i know how to do a three way mitre with the standard quarter round plastic or metal trim. Been there done that.

I am tiling my kitchen splashback, and am taken with the flat metal trim. Looks very neat with the tiles we've chosen.

However, i need to do two threeway mitres as the splashback returns around two external corners.

how do you / is it possible, to do a threeway mitre with this stuff, or do i need to resort to the quarter round stuff?

can i do a flat trim along the top, with a quarter round on the external corner, or will this look cr*p?

When you say a three way mitre Im assuming it will be along the top of the tiles then round a corner(into a window recess?) then a piece going straight down at the corner.

If this is the type of situation you mean I normally mitre the two top pieces for the 90 corner then butt a straight cut up at the bottom to run down the external edge.
