Tileing half a wall

Recommended Posts

Sorry this may be an easy answer but I am unable to find it the search or knowledge base. 

 

I have a bathroom wall that has a tub surround and I would like to tile only half of the wall. Is there a tool that I can use to create a section?

 

i have tried the polyine solid, polyline box etc, as seen in the picture here with the arrow, but when i go to place the material, the whole wall is tiled. 

 

The wall also pictured is what I want to put tile on half of. From the right of the window to the left, under the window i only want to tile. 

any help would be great

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

If you want to place the tile on just one side or face of the polyline solid, use a reshaped soffit to carry the tile material and place it on the surface you wish to see. This should work, no matter what software or version you have.

In adding to this question, if I have a full wall of tile, how do remove that tile and set it back to a wall of drywall? i can't seem to find how to do that. 

I can remove it from the soffit as I can double click and set the material to drywall where the tile is, but on the exterior wall (as pictured) I can't do that.

You can also paint the wall with drywall.

 

It's usually good to use a Custom Backsplash where you want tile too.

thanks, but if I paint the wall with drywall, it just changes the colour of the tile texture, so was loking to get back to the original drywall. I'll try your first remark
