Have you found yourself endlessly looking for tile trim, going around in circles, and not knowing how to choose the best product for your job or project? Look no further, this guide to choosing tile trim will help you in selecting the right product at the right price for the job at hand. Adding those sophisticated finishing touches to a bathroom, wetroom, kitchen or even outdoor area is important, and having the correct tile trim can make all the difference to your completed project. Tiling is all about fine detail so you’ll want to ensure you are choosing the right tile trim to finish off your work to the highest standard. Tile trim helps provide the perfect finish to your tiling job, not only for the aesthetic but also for the protection of the tiles to prevent damage. Below we’ll highlight what you’ll need to consider when choosing your tile trim.
Choose Your Material
Firstly, you’ll need to choose the most suitable material for the job. One thing to consider when choosing your trim is the location you are tiling, as different areas will require different trims. For example, Stainless Steel is suitable for areas such as commercial kitchens, hospitals and external areas as these profiles offer resistance to principal chemical and atmospheric agents.
Metal trims are the most common type of trim for spaces that need a sleek, stylish finish. At Premium Tile Trim our selection of metal tile trims come in a wide range of profiles, colours and finishes. From brushed chrome to bright copper or matt black to beige, you’ll be sure to find your perfect match no matter the job.
Alternatively, Plastic Tile Trim is the perfect way to neatly complete a tiling job by covering unfinished edges and sealing the tiling from water damage. Plastic tile trims offer a wealth of colour options, so you will always be able to find something to match your colour scheme.
Choose Your Price Point
Trims can vary a lot when it comes to price, which is something to keep in mind when selecting the finish most appropriate for your job. Varying from the most economical White Plastic Trim, to the most luxurious Antique Brass Tile Trim or the plush Swarovski Crystal Chrome Tile Trim. If you are tiling a large area this can seriously impact your overall costs, so should be taken into account when selecting and budgeting for a project.

Choose Your Colour and Finish
When considering which tile trim to buy, you should consider the project's overall aesthetics and whether you want your trim to directly match the tiles exactly or whether you want a complimentary colour instead. The colour of your trim will make a big difference to the look of a finished job, and is something that can completely transform a room when paired with matching fixtures and fittings like taps or lighting.
