View Full Version : Is this simply preference or for a reason?

The question is when running bullnose on a shower install, is the preferred method to run the BN down the wall and stop above the baseboard or is it better to trim back the baseboard and run it all the way to the floor?

Both. Some situations have preferences and some have reasons while some situations have a preference and a reason. Depends on builder, designer, installer, trim guy, looks, lack of a well thought out plan or having a plan........

Lots of variables with that question and IMO there is not cut and dry answer. Good question though. Wondered the same thing myself until after doing and being involved in several jobs, in the end it was one of those variables or a combination that determined the end result.

It's one of those particulars where the phrase, "opinions are like (insert dirty word), everbody has one" applies.

I would stop it at the baseboard if the tile was thinner than the baseboard.

Sounds like a purely aesthetic decision, Mike, but it might help a great deal if we knew just where this trim piece was going, eh?

Can you post a photo of your proposed installation? We've got folks here who like to deal with the decorative aspects.
