How do I finish my tile project?
Edge Profiles For Floor Coverings | Schlüter-Systems
We don't recommend leaving your tile edges bare. The unfinished tile edge is prone to chipping and cracks, and oftentimes just doesn't look very good. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to finish your tile for a polished, professional look. Say you're installing a 12x24" porcelain tile in your shower. How will you finish your edges and outside corners, such as where your tile ends on the wall and the corners of your curb, shower bench, or recessed shelves? A bullnose tile shown on the right side of our drawing will match your tile, but it also creates a 3" stripe down the edge of your shower, disrupting your pattern. A Schluter profile piece shown on the left side of our drawing will be thinner for a cleaner look, but you're introducing another material metal, colored PVC, or powder coated to the design.
