Have you ever heard about the term bullnose tile? Do you know what the meaning of that particular term is? Just in case that you have no idea about that, such thing is actually related to the installation of tile in your interior. Such term means that the tile itself is having its own finished edges so that it can be installed along with wall tile. That is the main purpose of this type of tile as a matter of fact. Usually this particular type has rounded edges that will look good in the finished spots or transitional spots of the tile itself.
Unfortunately such type of tile is not always needed in the installation of tiles. Thus you may want to know the proper ways of avoiding the use and the need of such type of tile. Among the ways is to actually caulk the edge. How to do so? It is actually a simple thing just as you apply the caulk in the spaces between tiles itself. You may need to use masking tape before applying the caulk in the edge of the last tile. Simply fill the gap between the actual tile and the masking tape and you will have a good look of the tile finish without having to use the bullnose type.
Another way that you may need to do in order to avoid using bullnose type in finishing tile installation is to use a rail molding. So, it is true that the ways to finish an installation of tile offer various options. You can actually consider the use of dental molding, pencil molding, cornice molding, and of course rail molding. In making sure that the end result is perfect, you should look for the rail molding in the same color as the tile. Otherwise you may look for the molding in a kind of complementary color with the tile.
One more of the thing to do is to actually finish the tile installation using metal edge. This is also a great way to bring contemporary and industrial flairs into the interior decoration. The so called metal transition strips are your best bet in this matter. There is the L shaped version of the metal that will help you to deal with the finished edges that actually need the use of bullnose tile but you want to switch the bullnose with the metal strips for a better appeal.
