    Is there any way to fit tile trim “retrospectively” to this corner (photo attached£ to tidy it up? I could remove the tiles and reattach them (with a piece of trim inserted) but I wondered if there was a short cut here?

    thank you

    Are you tiling around the corner?

    No. A kitchen wall cabinet will be going in there which will get very close up to the corner, so there’s no room for tiles any more.

    thank you.

    In fact...it might be helpful if I showed you the kitchen cabinet in situ:

    If you carefully rake out a little adhesive from rear of tiles and clean end of tiles you can cut most of the lip of tile trim off and tuck it behind with a little silicon to secure.

    Ah ok. Yes, I reckon I could manage that - sounds fairly straightforward. Thank you.
