I'm looking to renovate the bathroom after leaving it for some time since we moved in. Currently there is a very narrow strip of tiles on the right side of the window and I'm asking for advice on how to deal with this when I retile. Please see picture.

I was going to use bigger tiles (probably 600x300) and don't feel confident that cutting small strips would look right. Would you suggest half tiling the walls? Adding an architrave round the window, any other ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Simon.

At the end of the day, it’s all about personal choice. A tiler would be able to make the cuts usually with a score and snap, worst case grinder or wet cutter. Someone with less experience could still cut the tiles but if your confidence and design preference directs you to an alternative then who is to say what is right or wrong?

Thanks Hobnob. I do feel I could cut the strips but wonder whether such narrow cuts would look as good as an alternative. Like you say it’s a design preference and I wondered if there were any other options that people had experience of.

Depending on size and design of room etc, you could just dot/dab plasterboard on that wall to run the wall straight into the window and do away with the little return.
