Using Tile Trim for Ceramic Tile Corner Is the Most Practical Choice!
In places like kitchen and bathroom, many people will choose to install tiles for the whole wall. How about the choice for handling external corner? Making tiles as a corner or using tile trims?
Let me check the solution which makes the tiles as a corner at first. Making the tiles as a corner is to use the tiles to close up the corner. Workers make a chamfer usually 45 degree at the back of corner of the two tiles. In this way the split joint between the two tiles will not have a large gap. It is smooth in the external corner.
This treatment is more practical. It not only protects the external corner, but also avoids any danger of knocking against the sharp tiles corner. In appearance, as it uses the original tiles for installation so the color is the same.
But the problem is that this work is a careful one and it requires high craftsmanship. While cutting the chamfer, it is hard to estimate the space to reserve. It may occur that each tile has different thickness while making tiles corner. Once the tiles are not handled well, it will increase the loss of tiles. And it is very easy to split by clashing on it. A split tile will be no good looking and also it is difficult to fix. Some craftsmen are unwilling to do projects like this. If you really want, you have to pay more money.
As for tile trims. it is more convenient to use for handling tile corners. What one needs to do is only to buy it and install. The installation is rather simple. It is easy to replace if the tile trim is destroyed by careless collision.
The main reason why some people do not like using tile trims is that the tile trim is made of other material and looks not unified with the tiles. Furthermore, if you want good effects for the tile trim you may need to buy high quality tile trims. But of course high quality tile trims are higher in price.
Generally, most people prefer to use tile trims for the tile corner guard. Even though the tile trims have some influence on the outlook, there are so many varieties for choice in the market that you are sure to find the one that meets your satisfaction.
