Tile Transition Help Please
June 26, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi! We are completing a full house remodel and we're stuck with how to transition the tile from the living room area to the enclosed porch. The doors leave about an inch that shows the tile when in the porch. DH doesn't think we can just grout the end of the tile because it will be too thick, he wants to tile the siding under the small step. I don't think that will look good.

We plan to have wood floors in the porch. Anyone have any ideas? The tile is actually Philly Swirl Travertine. Pictures will hopefully explain the issue better than I can.

Might be a little unorthodox but yes tile down the siding if you don't want a 1 inch grout line showing

It would look much better if you If you can match your existing tile for your step.

My first inclination was the obvious: tile under the doors to the edge then down the siding, but then I reconsidered. Perhaps 1) a custom single piece threshold the width of the double doors and level with the existing tile or 2) bullnose tiles in the same pattern and scale right to the edge of the step or 3) a running bond pattern using the existing tile cut in long rectangles rather than squares?
