Finishing to a curved edge.

The plan is to tile the wall above the arch inside this shower. How would you recommend finishing the tile edge at the curve?


I was considering to cut bullnose wedges, but I think I'd end up sittin facing a corner with my shoes off hummin "Leaving on a Jet Plane" n eatin pickled herring.

Thanks, Pete

Hi Pete.

For starters, take a look at some of these arches others around here have done.

You could also do a search on arches and most likely find some other ideas as well.

Pete, make yourself some paper tiles to experiment with. This is a trial and error project.
