Hi guys,

I'm after some advice please.

I am about to buy all the gear i will need to tile a kitchen wall, but getting a little stuck on what im going to do with a lip in the wall where an old coal stove used to be.

the lip is proud from the wall approx. 15-20mm.

Is there an aluminium trim i could use to make the lip into some kind of small splash back?

I've drawn a simple diagram for you to get an idea.... (left - Side profile. Right - front profile)

Many thanks.profile.jpg

Can you not remove the lip?

I haven't seen tile trim that is big enough to cover something that size.
If you can find a local metal stockholder, they might have Aluminium angle in the size you need.
