Beside this, do you put quarter round on tile?
Account for when your tile will need to wrap around corners, where it will meet the tub, and/or when it will meet the floor. When your tile meets the wall or when it's wrapping around another wall that's perpendicular to it, we recommend using a bullnose or quarter round trim.
Also, how do you install bullnose ceramic tile? Apply a layer of mastic adhesive to the back of each individual piece of bullnose tile with the notched trowel. Gently place each piece of bullnose on the wall and press it into place so that the mastic bonds with the wall. Place spacers in between each piece for the grout joints.
In this way, how do you install quarter round ceramic?
Apply a generous amount of tile mastic at the back of the first quarter round that's designated for a particular edge. Hold a tile spacer at the corner piece with one hand. Set the piece firmly and squarely in place against the outer edge of the field tile, and against the spacer at the corner piece.
Should baseboard be installed on top of tile?
In my experience, baseboard can either be installed before or after the tile, but if it is installed before, the baseboard is installed at the level the tile will be, leaving a gap below the baseboard to accommodate the tile.
