Tile / Baseboard

Post by guarddog » Thu Jan 17, 2019 4:38 am

I am going to redo a bathroom, installing a penny floor with a clear epoxy coating.

In addition I plan to tile the bottom portion of the wall.

This got me thinking about the baseboard... I can't nail the baseboards in, so how does one go about finishing the floor/wall connection when you have wall tile down to the floor?

I actually noticed this site has a photo of a small bathroom with what appears to be tile on the wall and baseboard. How does that work?!?

Interesting, I had to research that. Sounds like it would probably rip the tiles off the wall when needing to take the baseboard off!

Install a nailer strip at the base before you set the tile strip should be on the same plane as the finish tile.

If you pulling off baseboard you are likely doing something major anyways but you can just use a few dabs of PL(maybe one every 2 feet ) to hold it on. Clarences idea is a great one if you figure you don't like the PL one though.

The existing base is coming off for sure (water damaged) and possibly some drywall as well.

Yea, I think I like the suggestion from Clarence....

Thanks guys.

I just meant your original comment of the baseboard attached with PL pulling off tile if you ever had to remove it.
