    I battened the Artex ceiling in the bathroom and wondering whether I should staple some plastic on before screwing the plasterboard up?

    Here is a pic:
    Will be using non-foil-backed PB, skimming, then non-silk emulsion.

    Thanks.

    I would, yes.

    perhaps it would be an idea to fill the depth of the battens with insulation, as you might get condensation in there, as it’s a bathroom.
