    Bed thickness (600x400) 10 or 12mm?

    For a level floor. The tiles are 600x400x9. Reading old posts it seems 12mm is technically the right answer but would 10mm be fine?

    Thickness of WALL tile adhesive

    Insulation Boards thickness

    Minimum thickness for marble on a floor

    I have just had someone ask me if 4 mm thick marble is suitable for a floor. I've only ever used 10 mm thick, I assume 4 mm would be too thin? It's for a mosaic so they would be 10 mm x 10 mm x 4 mm. Thanks

    Thickness of Sealent Around Bath?

    Hello, I wonder if anyone would mind advising if the thickness of sealent applied around my bath is normal? My concern is that it's been applied so thick to fill in a gap between the tiles and the bath. Many thanks in advance for the help and advice.
