My clients are clamoring for a more modern style in their bathrooms. One of my favorite ways to get the look? Large tiles! There are some beautiful options on the market from 12″-24″. Many of the manufacturers don’t have a modern edge trim, however, that makes sense with their larger-than-life tile. Hmmmm.
A simple and often affordable answer is metal-edge trim. Several brands make them, but my favorite are the edge-protection profiles made by Schluter. Instead of hunting for a bullnose tile to finish the edges, why not check out a metal trim?
A brushed-chrome finish holds up the best with wear, even if your plumbing fixtures are also polished chrome (don’t worry about being too matchy-matchy). There are tons of options, though, including color-coated aluminum, that could coordinate with many tiles.Browse before and after pictures of this major master bath makeover
This is a great way to use a tile as your backsplash on your vanity, as well. The metal trim makes for a really smooth, beautiful edge that’s super-easy to keep clean.
