View media item 18065Is it ok to plaster the inside kitchen walls using sand/cement/lime 5:1:1 then skim topcoat with plaster finish. Or use one of the thistle plasters in a bag or dot dab plasterboard it all then skim?
Not arguing with you on this one - haven't used it enough to know. Can you set plasterboard further out to allow for levelling etc?iv used it loads of times and swear by it,obviously sometimes dot and dab is better when walls are out of plumb etc. either one are the best options i guess its just personal preference
am i best tiling behind kitchen worktop units from floor upwards to the bottom of wall cupboards, or just as well the much smaller area between work surface and bottom of wall cupboards?
Trying to catch up a bit so haven’t read the thread in any great detail but I’ve got to agree with the hard plaster finish 10,000%, be it render or base plaster.if it was my kitchen i would float it with hardwall then skim i would d&d the reveals and leave about 11mil lip to float off of, in my opinion you cant beat solid walls especially for fixing units
Just another question while i'm here-Although i'm trying to suss what to do with the kitchen wall,what is also the best option for the bathroom area. Aquaboard top to toe for shower area. One half bathroom will be studded other can be solid wall. A combination then of aquaboard and moisture resistant?
