This diagram provides the most accurate illustration of specialized ceramic tile trimmers that I have seen. Using the right trimmer makes the installation look so much better.
I certainly do not know how to install tile. However, I do know a really good installation when I see one. I look for tight grout joints, carefully calculated and pre-planned cuts so there are no unsightly shapes in the grid and finally, in the case of ceramic tile, the use of correct trimmers. This edition of The Perfect Bath is about the very special tile pieces that are available to create an impeccable installation.
