Forum Title: Tile Pattern Not Level To Floor
I know that the conventional wisdom is to tile walls less bottom one or two rows, then floors, then bottom tiles, but I have a tile pattern that is not parallel to the floor or tub surround (It's actually parallel to the sloped ceiling) and I'm thinking it makes more sense to just set the floor and surround, then do the walls. I can't think of a quick and easy way to support the wall tile in this situation. See attached drawing of the tile pattern and let me know your thoughts. Thanks, Dave

I am not seeing an issue. I tile the bathroom floor first so I can set cabinets and get the tops in fabrication. For your situation I would set the wall, the tub sides and tub top last. Grout the plane changes and no one will know what you set first.

You will need to snap a bunch of reference lines. Install the bullnose Set a ledger Set that row and the next Use a snapper right there Stone the snapped edge Use something sticky like Mapei UltraFlex3 or their LFT
