Gap between floor tile and wall tile


Got a problem that I would like some advice on. Whoever installed the tiles on the wall of our bathroom left too big of a gap between the bottom tile and the floor tiles, I would estimate 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch of a gap.

It really looks bad as there is visible grout in this gap that is very uneven and is cracking in some places, I tried to caulk over this, but since it is so wide it doesn't look very good, and dirt sticks to the caulk making it look worse.

Any suggestions?

Could you post a few pix (not closeups) of the gap> It would help us to see what you see. Large grout lines aren't the answer, and caulking over cracked grout isn't better. We'll wait.
