Re: Tiling around switches with uneven tiles
Use some spacers or washers to hold the switch out from the wall a little further than normal -- like about 1/16" or so. This will result in a gap around the entire plate. Place some masking tape on the back side of the plate, then grout around the plate. The masking tape will help keep the grout from sticking to the plate.
Maybe. I haven't ever tried this. I haven't ever seen it done. But, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
