I had a similar situation in my bathroom. I ran my bullnose from the ceiling to the floor on the outside of the tub. The bullnose went about 1/2" past the window trim. I ended up notching it to fit. ...

I like the two full tile layout. The small tiles on the side are too eye catching and distracting to me. The large side pieces blend and flow nicer IMHO.
Good luck with your project!

Sanded is the way to go

I would return the unsanded and buy sanded. The unsanded grout will shrink and crack if it is used to fill a 3/8" gap.

I am not a pro, but I have been reading this forum for some time and have...
