Tile to drywall corner transition question

Hi,

I'm looking for some advice on making a corner with a wall that is already tiled and drywall that is set not flush with the tile. (See picture for better detail)

I'd use a corner bead but the tile has already been set unfortunately, so I can't put it over the tile. Is this something I just have to fill with joint compound or use a plastic corner liner to hide it (after walls are painted)?

Thanks

run another schluter trim piece just like the one terminating the tile behind your drywall. there are many profiles available. or you could use J bead trim.

Hi Jason,

Besides the J-metal for drywall there is also an L-metal bead that will cover the drywall edge and just touch the tile. The metal is paintable.

The big orange store sells a notched vinyl corner bead (but it can be had elsewhere). It looks like this:

The notched side can easily be trimmed down to cover your drywall edge and butt up flush against your edge trim. It is then tacked into place using 3M 77 spray glue. Once you do this you can finish your corner with drywall mud (but for this I would use a hot mud). You can then prime and paint and finish it like the rest of the wall. You'll need to caulk the corner at the bottom of your edge trim. This should give you a similar look as if you properly finished the corner prior to tile (what you should have done in the first place) but will be weaker and more prone to cracking than if it was properly finished. It will also make the edge trim look more narrow compared to other places where the edge trim is visible.

L bead would be easiest and it would give an nice crisp corner.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm going to try the L-bead but I'm a little confused because I thought the short side of the L shape was supposed to be pressed against the edge of the drywall but in my case since there is a 1/2 inch gap since the tile wall doesn't come flush with the drywall, will the L-bead still work properly if there isn't any support behind the small portion of the L (aside from it sitting against the tile wallboard).

Thanks!

Not quite sure I get your question but I'll take a stab. You want to bring drywall edge flush with tile? I wouldn't recommend it.


This is how I'd suggest you finish off. Too late in the game for much else.

Yeah that's basically what I was getting at, but I'm guessing if I wanted it flush then I'd have to tear down the drywall and hang new drywall that comes out flush with the tile and then use a J-bead or L-bead on the drywall. Was hoping there was a way to get around that

Thanks

Jason if you use the method I suggested you could actually square the bead the way you want it when you tack it in place and then fill any unevenness with the drywall mud.

What about a schluter quadec profile, but the drywall is already up and a profile is already on the tile side??

ugh....

grind off the profile from the tile and then slip a quadec under the drywall???

You could hang L bead or corner bead out beyond drywall and fill the blank space behind it with mud. I'd use setting compound.

My concern would be that you're spanning a joint with potentially differential movement and hoping that doesn't telegraph through the assembly in time. Guess you could try and let us know how it fared in a year or two.


In my experience, flushing of almost any surfaces in a structure such as a home is a lesson in frustration. Offsets will typically hide irregularities better.

If I were to look at your installation from the beginning, I"d either hold back tile assembly from corner of wrap around it. Flush kinda demands perfectly plumb, which is frequently not houses.

I'm leaning toward the L-bead for sure, likely will be a game-time decision on which way I go with it -- flush or not. Obviously the easy route and probably correct route at this point is to leave it offset. Just pains me to do that since it won't be a nice clean corner

Thanks for all your ideas!
