    Hi there, i'm doing a bit of temporary work in my kitchen, which has chrome tile trims on some of the tiles (see a similar image attached - not mine).

    [​IMG]

    Basically, i'm looking for some kind of tile trim cover, or tile trim that would fit over this curved tile trim. Does such a thing exist? I can't take the existing one out without nackering the tiles, which i'm not ready to do at the moment.

    Thanks

    Can't you use an oscillating saw to remove the old trim, will be very slow though.

    I am not aware of any other trim that can be used to cover the existing one.

    yeah it can be cut away easy but riskin damage tothe backing material , possibly loosen some grout an worse possibly chip or loosen the tile esp. when you tried to pull the tile trim out - remember its stuck to the backin an the tile
