We are decorating a bathroom & want to have coving to finish off the room.
Question is do we put the coving up first and then tile or tile floor to ceiling and then put the coving on?

V. grateful for any advice

Given that you will need to cut the tiles up to the ceiling anyway, there is no advantage in tiling first. Put the coving on and then tile, most coving adhesives do not work as well on a ceramic (glazed) surface. See the DIY projects section for help with cutting ceramic tiles.
