Trim Tile Different Thickness Than Field Tile

The title says it all. Is this kind of install a problem for a professional? The field tile are 18x18. The trim tile is standard Lowe's 2x10 surface bullnose.

You can backbutter the trim tiles, skimcoat the wall where the trims go, install a strip of Ditra, or delaminate a piece of Hardibacker and install that where the trims go.

you cant be talking a difference of an 1/8" or so ?

you can easily build this up with thinset and using spacers to hold the trim in place from sliding.
