Need help finishing backsplash

dinab101February 18, 2013
My tile guy put up the mosaic tile backsplash today in my bathroom. I didn't realize that it would look this unfinished. Do you have ideas on how it can look finished?

stainless steel edge trim might help, but it should have been put in when the tiles were installed.
You might be able to trim the edging and slip it in behind.
good luck

go with a ceramic quarter round to pick up a color in the splash ledge.....put on the top and the down turn edge at the end.......seal with a bead of good silicon sealant at the wall edge..........bang. done.

Can you place a large mirror on the wall? A plain rectangular mirror could sit right down on the back splash or one with a lovely frame would distract the eye.

Definitely need a mirror, but also a trim of some kind as everyone has mentioned to make it seem finished. You can easily do that part yourself if you wanted to by just getting a piece from a hardware store.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I already have the mirrors purchased. There will be at least a two inch space between where tile ends and the mirror. Also I have two separate mirrors, one over each sink. My contractor suggested just painting the grout at the edge the same color as the wall. Will this look ok?

There is probably a coordinating bullnose that you can put on the top edge to finish it off.

This is what it looks like with the mirrors up.

Maybe a stained piece of wood trim to match your cabinet color would fill up the space between the tile and the mirrors. Quick and easy. Polyurethane a few coats so it is sealed.

I would choose a color from the tile, not the grout for the wall.

A piece of quarter round wood molding painted the same color as the wall, cut to fit, should work fine.

I like Nadia's idea. Tile from wall to wall and to the ceiling.

Please, stain wood from the 70's. No, the glass mosaic tile has a wonderful trim glass, maybe in the brown color, this is the only answer for wonderful.

p.s. Since I just noticed the trim and subway tile, its white, so don't worry about the height difference,
the Brown Glass Trim will be the center of attention, you will be happy.
