Tile Trim Ideas to Enhance Your Home
Tile Trim is a popular choice among homeowners to help define spaces, accentuate areas with a defined border, create a smoother transition between rooms, and add finishing touches for a clean and polished look. While tile edging and trim are most commonly used in bathrooms, they can be used throughout the home for an added touch of style that helps differentiate one area from another or to help make an object or a space stand out.

Using tile trim to create borders in the bathroom can offer a cleaner and smoother transition from where the tile ends and the wall starts. Some great spaces where tile borders can be used in the bathroom include edging around the sink where the tile meets the wall for a smoother transition and to protect the wall from water, bordering shower shelves to highlight and accentuate those areas for a more distinct look, and highlighting a wall backsplash to accentuate the design. These are only a few of the many ways in which tile can be used as bathroom borders, but the options for adding trim are endless.
Backsplashes in kitchens are very popular for adding style and design to a space and for making clean up easier. Some locations for a backsplash include behind the stove, an accent linear backsplash along the walls, and as decorative backing for open kitchen cabinets. While backsplashes in kitchens look great, they can oftentimes have an awkward transition if not installed properly. Tile trim is a stylish and effective way to ensure a smooth and streamlined transition between a tiled backsplash and the rest of the wall.
Tile trim is another great way to add some decorative framing to accentuate glass, mirrors, fireplaces, or even exterior walls. To highlight a fireplace in a room, adding tile along the wall or as a frame around a fireplace really makes the space stand out as a focal point. Framing glass or mirrors with tile can also differentiate it from the surrounding wall and make it pop. More often than not in recent years, homeowners use tile for their outdoor patio or as an edging along the bottom third of the wall. Adding a slightly different design of tile to frame these walls help them to stand out and can accentuate the look of your home.
If you’ve ever walked into a home with no kitchen backsplashes, no tile framing or bathroom borders, but there was tile flooring, then there was definitely tile trim along the edges of that flooring. More likely than not, a home with tile flooring has tile trim along the edges. Tile trim can help differentiate different where one room ends and another starts. They can help add some depth between entryways and help to transition from tile in a hallway to tile in a bathroom or kitchen.
