Steam Shower ceiling with big porcelain tiles. Tiling your shower ceiling here's how. Many people are afraid that when they install tile on a ceiling, it is difficult to get it to stay up and it will fall as soon as you stick it to the ceiling, especially large tiles. That is actually not the case, even for large format tiles, the thinset mortar will hold the tile to the ceiling quite easily, however you do have to know a few things to avoid having the tile fall. In this video I explain how to install a large porcelain tile on a shower ceiling without having one fall on my head and ruin my day, really not that hard as long as you use a good quality thinset mortar mixed to the proper consistency and applied correctly to achieve proper thinset coverage between the tile and the ceiling surface. I also give a few tips on how to avoid having the mortar fall on your face as you install the tile. These days most tiles are large format, and the same tile that is installed on the walls, will usually be installed on the ceiling. In this video show how to use a lightweight mortar to achieve a very strong bond to the ceiling. I also use a leveling system to get a lippage free installation.
