ehhh.... I hate to think of that. And, the floor slopes to the hallway, so I'd prefer not to "raise" that end of the room.

You could still cut the tiles to fit the slope area but it may be noticable.

Will this be an open area or will a vanity, cabinet or toilet be in this area?
No... I didn't realize the floor wasn't level. Although it's a small bathroom, it does run the entire legnth of the room (about 10 feet). The only fixture on that side is the stool, and it's on the "good" end.

I created a bad situation.

That's just what I'm wondering. I've never seen a installaton like that before. I'm wondering about all the issues you've raised. I fear too that it will just plain look goofy.

Duh! Great idea. And... that's my "day job." I'm a photographer. I'll post a photo in a day or so.

Another great idea. That sounds possible. The wall tiles are 6 1/2", but I have matching 13" on the floor. I do have a consumer grade wet saw. Now... to get them off with the least amount of damage.

I suppose I should stick to photography.

Thanks!

Take a picture and 'photoshop' the floor level.

Now THAT I can do. And thanks for the PM. I'm too new here to reply in a PM.

So.... removing the bottom course of tiles... how do I proceed?

Thanks!
Pete
