    "Shower tray needs to be installed before tiling. If you’re tiling half/all walls then all tiling should be completed before install of basin/toilet. If you’re just having a splash back on the sink then the tiling for that would be done after sink installation."

    "When I install bathrooms, I install the shower tray first, then tile the walls and floor then fit the basin and toilet and tile down to the tray. You get a nice finish this way"
