An Innovative Installation System For Tile & Stone

When it comes to tile installations, there are so many bits and pieces that it can make your head spin. Tile, thin set, decorative accents, moldings, bullnose, grout…… the list could go on and on. Have you ever heard of Schluter? Schluter is an innovative installation system for tile & stone. They offer crack suppression membranes, waterproofing systems and shower drains. They also have a whole line of “profiles” – which are alternatives to bullnose for terminating tile!

Today we’re going to take a quick look at my favorite profile that Schluter offers: the Quadec!

is ‘a finishing and edge protection profile for tiled edges and outside corners of tiled surfaces, and is distinguished by its squared reveal surface.’ Not only does it protect tile edges from chipping, it also offers a sleek design aesthetic for any installation. It is versatile because it can be used on inside or outside corners!

Schluter Quadec is available in stainless steel, anodized aluminum, PVC, as well as textured and color-coated aluminum (<—- my favorite). The Trendline Collection offers neutral and modern colors that coordinate with many tile offerings! It’s easy to find a Quadec profile to compliment your tile choice. You can learn more about the Quadec and other profiles on Schluter’s website.

Some of my favorite recent installations utilize a Schluter Quadec profile instead of traditional bullnose. What do you think?
