Glazed edge tile trim

If you want a look that’s eclectic, modern, contemporary, and transitional, then a glazed edge tile trim may be the best option. This trim choice works with so many styles and can look great whether long or short, and whether on both sides or just one side of your tile. If you’re using glazed edged tile, then you may want mitered edges to create your corners.

Bull-nosed trim

If you have a home that has a craftsman style then bull-nosed trim may be the best choice. It’s also a good choice for eclectic, traditional, and transitional styles. Bull-nosed trim tiles are pieces with the edge curving into the wall. They can be bull-nosed on the short or long side of the tile, depending on what you like. This a great choice for a place with a lot of exposed edge, such as backsplashes, but you want the project to finish clean. They’re also popular to use with bathroom tiles.

Flatliner and liner trim

These trim pieces are great with almost any style, including craftsman, eclectic, transitional, traditional, and even Victorian. Flatliner and liner trim is perfect for finishing off a specialty pattern or shape, or for framing a particular focal point you’ve created out of tile. There are many types of liners, including round liners. There are also what’s known as quarter rounds, which are used to turn a corner. They can also be used with beak trim pieces if you want a unique corner.

Architectural molding trim

If you want your home to maintain its architectural integrity then architectural molding trim may be a great choice. You can find it in a wide range of styles including craftsman, Victorian, traditional, and transitional.
