Welcome to the forum Mike. Nothing at all wrong with wiring inside a shower wall. Supposed to be waterproof so the wire doesn’t care.
100% agree with the other Mike’s post.

100% agree with the heat shrink tubing. I’d go further. Solder the wires at the splice and slick a sliver of hot melt glue in the heat shrink tubing. When you heat the tubing (hot air gun, hair...

If it’s too late to flatten the wall a bit; you’ll be surprised how much the trim will flex. Make sure you hit the studs with the trim nails. Filling the gap that much will not pleasing at all. ...

I did pretty much exactly that. Started at the bottom accent row and made sure it was level with both a bubble level and laser level. Once that was set, built up from there on all three walls and...

Welcome Tyler. I think you’d be fine just up to the level of the cabinets. You could do a contrasting paint or other feature on the other upper and sliver areas of the wall. Could also use a filler...

Do you have storage space planned? Everyone’s different, but I planned 2 large vanity cabinets, 2 sets of double recessed mirrors cabinets, and 5’ wide closet. My crap takes up a few shelves. My...

I’ll join the pile. Had much the same issue.

I’d go for an epoxy there. Something like Latapoxy or one of the PC series. It’s not in an area that’s going to see much abuse. Thinset mortars don’t hold too well to the glazed tile surface.

My answer is based on reading this 120x20 cm, not mm. If mm, you’re talking about a 5”x1” range tile. I’ve not seen that in a wood look.
Use the Deflecto calculator in the blue band at the top of...

You’ll have mortar between the OSB and the Ditra, and again between the Ditra and the tile. You might be better off using the non-XL Ditra. You can always use a thicker layer of mortar (still thin,...

Maybe I’m just being picky here, but I’m thinking that 1/2 to 5/8“ of transition over a short distance of 1/2” or less is going to be a trip hazard or a toe stub risk. There’s probably some safety...

It’s what, maybe 70 inside, 45 outside? 25 degrees isn’t much of a thermal shock. The water in your wet saw tray is probably 40 degrees anyway. Go out and give it a cut. If you’re worried, warm...

Welcome Casey.
I’ve never been a fan of the “stay put by the paper tape” corner beads. In some areas they’re fine, but for me, in an area like that, where it’s subject to all sorts of bumping; I’d...

Hi Ken. I used something very similar on an accent wall in the bedroom. Looks very nice.
That being said, I’d never go with it in a kitchen, especially as a backsplash. By its very nature,...

The diverter won’t see that much of a direct stream of water. When you tile over it, just leave a much smaller gap (like a 1/16 or 1/8”). All the escutcheon plates I’ve seen have a gasket that sits...
