When tiling a wall in a bathroom, how do you get a finished edge look?

by Julia
We just moved into a new home that we built, after losing our home of 20 years to a fire. We are in the same property and were taking the finishing one day at a time. In the master bath - the wall where the sink will be is going to be tiled in a soft green marble. Looking for tips and tricks for a successful tile project!
Tile will be installed vertically.
Floor to ceiling wall to be tiled. We're wanting to make a concrete trough style sink, with double faucets mounted on the wall.

    Most wall tiles that you purchase from a store that carries them will have have what's called a "bull nose" piece that has a rounded edge to it that you use as the last piece in your line of tiles. Just make sure to line them up properly with your tiles so they don't end of looking cockeyed.

    In the drywall section you should be able to find rounded cornerbead. Most cornerbead is squared off and made of metal. The rounded cornerbead is a white type of plastic.

    Look for Slutter strips at the big box stores. Or at your tile supplier. They come in a variety of finishes and widths. They have a lip that goes into the grout behind the tile. You then grout tthie tile and a seam between the tile and strip.
