i'm about to lay tile in a bathroom, i have tiled floors and read
several how to's on wall tile.
what i have been unable to find is any information on any way to
transition from the floor to that wall. the same sive and typ eof tile
will be used for both the floor an dt he wall.
can some on please tell me the best way to make the transition
makeing the corner between floor and wall. dou you just use squar tile
or is it better to use a tile that is L shaped?
should the wall tile be on top of the floor tile or should the wall
tile be placed first?
Does your tile even offer "L's". Most floor tile lines do not have
"specialty" pieces. At least the stores I shop in. (Not the borg stores)
I lay the floor tile to a close tolerance to the wall, 1/8" or less, and
then glue the wall tile to the wall with the same grout joint used in the
floor. 90 degree corner if your lucky.
They're common, just not necessarily in the tile that you want.
They're common in the more basic and commercial lines of tile.
For the record, almost all of my jobs have had a 90 degree transition
with the wall tile sitting on top (not literally) of the floor tile. I
then caulk that joint with a color matched caulk.
