I have a small sun room that used to be a enclosed back porch. I'm using 16" tile. I happen to come across a great deal on this really nice border, hoping to be able to use. The border is about 1/8" thicker. Can you use different thickness and somehow level it out when applying the cement?

Use a larger notched trowel for the 16" tile and backbutter each piece in addition to spreading the floor with thinset. When you get to the area where the border will be go to a smaller notch.
