Base question

How many of you install the base and wall tile first, then tile up to the base? I know its a little more time consuming to do it this way but I think it looks like crap when the base sits atop the floor tile.

Commercial...always. Good for mopping.

But in residential...never. If they want cove base, they get the the type that sits atop the floor with the bullnosed foot...looks less commercial to me. But it's been awhile since I put cove base like that in...seems to be getting really scarce at the tile shops. Doesn't bother me, though. I'd much rather put in bullnoses if something is desired at the floor. The style looks cleaner to me.
