Shower stall ceiling tile

Size:  25.2 KBHi...I'm tiling a shower stall using 8x12 tiles; I've finished the walls & now about to start on the ceiling. Problem is lining up the tiles on the ceiling vs the walls. The tiles are on the walls long way across.

Its a matter of math, it will work on one wall, but not on the other walls. At this point, determine what is most bearable for you and go with it. Once grouted, it will be a source of annoyment for you and probably nobody else. A lesson learned for next time.

You could use mosaic tile such as you used on the lower half so there would be no real mismatch.

Much more cutting and waste but you could use a diagonal pattern.

Thanks for the suggestions...someone also suggested using 12x12 tiles on the ceiling since it would line up on both sides.
