To add texture, an oriental rug, and herringbone marble backsplash is added. To show off the marble’s character, the large tile size and invisible grout lines are perfect. As the windows cut the walls into too many small pieces, to create a cohesive feel, you can wrap around the whole wall space as here.

How do you cut tile trim around a window?

To cut your tile trim, a miter saw is necessary. Once you have marked where you would like to make your cuts, lay the tile on the miter stand and push it against the marked area, next make your cut while holding the trim steady against the block.

Before making your cuts though, you should decide what kind of corner joint you would like. You can either have a flat square joint or a 45-degree miter joint. While the square joint is definitely the easy method, for a cleaner look opt for the miter joint. As miter joints are quite complicated, it may be best to rely on a skilled professional.

Where do you start tiling a wall with a window?

For a clean look, there are a couple of methods. For smaller tile sizes, you start tiling from the bottom corner of the window sill and tiling up one side. Next, you should create your even pattern above the window to make sure your rows above are uninterrupted. Finally, you can tile up the other side meeting the top border.

For larger tiles, you can choose to tile continuously around the window which means that once you tile the bottom of the window, determine on the wall which tiles overlap with the opening. Then window trim the excess of these tiles and install them. Alternatively, you can add flat tiles or pencil tiles around your window borders and then follow the same method for a nicer look.
