When tile is thicker than doorframe

Posted by axxis_rose (My Page) on

The wall tile I selected is not flush with the doorframe-it will stick out a little when placed right next to it. What is usually done in these situations? Should the tile be cut at an angle? My contractor suggested putting the pencil liner between the doorframe and the tile but I think that looks weird. Maybe he should thin down the wall in that area? Thanks for any suggestions!

I'd add a back band around the outside edge of the door trim.

It can be fancy profile or a simple piece of 3/4" by 1" (or as needed) rectangular trim. Here are a couple of visuals:
