I have a minor issue with where my shower tray is going. The ensuite is an L shape and the shower area fits into the corner of the L.

The block layer has made an error with his measurements. His measurements he built are from one side to the other at the front is 1210mm. And at the back wall it's 1220mm. 930mm inwards. My shower tray is 1190x895mm.

If I had noticed this I would have boarded one side of the walls but now it's tiled down to near the tray, im wanting to know what options I have to close this area off. My two options I can come up with is cut a piece of timber, screw to the wall and tile over this to close of this gap.

Option two would be to buy a tile bath/shower trim and install where the tiles meet the tray and adjust it to close this area off and fill with silicone underneath!

If I go with option two, what is the width of these trims. I do prefer the clean cut look where tile meets the tray however at this stage, I can live with it. IMG_20211118_153940771.jpg
