this. I know 2x2 porcelain is pretty old-school--I couldn't even get the 100% correct corner that was coved in both horizontal and vertical directions. They stopped making it, and I was the first person to ask for in a few years.
I am doing two more baths, and in one of them I want to use conventional 4.25 square tile. It comes with a 4.25 square cove tile, and I was wondering how this would translate also in the vertical, since the cove is so much less of a cove
With the 2 x 2, the cove tile is a whole tile curved in half, where as the 4.25 tile just has a coved lip at the edge.
I am going to mock it up with some tile before I buy it, but I was wondering if anyone had already done this.
There are 4x tiles that come with an actual separate cove corner but the particular tile I want to use is 1) actually color matched to the fixtures and 2) about 20% of the price of the tile that has the separate cove corners
Thoughts on how this would install?
