Edges - Bullnose, wood, metal, naked?
After I searched for the term bullnose (which I now really, really hate), I came across this forum, where I have now been for the last 2 hours! Wow! Found out answers to some future questions, when we hit the kitchen next.
For now, we are working on the bathroom. I thought that bullnose or the rounded tiles were just for aesthetics, but now I'm not so sure.
Bathroom shower/tub surround.
Tiling walls from tub to ceiling with 12x12 ceramic.
"Accenting" with 1x1 glass tiles, in a 3" strip, through the middle.
So we will have the edges on each side to cover... or not.
I said, "let's just caulk the edge or leave it."
Husband said "let's find a bullnose or decorative tile."
Contractor said "I can mitre? the edges, but it will COST."
Since our accent tiles have copper in them, I'd like to find a copper looking strip of some kind? Can you use a metal strip as bullnose/end? Any ideas where? Am I cracked in the head?
Or I see on here that people are leaving the edges bare, like Europe - does that require some kind of caulk or something to not deteriorate?
Wood? I saw where the wood worker who owned this house before, put what looks like wood or maybe a plastic wood, along one boarder of the tiles that run around our wood burner.
