Wrapping inside corners with this tile

This tile has a textured, bumpy surface. Every wall was centered, which meant I couldn’t use the offcuts from the back wall to wrap around to the sides. So on every row, the texture on the two adjacent corner tiles is different.

On the side walls, I just made a straight cut to meet the textured back wall. So that silicone joint varies in width.

Would you folks have done inside corners differently?

I probably would have taken the easy way out and done an engineered corner from Schluter.

The uneven face of that tile may have still showed a little where it got to the joint, just not as pronounced.

This profile has a pocket on one side that lets you slide the end in, giving you a much cleaner line. https://www.schluter.com/schluter-us...KE/p/DILEX_EKE

We have done a few of these or worse yet the wave tile proper . We just try to make it flow as naturally as possible but haven’t figured out any more magic than that .
It looks great by the way !

Thanks trask.

Not sure if this is the wave tile you’re referring to, but this is a project of mine from a while back. I had spent quite a bit on prep time getting corners plumb and square so mitering the inside corners would carry the wave through.

You followed those wavy patterns all the way around.

Usually a mitered inside corner helps ease the transition, I’ve straight cut the less pronounced textured tiles because a clean caulked joint does a good job at feathering the look.

Now outside corners.... those are a PITA!

If you're not going to go to the insanely nice lenghts Lou went to, I don't know of any solution to this, including any Schluter profiles. (I would only do what Lou did if I was doing hourly work, lol)
