View Full Version : Bull Nose Corners

I've finished the marble tile on the floor, and am now setting tile as a baseboard molding. I've cut the pieces to 12"x 5.5" and radiused the top edge.

The challenge is how to wrap the tile around the bull-nose sheet-rock corners. There are only 2, so a little manual grinding is ok.

The only idea I've come up with is to cut a reverse miter on the pieces approaching the corner and placing a small piece with mitered corners on top. The small piece would be epoxied in place and hand ground to make an outside radius complimnetary to the sheet-rock bull-nose.

I'll try to attach a drawing of my idea.

Any advice is more than welcome.

Cheers,

Chris

There are oak corners made specifically for this type of application. I would install them and tile up to them for your best look.

Thanks Todd, but it's gotta be marble.

Hi Chris,

It will work, but I would try to pre-fab the corners and do the grinding and polishing before they are placed. Maybe you can form the corners as Todd suggests, only form them out of marble. :)
