Alsa Corp makes FX Sheeting in different styles, one I used that looks like Burl wood. I cut it in strips and used it to replace a lot of the old plastic woodgrain trim that was getting brittle. You buy it by the linear foot so it's good to get at lleast 4' so you have long strips to cut and work with. You can see the band around edge in lower right corner

Trim

MonaxLisa
Just to be clear, I did not use the 12"x12" vinyl tile. I used vinyl flooring (ie: like linoleum). It is sold in 12' wide rolls. Since it is sold from a roll 12' wide and I did not want any seams in on the floor I had a considerable amount of left over. Which is what I used to do the trim. It does not have any joints, I cut it 1 1/16" wide and then cut it to the length I needed for each aluminum channel. Hope this makes sense.

Please be aware, that a one piece floor covering, will crack sideways at every 4 feet, because of the movement of the floor where it joins together.

That's why floor tiles are used and seamed at every 4 feet.

One piece cracking

I used the type of vinyl floor covering that is not glued down, therefore the floor can float under it without causing any problem. I only used it in the bath and I don't have much more than four square feet let alone 4 linear feet. I agree with Andy, don't use the type that is glued down.

I have been unable to find a source for insert nosing of any kind. Where can you get it?

Shower pan material

I too had the same issue and didn't want to order the material.All the trim in the living area was also damaged. I purchased about one foot of sheet shower pan material(the grey stuff) from Lowes. Spray painted with epoxie paint to match and replaced all of it. This gives you six foot joints. Not exactly what I want but cheap.
