UGH! Schluter Jolly Metal Is 8 Ft. My Walls Are 8 Ft. 1 1/2 Inches


small fill in cut, top or bottom of the corner. I was thinking at the top. Seems out of eye sight. I have 5 corners like this.

here's a similar pic
You know for all the tiling I've done, I've never run into this issue where the run was longer than 8 feet on a vertical run. Since its that tiny of a remnant. A 1 1/2 inch cut to fill in

Jolly is 8' 2-1/2" long, not 8'

You'll need to cut off an inch to get it to fit.

Assuming it's too short regardless of the actual measurements, I'd do the splice at the bottom. People look down much more than up.

If I have to seam the metal I place it at the lowest grout line. Done properly the seams will be invisible from normal viewing positions.

I find the opposite, most never look up. I swear I could get away with no ceilings sometimes. Most look down more often when walking or just standing around.

The room is normally darker lower down with more shadows.

That's what I said. But that actually argues for doing the splice up high where that spider guy is clutching the ceiling before pouncing on you.

Good point about the lighting down low, though.

Higher it is closer to most lines of sight. Low the angle changes and is farther from most lines of sight.

Anyone ever set the metal on the wall before starting to tile the wall. I do this a lot when i do shampoo niche's. Frame it and tape it to the wall.

You shouldn't need a seam.

Yeah, most people's eyes are closer to the ceiling than the floor.

Well it has to be on the surface before you tile, sometimes I level it and hot glue it. I'd piece it in at the bottom.

I like to do at least an 8" piece instead of an 1 1/2" tiny pieces never look right IMO.
