3. For tiles that will be trim pieces around the edges of the ceiling, the tiles may need to be cut. Measure the dimensions where the trim tiles will be placed and mark a tin tile for those dimensions.


 4. Cut trim tiles with a circular saw for the dimensions marked out. Use a non-carbide plywood blade (7-1/4" 150 tooth recommended).


5. Place trim tiles into the edge grids.
