Trying to figure out what border tile to use?


Working on a bathroom project? Use this as an alternative to an expensive border tile for a much cleaner look.  The contractor just used simple 3” x 6” white subway tile (costs approx. $2.00 sq. ft.) for the main tile. The trick here is instead of a border tile, we used an aluminum strip (which is only about $1 per foot). We used manufacturer Schluter Systems’ product on this job. After that we caulked and painted the strip with the same paint as the wall color. Easy AND inexpensive.
