Shower Curb inside corner treatment
 
1 Attachment(s)
I've found some radius trim (quarter-cove base and a cove inside corner) and plan to use the quarter-cove in the shower stall where wall meets floor and also where wall meets wall. But I'm not sure what to do at the intersection of the top of the shower-curb top with the wall. See pic. Recommendations appreciated (except to forget about the quarter cove :) )

See if they make a quarter-round piece. Then just butt that into the wall flat. Or top the curb with 2 pieces of bullnose. For the inside corner there, if they do not make a 'cap' piece for the cove there's not much you CAN do. You'll have to improvise. See if you can just cut a piece of something to make a cap, put cut end down and see how it looks grouted up.

Some fancy cutting, and you can prob take that cove piece and make your own piece which would look fine after grouting. Experiment.

They don't make every tile for every application, its almost never perfect. I've often gone over layout with a homeowner and ended up changing things and them taking back tiles to the store they got them at because doing it the way they had thought wasn't going to work. In the end, they are always happy.
