 o
Bullnose tiles or trim for finished edge to backsplash

Not sure if this is a dumb question or a common situation.
For a finished look to a backsplash using handmade 3x6 subway tile, do you finish the top and side edges with bullnose tiles or a matching trim/molding tile?
To be more concise: there are two areas where the tile meets the wall and needs a finished look.
Thanks so much for your advice!

Can they make you matching pencil tile?

When tile has no trims available, it can be mitered to return to the wall to provide a more finished look.

We used bullnose. I really wanted to do custom pencil liner but when we got the quote from our tile place, it blew the budget completely. I thought I would hate it because it didn't match my inspiration backsplash, but honestly it looks complete and I rarely think about it these days. I think either works fine; just depends on your budget and your options.
