Wall tile around outlets

Are there specific tile pieces for incorporating wall electrical outlets?

Unfortunately there are not special tiles for going around electrical boxes.  Basically you need to cut the tile(s).  How that's done depends on what kind of tiles and what tools you have access to.  A wet saw works in most cases but I've also freehanded the cuts with a right angle grinder with a diamond blade.

 

You'll also need to extended the electrical boxes to properly support the devices.  There are both plastic and metal box extenders available.

Thanks much.  I'll go to an electrical shop for box extenders.  I found tungsten-carbide blades on line to cut right angles.  Again, thanks for the advice
