Bathroom Crown Moulding and Shower Tile

I am installing crown moulding in my bathroom.

I have an open corner shower that is enclosed with 5' shower walls and 18" glass shower screens. The corner walls are tiled to the ceiling.

Since the shower is not enclosed, I have to decide whether to run the crown through the shower, or end it where the tile meets the drywall.

Does anybody have thoughts on this? If you've had the same issue how did you approach it?

A picture so we can see what your seeing would be a big help.
Sounds like more work then it's worth because there's no way to nail through the tile so you would have to install a glued on backer strip to attach it.

Re: Bathroom Crown Moulding and Shower Tile

I recently went with a 3 piece crown in a bathroom. That meant gluing one piece on the tile and then nailing the actual crown to that and the strip acting as a cornice. I can't remember what construction adhesive I used, PL 5 something, but it took forever to cure. I'd use something that cures a bit quicker if I ever did this again. Just make sure when you nail the crown up, you change your nails. I used 5/8" on the part with tile behind it, and I usually have 1.5" nails.

Here is the crown pattern I used. I'd recommend taking a few minutes to think through the paint. If not possible to spot paint, it is best, IMO, to hang the raw material and then prime over all 3 pieces. It makes it look as one solid piece. Much more work, but a product which has a much richer look.
