Mix of tile and wood window trim

I’m building a shower where the tile on one of the walls reaches the side of an existing window.

Can’t move the window and I’m waffling on how to trim it out

Should I wrap the tile on the jamb and up to the window or stop the tile short (flush with the edge of the jamb) and add a wood trim?

I have a Schluter edge trim for the tile below and above the window.

I’m afraid that either way it’s going to look weird. What’s the “least weird” configuration?

Welcome to the forum, Dale!

If you aren’t going to install a shower door, you could consider picture-framing the perimeter of the window with a chair-rail style tile (to mostly mimic traditional wood casing) and your choice of either tiling the jamb or using wood.

Tonto Goldstein... but my friends call me Bubba

Help an awesome summer camp!

Are you continuing the tile along that wall over and under the window, Dale?
If I recall correctly my memory is excellent, but my ability to access it is intermittent.
