    Hello, I'm not a tiler, I'm a customer. Just had a job done, a little bit to finish off tomorrow. In general an ok quality except I cannot stand the corners and it is poor/scabby around the window. Is this acceptable, yes or no, what if anything could/should be done to improve.

    Is there a trim that could go in corners or around the window.

    Not happy.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Sorry but it seems it has been poorly set out, and poorly executed.

    Poor set out I agree. Not sure what you mean about the edges and window ?

    I can tell that, but what constructive can be done to rectify.

    If you zoom in on the window picture you can see the tiles are badly cut, rough.

    Set out could have been perhaps improved but not the end of the world.. your pictures don't really show much

    Ah yeah I see the chipping now after zooming in.. I reckon that could be sorted with some clever mastic application

    The plumber said that the tiler should have offset the center line and have a small tile at each side or one side. You know what tiling is a very special skill.

    Easiest bodge is to simply rake out the grout on the slithers and next to the trim on the window and re-grout with a colour best matching the tile.
    That would disguise the chips a little and take your eye away from the slithers.
    Stupid mistake on the set out and poor quality cutting.

    I did say that to the plumber, it is a bodge though. Grey grout and white tiles, leaves nowhere to hide. How would you approach rectifying the two corners?

    There should begin silicone in the corner, whereas it looks like it's grout at present. Them thin slithers don't really align either which is obviously not great

    The trim against the window, firstly why is it there?
    Secondly, how far below the window does it go?
    Difficult to assess possible solution with such a close up image I’m afraid.

    Its grey silicon in the corners and the slithers don't line up.
