Rounded corners

We wound up doing compound mitered corners. What is the better approach here?

. . . Ask client if they really want rounded for tile portion, if not - un-round them. Other than that looks good

Thanks. Client is happy with the corners.

What I meant was to ask what other ways are there to treat round corner beads?

Aside from putting on a right angle corner bead or doing a compound miter.

Hi Chris,

I like the look of what you did, and I would probably do the same thing. The other way I can think of would be to locate quarter-rounds in that shade of stone. Lots of luck on that, though.

This is another way. But doesn't work very well with diagonal patterns.

Thank you everyone. I like how that looks Nelson, with the offset continuing.

So glad they don't use those rounded beads around me!! Both treatments look great. Lot of work in such a small area. Hope the customer appreciated your attention to detail.

one easy way to make it better is to use a belt sander to put a round over on your cuts, so your cuts look tumbled like the rest of the

Pencils in a matching stone work too, if you back bevel the tile for a tighter fit.
