Tile Base Mold
I have a question re: ceramic base molding. We went with Daltile base molding, if anyone is familiar with it, it is shaped like upside-down V-cap/chair rail (see pic) & for some reason it is glazed on the bottom which is meant to sit atop the floor. This brings me to my question: is this base molding supposed to sit on top of the floor tile or should I install it like cove molding, leaving a space for it between the floor tile & the wall? The face of the base mold has a curve on the bottom which would seem to suggest the shape of the shoe on wood baseboard.
This nice curve would be completely covered if it were installed like cove base so I think it is supposed to sit on top of the floor. But then should I caulk or grout the curved edge-to-floor joint?
