new floor meets old wall

We recently replaced a shower pan in an 1940's bath - all ceramic tile. So along the with the tile on the shower floor, we replaced the floor too, as there was bad wood under there. However,where new floor tiles meets old wall tiles, there are uneven spots and it is noticeable. Any idea on how to give this a more finished look? Thanks.

I don't understand what "uneven spots" are.

The grout line around the room is unven in spots where the floor meets the wall - it's wider in some spots than in others. Hope that is more clear. Thanks.

Only one cosmetic idea comes to mind without redoing the tiles around the edges.

There exists a ceramic cove base 'style' tile known as "saintary cove base". This particular product can be installed on the surface of existing wall tile and at the same time the extended toe of the cove base tile will extend out over the floor tile a little. My guess is you could cover up to about 1/2" of the floor not now covered with this product.

Problem may be the limited colors it is available in. Try the Dal-Tile or Florida Tile Brands first.
