take them to a stone fabricator as he/she will have the necessary tools to put a bevel on porcelain tile. if u want to do yourself purchase a variable speed grinder (u can work slowly with one), and a set of polishing pads for stone with a rigid backer. utilize utube for making bevels. utilize the techniques u feel comfortable with. myself, i start with the 50 grit polishing pad and keep it at an angle on the tile. cut the bevel to the depth u desire with the 50 grit pad. finish off with the rest of the pads always keeping the pads in contact with the tile so as not to make ripples. use constant pressure. not too firm, not too soft. try a practice piece first.

When I have need to take the sharp edge off of a porcelain tile cut, I hold the tile at 45 degrees to the wet saw table and run the top of the cut edge along the side of the saw blade. This takes the sharp edge off nicely.
