Hi Gary
Just like to say hello to every one as i'm new to the forum.
Regarding your question about tiling you can either grout it up or put some tile trim to the top to try and loose the gap thats all you can do really hope that helps , i would suggest you next time you tile you should check the cieling levels don't assume there level .
So start from your heighest point and cut the tiles to suit the cieling line.
