View Full Version : How the heck do I cap this nicely?

I'm preparing to gut and redo our main bathroom. I'm set in most respects (although I'm sure I'll be posting on here for more advice) but there's one portion of the tiling that I can't wrap my head around.

I have an outside corner which is formed by one wall of the tub alcove and the wall that's beside it. I whipped up the attached picture to try and explain what I mean (my tiling skills are better than my drawing skills, I swear!)

The areas in red will have tile. The area in blue will be painted. What I am trying to figure out is what kind of metal trim to use on the part where the painted wall will meet with the tiled shower wall.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the links. I have already looked at the Schlueter trim and think they will do the job. My question is more around what pieces to get some that the combination of trim doesn't look terrible.

My concern is that the bottom part of the wall will have tile on both sides, while the upper part of the wall will only have tile on one side, and will be painted on the other.
