Need help with tile design in a bathroom.

monicajdumasJanuary 22, 2013
I am using ceramic tile and mosaic tile on my bathroom walls. I want to use the mosaic tile as a border around the room. Is it necessary to use a bullnose or chair rail when joing the ceramic and mosaic tile? My vision is to have the mosaic glass tile joining the 2 rows of ceramic tile. The look in the pictures I have seen look cleaner to me and more like one piece. In need of help soon.

You will not need to use bullnose tile but make sure your tile installer can make sure the face of both types of tile are flush with each other. He may need to build the wall out further for one tile or another. We have used Mirage tile before on projects which are paper thin and require the wall to be padded out behind the tile. This image shows a bathroom with bullnose tiles but they are not necessary. Also, use Grout Once instead of regular grout on shower walls because you will not have to seal the grout joints. Always use epoxy grout on tiled shower floors as well. Good luck

No need for bullnose unless you want it. If the mosaic is a different thickness than the ceramic, its not a problem to make the adjustment
