Tiling a brick fireplace


I'm refacing my floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace with tile. The firebox is raised about 6"from the floor and I plan to tile across the bottom (right down to floor level, basically encircling the firebok open with tile)). Since this is a gas fireplace, I'm removing the hearth and plan to run the bottom row of tile right down to the floor and butt the carpet up against the tile. Is this going to look bad? Any suggestions or other approaches? The other walls in my house have 2 1/4 painted baseboard, but It didn't seem to make sense to try and put baseboard over the tile. Thanks for any helpful advice!

Hi Scotty,

This should look OK as long as you get the line in front of the tile very straight.

Be careful when installing the tack strip to not bang the tile.
