Bullnose tile is recognizable because of its characteristic rounded edges. It's viewed as an edge treatment or trim piece, and is often used to cover corners or frame the perimeter of a tile design. Many tile designs are also available with matching bullnose_tiles.

How do you calculate tiles? Multiplying the length by the width provides you withthe square footage of the project area. For example, if the room measures 10 feet wide by 12 feet long, multiply 10 by 12. The square footage of this room is 120 square feet. Translate the square footage to the amount of tile you need.

What is Cap tile? Wall cap tiles serve a similar purpose as chair rail molding above a paneled wall; they finish the upper edge instead of leaving the field tiles at an abrupt stop with no transition to the painted or wallpapered surface aboveit.
