How to Finish the Tile Edge in a Shower With No Bullnose

by:Shihui     2020-03-07
The beef nose tile has finished the edge and wall tiles should be installed.They usually have soft rounded edges for creating transitions between tiles and wall walls.However, not all tiles have a cow nose.In these cases, one of several other methods can be used to complete the edges of the tile installation.In the shower facilities, this includes the vertical edge in front of the booth, and may also include the front edge of the ceiling tile.One of the reasons that cow nose tiles can\'t be used for all types of tiles is that some tiles have the ability to finish the edges themselves.The edges of glass tiles, rolling stone tiles and some tiles do not require separate edges.They can be mounted to the edge of the shower without the need to transition to the wall.Give the edge a clean water-Tight finish, place a masking tape at a seam off the edge of the last tile.Fill this gap between the tile and masking tape with smooth caulk beads.This will finish the edge without extra tiles.The cow nose tile is not the only one that can be used to complete the installation edge.Other edges can include several types of decorative shapes such as pencil, dental, track, and cornice.If possible, use decorative styling of the same material and color as other tiles.For example, some stones may have shapes that match the color of the field tile.If there is no track molding of the same color, consider using track molding of complementary colors.This may be a color to extract an accent from the rest of the room, or it may be a color to add a new color separately.Options may include the use of blue tile edges with white field tiles, the use of Bardiglio marble with Carrara marble, or the use of glass tile edges with tile mounting.If the shower tiles are contemporary in appearance, consider using metal edges.Metal transition zones are often used as a way to end tiles without finished edges.The metal strip is shaped like a \"L\", with the long side sitting under the last row of tiles and the short side sitting next to the edge of the tile.This hides the edge of the tile and creates a delicate transition that is done.The metal strip has various finishes and some different profiles.If you install stones or tiles on the shower wall and there is no beef nose edge, consider making it yourself.Tiles like stone and porcelain are made of the same material;It is possible to grind and finish an edge of the tile to make a cow nose.Use a tile wet saw with a cow nose blade.The blade will grind along the edge of the tile into a curve to make it gently transition to the wall.Then use an angle grinder with a polishing pad to buffer the edges to match the finish of the rest of the tile.
