hi guys,

please excuse my terminology if i dont describe my current diy job. i have just ordered tools from amazon... cube laser, trowel, float, grout etc... i have not ordered the leveling tile kit yet as there are so many to choose from so hopefully someone can recommend a cheap good kit.

anyways, i am about to start tiling my bathroom but im not sure how to tackle the outside corner inside the bathroom. my choice is the offset method rather than the stacking one. maybe you can convince me otherwise :/

i would also add that i cannot get the rest of the pant off the wall as its stuck pretty good. ive read on google that all paint should be removed or by doing heavy scores in the plaster to make the adhesive bond. what do you recommend for heavy scoring the walls as i feel using a razor blade is not suffice.

i also have to tile the floor and upon checking this it looks like a 9m ply was used for the tiles already laid. should i use the same thickness of ply when i do the floor? if so, then i will be left with a step up into bathroom like before (not a big problem) around an inch height. i need to rip it all up anyways due to radiator pipe work and water inlet for toilet being offset.

the measurements for wall width 22cm for left width and 45cm for the right width. the tiles for the wall are 298mm x 498mm bought from b&q. if you need any more info please tell me.

should i start tiling the walls first or the floor?

ok so how do i tackle the outside corner when tiling round onto the flat? do i have a full tile cut all the way down both sides or have mini cuts with an offset look?

If you want an off set look, find centre of both walls and draw a plum line top to bottom on each.
Whether you choose to start full piece or cut piece on the first row is entirely your choice.
For us we would see how that relates to the whole room rather than focusing on that one small area.
So follow the bond around the room see if it presents complications elsewhere.
This is the look you will try to achieve.
Every other course will look like one tile wraps around the corner.

after much consideration i will stack the tiles, not my preferred choice but should alleviate much headache. it will look nice but not as nice as i can visualise :(

as for my outside corner (left & right)im assuming that i will just use cuts to stack/lay up the wall and then work from the middle main wall in the photo.

also, when i attempt the floor is it ok or pleasant to the eye to have the offset look against a stacked wall tile?

just need to get a baton and plywood from b&q :) and its hammer time :)

cheers
