Edging an alcove tub

Tiling an alcove tub enclosure and was curious to know if anyone has done or seen where tile edging is used to "frame" the wall tile. That is use edging where the tile meets the tub, where the tile meets the ceiling, inside corners, and ends. How would this look? Are there any drawbacks to this?

Also anyone have any experience using a Durock niche? The are made from plastic but have a "felt" lining that accepts any thinset. Thoughts?

Thanks for all the help.

Welcome Art. Can you clarify what exactly you mean by "edging". It could be interpreted a lot of ways.

If you're talking about metal profiles such as Schluter makes, I've used them extensively for perimeters on tile installation.

Perhaps link to what you have in mind so we can better answer.

Yes, i was referring to the Schluter type of edging. i know they are used extensively but perhaps not in the way I was thinking of using them - like a picture frame around the walls. Thanks. Art

Hi Art,

I don't see any reason why that couldn't be done. I would certainly be different.

Drywall to tile transition

Doing an alcove tub shower wall tile and need some tips and tricks on how to best plan for to finish the transition from tile to painted wall on the outside walls. I plan to use Schluter edging, but was wondering where best to end the durock vs drywall. Better to end the durock short of the where the tile will end by a few inches? In other words, a few inches of the tile would set on drywall? What do you think or what do you do? Thanks for the information in advance. Art

Art, it'll help if you'll keep all your project questions on one thread so folks can see what you're working on and what's been previously asked and answered. A moderator can give it a more generic title any time you'd like to suggest one.

Your CBU and waterproofing should usually extend at least a few inches beyond the front of your tub and down to the floor, forming a "tub leg." You can tile a little beyond that onto your drywall if you like.

My opinion; worth price charged.
