why cut a wall this way??


In our downstairs bathroom the original owners painted the ceiling white and the walls a off green. Whoever painted it brought the white ceiling color down into the green about a 1/4" all the way around. Anyone see this before? It really doesn't look bad just curious if this is done much.

It's a "thing" that you'll find in some professionals
Though I think 1/4" would be a lot
I know of some guys that do about 1/8"


It's not all that common, no

I bring the ceiling color down about 1/8" into the wall. While it's a pain, you can cover up inconsistencies in the corners where the wall and ceiling meet.
