However, there are some benefits to using edge trim with peel and stick tiles. Trim provides an extra layer of protection against moisture infiltration into any small gaps over time. It also helps conceal any slight unevenness that may develop along tile edges as the adhesive ages.

Aesthetically, trim can make peel and stick tile backsplashes appear more professionally finished compared to raw edges. And it allows for an easy solution if you ever need to replace just one damaged tile in the future.

How Do You Install the Edge Trim?

Installing edge trim is a relatively straightforward process, but it does require attention to detail to ensure a neat and secure finish. Here is the detailed guide. But, before placing your first piece of tile trim, some light surface prep work ensures a clean base for successful adhesion. With surfaces prepped and a spirit of patience and focus, you’re ready for precise tile trim placement.

Do I Need to Clean And Prepare the Wall Surface First?

Proper surface preparation is one of the most important steps before installing any new tile or edge trim. It ensures optimal adhesion and longevity of the installation. Before applying your new tile trim, the wall surfaces must be cleaned thoroughly. Use a degreasing cleaner to remove any dirt, dust, grease, or old adhesive residue that may be present on the walls.

This will help the new adhesive bond successfully. It is also important to check for any dents, bumps, or imperfections in the wall. These need to be sanded smooth so the tile trim sets level. On very dirty or Textured walls, light sanding with fine-grit sandpaper may also be necessary for the self-adhesive trim tiles to properly grab onto the surface. Taking these simple preparation steps at the outset leads to flawless results down the road.

What's the Best Way to Apply the Trim?

The best process for attaching tile trim involves multiple steps for a strong, long-lasting installation:

  1. First of all, cut trim pieces to size using a Jigsaw as needed.
  2. You don’t need to apply a thin layer of construction adhesive to the back of each trim piece because these are already self-adhesive. So, simply press trim firmly onto the wall, ensuring full contact with the wall.
  3. Inspect the installation and make any final adjustments.
  4. At last, apply firm pressure along the entire length of the trim to secure it to the wall. Your trim installation is now complete, giving your space a fresh, polished look.
