I am part way through completely refitting my bathroom and keep debating what the best approach is regarding tiling around the bathtub.
Most videos online suggest that you either fit the bath or at least mark on the wall and fit some wood to tile up from. I appreciate that this will save on cost but are there any other benefits to doing it this way over tiling the full wall? Could the tile sitting further out above the bath help to prevent water from sitting on the edge of the tub (see below)?
Tile above bath. Tile full wall ..| ..| ..| ..| --- ..|--- | ..| | | ..| |
I don't mind spending more money on tiles if it saves on cutting, etc. So long as it is either the better option or is not the worst option :).
