Postby chris grayston » Thu Oct 25, 2007 7:00 pm

i'm about to tile around the window sill in the kitchen,i would like to know how to arrange the tiles .I know that they have to overlap on the horizontal ledge (with the edge of the tile covering the vertical tile),how are they supposed to go up the sides of the window(the recess?)please help if you can :?:

Simply Build It

I would always use a suitably coloured plastic edge strip around a window. Most tiles are not glazed on the edge, and therefore the finish will always look poor.
