Tile as High as You'd Like
When tiling your bathroom walls, you have a few options. Since tile helps seal out water from the porous walls, you may want to tile all the way up your bathroom walls, creating a floor-to-ceiling tiled wall. This style creates a spa-like effect and is cleaned quickly. Another option is wainscoting with tile; wainscoting allows you to create a 3- to 4-foot border around the bottom section of your walls and is a more inexpensive option.
Six Feet for Shower Surrounds
The construction websites Hometime and Excel Builders suggest tiling about 42 inches above stand-alone tub decks and 6 feet above the tub deck for shower enclosures. This protects the bathroom walls from moisture and creates a cohesive look.
Install tiles on your bathroom walls in any style befitting the room; choose from floor to ceiling, wainscoting or anything in between. Consider tiling at least 6 feet above the tub deck when tiling around a bathtub and shower enclosure.
