Full tiles in the corner? Really? I don't think pro tilers would do that. They know how unlikely it is that the walls are perfect. No, A is the proper approach if you are stacking them. It doesn't much matter if you are using a brick bond whether you do C or D.sunnybob":5f9nb0li said:...... Use full tiles at that corner going in both directions......
Because they won't be untidy, and because if the wall is a mm out of plumb you get a messed up grout line. And you'll never not see that.Phil Pascoe":3v1xg2wm said:.......Why put the untidy bits smack in the centre of the field of vision?
Many thanks for that suggestion. Tiles are 600mm x 300mm.novocaine":348re26v said:I dont know the tile size you are using.
Drop a plumb and scibe a true vertical line about 3/4 of a tile from the corner. Check the corner is is plumb from that line. If its a brick wall it will be out. If its framed its more likely to plumb in at least 1 direction. Nornally you'd set from your plumb mine and cut into the corner. You would also normally set form the bath and cut the top and bottom row at ceiling and floor.
As its just a shower id set a middle tile that sits dead centre and work either way off that to get equal cuts either end. This may not be doable depending on your tile size.
Running bond can look awkward in a small space and most would go for a stack bond. This very much depends on tile size and grout colour/width. We have just done a running bond with green lower and white upper and a double line at the join which looks great.
The backer boards are for tiles. Too late to do owt on the floor !DBT85":lr7d65zm said:
I mean on the board. Covers all the joints with some tape stuff and coat all the board with goop to just give water one less way in.RogerS":2f6s0vcy said:
Joints have just been taped and there already is gunge on the backer boards. Got short changed though with the waterproofing stuff. Supposed to have been 0.5L and Orbry. More like 200ml and not Orbry.DBT85":2bkj3se5 said:I mean on the board.
