Herein, how do you round the edges of tile?

Use a bullnose blade on a wet-saw to achieve an evenly rounded profile on the edges. Cut the tiles to size first, then mark the edges to be rounded on the back of each tile with chalk or with a spot of tape on the front. Practice your bullnose technique on tile scraps until you get the hang of it.

Also Know, how do you finish tile edges with grout? Install the trim last, after you have finished grouting your tiles. Prepare the grout according to the instructions on the package. Secure the trim pieces to your wall or counter with tile glue or grout. Fill the spaces between the tiles with more grout, then wipe the excess grout off with a damp sponge.
