Outer corners and glass & stone tile backsplash

rivkadrJuly 8, 2013

We're going to be installing a glass & stone tile backsplash soon in our kitchen, and we have an outer corner that we need to wrap the tile around.

We are hoping to use a tile like this:

We're a bit stymied on what to do with the outer corner edge, though. Snipping the tile will end up leaving a weird rough edge on one of the sides. What are our options?

Edging for glass tile was just discussed recently. There are examples posted on the link below. There are other past threads about this too if you do a google search. Hope this helps

Start at the corner and work your way back each way. Your link didn't work for me. We have glass and stone mosaic 5/8" squares. Sometimes you can fudge those last few pieces just a bit (cut the mesh) and narrow or widen the grout lines in minuscule amounts to have things come out even. If not, the cut end butts into the wall or inside corner. Hmmmm, unless you have staggered tile, then you need to look at Schluter metal edges to cover those cuts.

Schulter edge. Comes in a few designs, and many finishes. I used stainless in my kitchen, brushed nickel in one bathroom, and white in another.

See photo towards the end of the link.
