How to Finish Glass Tile Edges


Glass tile makes beautiful back splashes for kitchens and bathrooms. The advantage of glass tile over ceramic is that glass is colored throughout the tile. Ceramic is not. For this reason, finishing the edges of your glass tile backs plash is a low-effort task.

Things You'll Need

  • Grout or caulking
  • Cloth
  • Run grout or caulking along the unfinished edge of the back splash.

  • Smooth with a damp cloth, or your wet finger, depending upon the instructions on your grout or caulking.

  • Wipe away any excess from the wall or counter immediately, before it begins to dry.

Tips & Warnings

  • You may instead frame the back splash using painted or stained molding. Just match the molding depth to the depth of your tile to maintain height consistency.
  • Clean up any excess grout or caulking before it dries.
