    Hi

    I am finishing off a bathroom that has a large walk in shower.
    Can I use coving in the bathroom. This would go around the ceiling where the shower is as well.

    The room is 2.8m X 2m with a large extractor unit dedicated to this room size.

    If it is ok is there anything particular I need?
    Many thanks......Voodoochile

    voodo - go for it but avoid that cheap expanded polystyrene stuff 'cos it looks naff. Avoid the large sizes in such a small room, maybe going for 90mm quadrant coving. Use either a plaster type or a high-density plastic. Support the cove whilst fixing with adhesive ... drive a couple of temp nails into wall & ceiling either side of cove to hold (leaving 1/2 to 2/3 of nail sticking out to aid removal). Fill nail holes, then decorate.

    I agree about not touching the polystyrene stuff but coving is really considered naff now & only marginally more fashionable than Artex; everyone is going to a lot of expense to rip the stuff out! :D Unless you really need it to hide some problems forget it; square edges & flat ceilings is best. ;)
