Silicone related questions (redid tile)


First time redoing the tile in my bathroom. Finished it and for the most part I think it turned out great.

I'm at the siliconing stage and I have two aluminum trim pieces that cover the edge of the tiles where they meet the wall. Should I put silicone on the outside edge of the aluminum trim? Here's a link to a picture I took of the tiles I did.

There is a slight slight gap and I just thought might as well fill it for aesthetics, but you never know what's right or wrong!

Thank you!

If the gap is between the aluminum and the wall, don't use silicon. Use a paintable caulk.
