When you are installing tile in your shower, over your sink, or above the counter in your kitchen, making use of trim tile can help to add that extra detail which can make your tile design pop out. What is fun is that there is more than one tile trim idea that gives you a lot of avenues to explore.

Patterned Tile

When the rest of the tiles are plain, it's nice to add a bit of contrast with your tile trim. One way to do this is using patterned tiles. When you have plain white tiles, adding a row of tiles with flowers, designs, texture or some pattern can add style--just as adding stencilling or a printed border along the top of a plain-coloured wall. Another design example is the Persian rug where the rug has a specific design in the middle with a patterned border around the outside act as a frame and tying the entire design together.

Profile Trim Tile

Having tile trim that has a profile, or a three-dimensional shape similar to moulding found in finish carpentry or the frame around a picture, gives the rest of the tiles a finished look. Examples of these tiles can be found at New England Art Tiles and the Linda Paul Studio.

Handpainted Trim Tile

A way to create a personal as well as decorative touch is to create your own trim tiles. This is something in which the entire family can take part. Not only will you end up with something beautiful, but you will create a tile trim that have meaning to you and your family. By using enamel paint, you can create tiles that can last, even when exposed to water. Or, if you prefer, you can create your own trim tiles from scratch by mixing and firing your own clay.
