My experience doing flooring is limited to edge-to-edge boards. In fact, I’ve been terrified of doing tile because of the problem of making the edges meet the wall.
This video by youtuber This Old Tony (one of my favorites!) is pretty simple-seeming. In fact, it’s so simple I can’t figure out why it works at all. Or, I can’t figure out if it’s hard to figure out.
