Sit new Shower Frame on Tiles or on Wall?

Postby accend » Thu Jul 13, 2017 1:30 pm


I am installing a new shower cubicle and electric shower, taking the bath out and also having to put a false wall on the shower end to allow the cold water pipe to come up to it, but one thing has been on my mind and its to do with the tiling and the shower frame.

I'm buying a 800mm x 1200mm frame, and only want a full height of tiles around the shower, the rest of the bathroom is going to be tiled half way, but do I attach the frame of the cubicle to the tile, or do I tile so that the frame sits just outside the tiles, so the frame is against the wall rather than on the tile.

The tile I'm using is called metro, and it has a very slight bevel on it.
