    Can you please let me know if a product like Schlüter DILEX-EKE or equivalent internal profile trim is generally visually cleaner than using silicone? I assume 3 way internal corners could look messy if not cut correctly but was wondering if I should go for some sort or trim like this for where my floor joins the walls, and corners etc? Funny but I have never seen one installed and have only ever seen sealant used for internal corners etc.

    Also assume if everything has been correctly waterproofed one could use trim like this for internal corners in a wet room, or is it not advised?

    Hi, personally don’t see the advantage of using trim in corners etc, over silicone. It’s more expensive and you will have to bed /seal tile trim interface with sealant anyway. If a good quality silicone is used ,applied well, (what’s not to like).
