Hi guys

Can i tile my floor first, than lay toilet and sink pedestal on grip fill bed?

Or shall i fit toilet and sink first then make tricky cuts to tile around?

tile the floor first, then fit toilet and pedestal on top, it'll look much neater and save a bucket load of fiddling about.

or a shed load of hassle when a tile breaks and you want to replace it.

Tile round the loo - it's not difficult and the loo should be screwed to the floor NOT put down with gripfill.
