Porcelain Solid Color & Molded Pieces
Properly selected trim tile gives any installation a clean line and facilitates cleaning. The most common types of functional (as opposed to decorative) trim tile are:
• Bullnose – Rounded top edge used as the last tile in a wall installation that doesn’t extend to the ceiling or up to the cabinet line, or to turn an outside edge. A bullnose for a mud-set installation has a deeper curve than that for thin-set. A double bullnose has two rounded edges to navigate a corner.
• Cove – Curved concavely to join flush with floor tile or form an inside corner.
• Bead – A narrow, convexly curved piece designed to turn an outside corner.
• Inside corner – a thin piece that curves concavely to handle an inside corner.
• Base trim – Curved concavely on the bottom to meet flush with floor tile and with a bullnose at the top for a lean finish.. Also called a round-top cove base.
• V-cap – Curved edge used on the front edge of a counter to prevent spillage. Also known as counter trim or no-drip counter edge.
• Quarter round – Used to create continuity where 90 degree angles occur.
• Half round – Thin semi cylindrical pieces used as decorative accents or to frame or separate areas.
• Windowsill – Also known as step nosing, used to provide a rounded surface where two planes meet at a windowsill or stair tread.
