In this regard, does tile trim go on first?
First, decide if you will be installing tile trim to just the base of the wall or the corners as well. When installing trim to floor tiles, you'll want to ensure to place trim tiles on all your edges or to the edge where the tile meets another flooring material.
Additionally, how do you finish tile edges? Caulk the Edge To give the edge a clean, water-tight finish, place a piece of masking tape one grout joint away from the edge of the last tile. Fill this gap between the tile and the masking tape with a smooth bead of caulk. This will finish the edge without extra tiles.
Moreover, do tiles need trim?
If natural stone tiles are used, and cuts are neat, then there is no need to use a trim as the tile colour is the same all the way through. However, modern porcelain tiles with a digital printed surface, will be clay colour on exposed edges, therefore a plastic or metal trim should be used.
How do you finish tile edges with grout?
Install the trim last, after you have finished grouting your tiles. Prepare the grout according to the instructions on the package. Secure the trim pieces to your wall or counter with tile glue or grout. Fill the spaces between the tiles with more grout, then wipe the excess grout off with a damp sponge.
