Hi all,
Can I use Floor tiles on the wall in my bathroom ?
It's a Plasterboard wall through out, I think the floor tiles may be too heavy for use on board but would benefit from experiance.

Yes you can but you are correct to be convcerned about weight. Unskimed plasterboard will take 32 kg/m2. Allow 2.5 kg/m2 (ish) for addy and grout and that will tell you how much you have to play with. If they are natural stone or very heavy use bagged cementatious addy not tubbed rubbish.
