    Hello

    I am looking at the possibility of mitring a L cut on metro tiles around a window reveal rather than using trim.

    Is this achievable? Any pics?

    Many thanks

    Thank you local tiler. Torn whether I like it or not especially because of the bevel

    the problem with metro mitre - in my opinion - is that they leave too sharp an edge.

    Good call Tom. My search for a suitable trim for a teal metro tile will commence

    I’d do a dummy run including the L cut. Even grout it up to see what you have.

    If you have a dark biscuit then it would be a bit of a tough job IMO. I might be wrong though, you might get a flawless finish.
