How to finish installed glass/travertine tiles


I have a kitchen backsplash that is already grouted to the wall and looks unfinished. The tile layer finished the end of the tile with grout- but I don't like it. What is the best solution to get a more finished look??

I have been looking online at the Schluter options- but then the last row of 4x4 tiles have to be taken out, correct?

HELP!

What was the agreement on how it was supposed to be finished? If you use that type of edging, some tiles will have to be removed, yes. I'm trying to picture travertine and glass tiles together, having a problem picturing that look.

Yep, you're gonna have to rip them out if you want a Schluter trim to finish it off. That's not going to be fun to rip out if it's glued on well and I'm sure some of the dry wall will come out in the process. Only other thing I would suggest is you finish it off with a travertine border/trim on the edge But it might protrude past your counter-top. Good luck.
