    So my new bath is in, and I've given myself the job of tiling the bathroom. It's an acrylic L-shaped shower bath, one wall is newly plastered and the other (where the shower will be mounted) is a stud wall with Hardiebacker board:


    I'm using flat matt white metro-style ceramic tiles, 200 x 100mm.

    Thinking of proceeding as follows:
    Am I on the right track? Or missing anything?

    Thanks

    It's not what I would have done, but given the situation you have now got, it will probably do.
