If the caulk fails, you'll probably never know it and water will rot out your new wall.

The 'code', common practice is/was to tile up at least 72" above the floor. Going to the ceiling makes lots of sense, but sometimes looks awkward if there's no soffit above the tub. It's a matter of your taste.

In the old days where most tiles used were 4.25", we went 13 rows up, 55.25" + 2" for the bullnose which totaled about 57.5" +-. the tub is 14-15" and there you go.. roughly 72".

I didn't drop my ceiling and I have tiles going up to a 9' ceiling.
Have no idea how I will clean them.
It does look a bit odd as you mention.

Re: Shower tiles?


I like L curtain rod. You can even make one with 3/4" copper and the wall flange and it will be strong enough to delete the ceiling hanger. Bend the outside radius and make it 3" outside the tub and the curtains will not stick to you. Flange must have a 2x nailer and use #12 or better stainless screws. There are extra length curtains also so you don't have to use 2.

Re: Shower tiles?


I will post more pictures when further along. I am going with a back wall because I want a curved curtain rod. It seem to make shower room so much wider
