Been advised to move this post to the uk forum, didn’t realise it was in the USA forum

Would anybody have any advice the best way to silicone these bumpy tiles or should I grout because of the bumpy form? . I think doing a bead profile would be really messy as the silicone bead would be up and down up and down. Was thinking running a bead of silicone along and using flat edge of profiling tool to make silicone flush with the edge of the skirting tile or filling the gaps with grout but would this not crack over time or would the silicone eventually crack if I’d be filling it flush with skirting, stuck what’s best to do. Any advice would be great 😊 thanks IMG_0654.jpeg IMG_0678.jpeg

Tackled the silicone today, and turned out great considering I’ve not done it very often and the style of tiles. 😃🍻
