Tiling around a bath


Postby toplondonchef » Mon Oct 18, 2010 2:58 pm

I'm planning on rennovating a bathroom and this will include removing tiles around the bath, replacing the bath with new and replacing the tiles

In terms of getting a good seal between the bath and the wall is it best to tile 1st, bringing tiles down say 100mm below the dge of the bath or fit bath 1st, then tile on to bath edge

Either way I will then fill the bath with water and then mastic to seal

Just wondered if there was a prefered method

I always put bath in first due to the walls not being square, then seal the gap with silicon, then tile then seal with silicon after tiles and grout are set, dont forget to put some water in the bath if its a plastic one before you do the final silicon seal.

Thanks Dan the man for your reply and advice

Will go ahead with the fit bath 1st and then tile method
