I am converting an airing cupboard into a shower. 2 walls are block & plaster & 1 wall is a stud partition with plasterboard& skimmed. a ceramic shower tray 800 x800 is to be install and a glass shower screen to be install.

To minimise cost & work:

Q1) Are there any other wall covering in the shower cubicle that I can use other than tiling?

Q2) If using tiling, do I need to treat the existing wall prior to tiling?

Q3) What to use?

Q4) Do I need to fix aquapanel or others prior to tiling?

Q5) How about the plasterboard & skimmed ceiling? Above is the loft.

Q6) What are the possible problem if none are carried out?
