  1. You can narrow down your options by choosing a style
  2. One of the biggest challenges when shopping for tile is narrowing down the options. With hundreds and even thousands of options, how can you easily find the trim that works for you? We advise that your first step should be to choose a style. That way, you can keep your search to that particular style, which narrows down your options.

    The style could be very specific, such as blue and gold mascarpone, or it can be more general, such as modern. The key is to have a very basic idea in mind of what you are looking for and to then narrow down your options based on that idea.

  3. You must consider what will work best for you
  4. There are so many tile trim options out there and you may end up falling in love with one, only to realize that it doesn’t actually work for you. This is why we recommend thinking about what you are really looking for in a tile trim first, and then looking for the right trim. Write down your general budget, your needs, and your wants. Once you are armed with this specific information, it will be much easier to find what you need.

  5. Trim isn’t your only option
  6. You cannot be fully versed on tile trim without understanding that it is just one of your options. There are many textural elements that can be incorporated into a tile wall or floor. At Mission West Kitchen and Bath we can help not only with remodeling products but with design assistance too. Feel free to call us if you are interested in learning about alternatives to tile trim.

  7. You can incorporate other elements of the room
  8. One of the most interesting non-tile tile trim options is architectural molding. Do you have crown molding somewhere else in the room? Why not tie it in to the tile by using it as tile trim? This will not work in all cases but it can actually help save money as well as provide a uniform look for a room.

  9. Consider your corners
  10. If you are only using tile for a backsplash then you likely don’t have a corner to deal with. However, if you are using it on a floor or a different surface, then you will need to take special care to ensure that you’re choosing a tile that works on corners.
