Examples of ceramic tile edging trim include bullnose trim, rail molding, border tile and metal edging trim. Factors such as cost, design and the accent tiles in the pattern help to determine the appropriate edging.
Bullnose tile has a finished edge that curves back to the wall to complete the tile. Most lines include bullnose tiles. When using a line without the trim, the installer sometimes chooses a coordinating color. Rail molding is thicker than the wall tile, providing additional dimension to the project. Border tile is finished throughout the depth of the tile, making it possible to cut the tile and still have a finished edge. Metal edging is L-shaped and fits behind the tile, folding over the top to complete the look.
