First a technical question -
I've read everything on this forum about tiling onto plasterboard, and have I understood it correctly in thinking that it's ok to tile straight on to 'raw' plasterboard ? (Using the appropriate adhesive). There's mention of using PVA and latex primer, but those suggestions do not sound as if they come from those who really know what they are doing. I've just 'built' the room and bought (really expensive) honed & filled travertine tiles so want to get it right.
Secondly a styling question -
I've got 600 x 400 tiles but I am in 2 minds how to deal with external corners. Do I use the corner beads, or simply have a tile edge showing ? Because the tiles are large, the edges will be regular and neat, but would they look better with a proprietary edging? I'm keen to know what a 'pro' would recommend, especially as I'd need about 12 lengths at about 13 quid each !
