Do I Need Metal or Plastic Tile Trim?
Tile trim can be used for many different things. Not only is it perfect for sealing and protecting your new tiling, it can also be used to frame window sills, box in plumbing or create a smooth transition between types of flooring. For this reason, we offer a wide range of tile trims to suit your needs.
There are two main types of tile trim available. When it comes to performance, both metal and plastic will do a great job of protecting and finishing your tiling. The main differences between the two are purely appearance and durability in different environments.
Plastic Tile Trim is one of our most popular products, and for very good reason. It’s a durable, versatile product that’s great value. Plastic is easy to cut to sizes and flexible enough to install in any space. With plastic, you have a range of colour options for your tile trim, ensuring a clean finish that suits your tile perfectly. For domestic bathrooms and kitchens, a plastic tile trim is an easy to clean option that’s budget-friendly.
Metal tile trim offers a high quality finish that is unmatchable in durability. For high traffic areas, or locations that will come into contact with chemicals, it’s best to use a metal trim that won’t wear or corrode easily. Though many think that metal trims can be limiting when it comes to design, we offer a wide variety of finishes, colours and materials that will match any room. By using metal, it’s possible to coordinate with fixtures and fittings to create a cohesive, slick look.
Tile trims are not only to cover the unfinished edges of your tiling project. They help protect your tiles from chips and water damage, as well as masking tile imperfections and uneven surfaces. What’s more, with the right colour of tile trim, you can add the perfect finishing touch to your project.
