What kind of cove molding for tile floors

My contractor has installed wall tiles (to the floor) and is about to install floor tiles (to the wall). What type of finishing molding does one use to cover the join between the wall and the floor tiles

There are rubber moldings (I think they're actually made of vinyl which come in every color imaginable. You could find one that blends with the tile, and would hold up well in a shower stall or some other wet place.

Or else you could go with a tile molding, which can get pretty expensive. They're made in most every shape that standard wood moldings are made in.

A wood molding might stick out like a sore thumb, but you could probably find a stain or decorative paint finish that would blend it nicely. It would definitely be your least expensive option.

Ya know, come to think of it, we have a tiled shower and it doesn't have any molding at all. If the cuts are strait an clean enough, it might look fine without it.

Ther are many designs in the cove molding that may be nice in your room. Tr to match what is going to be up top molding with the bottom molding. I would actually go with the flatter plastic type molding as this can bee replace a lot easier and is cheaper.

When you are installing tile, it's best to use some kind of vinyl cove molding, or rubber based cove molding. They offer classes at The Home Depot for these types of tasks, and can give advice on what type of molding will work best for you.
