Helping my brother with his bathroom, he is starting from scratch as he is remodeling the entire bathroom so the tiles old villaboard walls etc have all come down.
I had a few people mention to me a different order in which the tiling should be done (not professionals) It's been a while since I did my own and just want check the way it's meant to be done and the order.
Out of the list below, what order would you advise or know it to be done? I'll put it in the order I was going to do and appreciate being told different or the correct way
1. Villaboard the walls
2. Waterproof the walls and the floor
3. Tile the walls from floor to ceiling (except bottom row)
4. Waterproof the floor and into the corners of the walls where meets the floor
5. Put down the bedding of sand and cement and float run off to the floor drain
6. Tile floor
7. Go around and cut in bottom row tiles
I'm 50/50 in thinking I should probably screed the floor first so that is waterproofed under the tiles itself rather than waterproofed under the screed where the floor is uneven etc

Rightly or wrongly the order that I tiled my bathrooms was as listed below:
I did the floor last to prevent it from being damaged when tiling the walls.
I also left waterproofing the floor to as late as possible to minimise possible damage to its waterproofing.
1. Villaboard the walls including putting flashings in corners behind the walls and between floor and wall.
2. Flush & Paint ceiling
3. Put down the bedding of sand and cement and float run off to the floor drains
4. Waterproof the walls
5. Tiled the walls from floor to 2.2m (except bottom row)
6. Waterproof the floor and into the corners of the walls where meets the floor
7. Tile floor
8. Go around and cut in bottom row tiles
9 Grout, etc
10. install fixtures etc
11. Silicone around fixtures

Best practice is a internal metal angle to join your wall with the cieling and tile on top. My only concern would be movement of house. I would imagine it will crack the grout.

Thank you for that! We are also a little worried because it was slab over slab (about 300mm of slab over existing slab). Our builder didn't put waterproofing over before…
