    "Ensure walls are as flat as possible
    any old adhesive/grout removed
    tiling to get the best finish is all about preparation
    once walls are flat any holes filled use a suitable wall stabiliser or pva to seal in any dust etc

    hope this helps

    "You can buy a waterproof paint and brush it on, but that's mainly for wet areas such as the shower and bath but if your bathroom, in general, is damp, give it some ventilation before priming but make sure you wash your bath or shower tray after priming."
