FAULT IN TRIM!
As it's a brushed trim you could try rubbing it with a scotch brite pad. Try on an off cut to see how it finishes.
Also, it's not exactly covering the edge there is it?
Get it out (carefully) and replace with one 2mm deeper!
Take the protective plastic film off.........
Thank you for your suggestion jobdone, will try.
It is off.
How would you get it out without damaging the marble tiles?
Is that stone tiles?
Natural Stone Marble
Why use trim on Natural Stone?
I only use trim on ceramic/porcelain and the customer doesn’t want to pay to mitre them.
Thank you "Kieks" for answering "timeless John's" question on my behalf, are there any other constructive suggestions about possible repair options ( eg. heard of brushed anodising as a possibility?) Or an easy way or tool for removal of trim without causing damage?
Why have you edged with a trim?!?
You could have butt-fit them and polished the edge by hand and it would have looked a million times better than that.
Sorry if it sounds rude but come on; the trim doesn't even fit.
Are you diy or paid?
Now you only have two options IMO- remove the trim, persuading it out with a hammer and trowel edge inserted in the space between.
Or re-do the whole edge again, without trim preferably.
Any attempts to polish the fault out are a wast of time and that time would be better spent re-doing the entire edge in my view.
How tight is the trim up to the tile? Is it butted tight? It’s hard to see on my phone. If the was a grout join I’d be tempted to run a grinder with a metal blade up a little then try and get the backing out after by easing it out.
Although it’d be risky!
