Hi Guys,

Hopefully this make sense ...

I've completed tiling the walls of a W/c with just the row at floor level to do which will be approx 10-15cm high.

Should I install this last row before tiling the floor, or is it normal practice to do the floor first and then have the first wall tile "sit above it" (with 5mm gap)?

Cheers

ah

I normally tile the floor and then finish off the walls. Think it gives a neater finish

Tbh it’s down to personal choice. If the floors done first it needs well covered and well protected.
However if you do the floor first it gives a nice level surface to work away from.

Sorry I should have been clearer, I do tile the walls first but leave off the bottom row, then tile the floor and then put in the bottom row of wall tiles.
