Tile question: miter-cut or bullnose corners?
Bill, Mongo or anyone, I'd appreciate if you could guide me on a tile issue. In our bathroom, where the entry wall meets the tub alcove, I'm wondering about the best way for our contractor to tile that wall intersection. In our existing builder-basic bathroom, there are bullnose tiles on one of the walls where the tiles meet. The owner of the tile store said not to bother with bullnose, and to have the installer miter cut the tiles where they meet. My contractor says he can certainly do the mitered installation, but his only hesitation is that it can make for a pretty sharp edge which might not be desirable in a relatively small bathroom. So I'd welcome thoughts on bullnose vs. mitering the tiles on an outside joint.
I'm thinking the same issue of an outside joint occurs when you tile a niche in the shower, so I'm curious whether that situation calls for the same or a different solution.
Thanks in advance!
