Glass tile backsplash trim

eeecarusFebruary 7, 2013


I plan to install backsplash in my new kitchen myself this or the next weekend! The tile I chose is a glass mosaic tile with marble stone.
I'm looking for ideas on how to finish the boundaries of the tile. There's going to be a gap between the top cabinets and my backsplash because it's too small of a strip to install, and I don't have a wet-saw to cut the glass tile horizontally in half.
I'm thinking of installing a stainless steel trim to cover this both on top and bottom of the backsplash... but don't know if such thing even exists...
Any ideas guys?

I used Shluter Systems edging it comes in different finishes and style. You can get it at tile stores and some big box stores . If I recall correctly it was 10 ft long. It can be cut.Here' how it looks in stainless on the vertical edge of my mosaic backsplash. You could run it horizontal too.

We just purchased the Schluter jolly edge in Blanco for our tile. It was $12.xx at a flooring store. They did have to order our color.
