Hi All, my name is John and I'm new to the forum. I have been doing a bathroom remodel and had a question I was hoping someone could answer.
I am at the point where I am laying the tile on the cement backerboard. I measured the wall where the plumbing is located and realized that the pipes for the fixtures (bath spout, valve, shower head) are not centered.
Not a problem but it raises a question for me as to what to use as the centerpoint of the wall. Should I tile using the fixtures as the "center" of the wall or should I use the true center without regard to the fixtures? Is this a matter of preference?
If I use the fixtures as the centerpoint, should I tile the back wall to match the pattern or should I use the true center for that wall regardless of what I do in the front?
I dont see how it makes a difference. If you are just using smaller tiles like 3x6 subways or 4x4 you probably wont even ever notice. However if you are trying to do some really cool pattern you might notice if you dont use them as the center point. How off are they? I think the rule for if something looks out of wack is if it's more than a 1/4 inch.
