Hi,

I have a few questions I hope you guys can help me with?

I move into my new build house in a few months. We’ve decided to tile the en-suite and bathroom on the first floor, a total of about 6m2. As far as I am aware the floor will be chipboard of some sort.

I’ve never tiled but my dad who will be helping me has done a few floors.

I have purchased some Larvik Coffee 900x225mm wood effect plank tiles from Topps Tiles. We have also purchased some BAL ash grout.

I am intending to use 6mm Hardiebacker board, is this suitable for my use case? Do I need to apply waterproofing to the board?

I am going to use grey BAL SPF above and below the board. Is this suitable? I think I should be not using a rapid set (for more pot time) but my knowledge ends there.

I am intending to use some wedges from eBay (Shmox). What spacing? The bloke at the shop suggested 3mm.

Which type of trowel should I use for the tiles? 10mm U?

I was initially going to leave the toilet and sink in but they look easy to remove. The bath will be sealed in so won’t be coming out... Am I ok to tile slightly under it (say, one tile width) and the seal the bath panel with silicone?

Hope that’s not too many questions!!
