bullnose tile
 n.— «Because ceramic tile is often 1/4-inch thick—and sometimes thicker—the transition from tile to the wall surface must be made with trim tiles that have a finished edge on at least one side. These special tiles frequently are referred to as bullnose tiles. They have a soft, rounded edge that is the same color as the tile.» —“Tile backsplashes add focal point to kitchens, bathrooms” by Tim Carter Arizona Republic (Phoenix) June 30, 2007.
