comment Should backsplash be tiled before or after installing kitchen cabinets?
We have the same for showers - bath first, tile after that.

comment Should backsplash be tiled before or after installing kitchen cabinets?
I will be installing IKEA cabinets for myself as well, and they do have legs. I don't see this kitchen working in another space. I don't quite understand your comment about legs and mobility. Could you explain what you meant by that? I almost always see cover strips for countertops around here and that means we always caulk between tiles and countertops, even if tile extends below countertop level.

comment How can I reduce the sound of water moving through a pipe?
@ChrisCudmore I live in a residential building. Can I install something like that on the part of the pipe I have access to?

comment When should a waterproof membrane be installed for shower tiling?
@UNECS Would wet-sealing be counter-productive for such bathrooms? I heard comments that "a wall should breathe".

@UNECS the buildings around here have either concrete or brick walls, which are then additionally prepared (see webgradnja.hr/clanci/unutarnja-zbuka/135 for photos).

comment When should a waterproof membrane be installed for shower tiling?
I apologize once again for my lack of experience - in my country the walls are most likely either concrete or brick, and they are smoothed with a limestone-cement compound (mortar/plaster?) - see e.g. webgradnja.hr/clanci/unutarnja-zbuka/135

Where exactly should the membrane be installed? Behind shower walls, beneath the shower floor (if a shower tub is used), around the shower?

@woodchips What could be the source of leaks? Where should I preemptively put waterproof membranes?

comment How should I prepare the shower walls for tiling to prevent mold and mildew?
I added that as a new question, so that I wouldn't spam the comment section: diy.stackexchange.com/questions/14213/…

I read somewhere on diy that a waterproof membrane could be userful. Do you know anything about that?
