|CROWN| in the shower?

15 Mar

My initial thought on this was hell no.  But I think I may want to continue the crown into the shower area.  There are a couple of options.

Leave a few inches between tile and crown painted the same color as the rest of the bathroom walls (as shown below).  I’m not really finding any good examples of this photo wise, but apparently it’s done.

OR Tile all the wall up to the ceiling and crown right over it, I’ll have to do a bit of a funky transition where the tile ends since its in the middle of a wall.   I’m thinking that’s a transition I want to avoid visually, and also physically and mentally.

The Plan

    can you tile right up to the ceiling and not put any moulding there? Then run the crown from the rest of the room up to the tile.

      Yeah. That was the original plan, but there is this 1 ft wall that I did a little return in the crown where wall turns into shower and it just looked odd. Oh. I remember now. Because i did a wood ceiling, the crown ended in a seam there and it looked terrible.

      I’m tiling today and have decided to go right up to the ceiling. I’m just going to see how it looks and decide after. Most likely I will go with your suggestion.

      Wish you were here! I could use your expertise.

        I wanna see how it looks when you’re finished tiling. Maybe I can give you a tip on how to finish the trim where it meets the tile. I wish I could be there too! I’d work trade for good food and free drinks. 🙂

    oh, if you didn’t know already, it’s a good idea to tape off the ceiling before you tile and grout so you don’t get any on the fresh painted wood. Then, when you peel off the tape your grout lines look good.
