I believe this is what they are called when all walls are tiled, no glass, you know what I mean It's what I am having in the ensuite. Now the tiler has said he will be putting that rounded edging on the corners and around the tiled cutout (shampoo, soap section) Does everyone have this put on, is it absolutely necessary? I pictured it more square, tile against tile. We are also having strips of aluminium as a feature after every row along the length of the wall, going around into the shower and along the inside wall of the recess. I think having this edging will spoil this as well. Back to the question, will it look unfinished without it?

Because the colour isn’t on the edges….is why your tiler wants to use the trim.
I personally think its an old look and may take away from what you are planning.

I hve a stainlees steel look for that edging - maybe this will tie in with the feature you are having.
That’s a better idea!

He wanted to use the stainless steel or aluminium strips but because of all the other feature strips between every row of tiles up that wall I thought that would look overdone. I am sure I have seen others without the edging, must find photos.

Yes it makes sense thanks. In my bathroom now we have a step up to the bath and then where the top of the bath tiles meets the sides is exactly how I want it done, (does that make sense?) There is no need to have the edging strips if it's done right.

Maybe you could swap the Ens and WIR in the original design? Something like this idea. Probably easier for plumbing work too. Ask your designer to re-model them and check…
