I'll be moving the bathroom to another room. By bathroom I mean a bathtub, a shower over the bathtub, a sink. Plumbing is already in place since the other room already had water fixtures.
I think what I need to worry about are:
- Framing under the bathtub.
- Moisture/steam in the room.
For framing I saw other posts discussing this and feel comfortable dealing with this.
Moisture and steam are of greater concern: I was going to replace current standard drywall with the one designed for wet areas. This is were my knowledge ends.
Steam will turn into water on all walls, do I need drywall for wet areas on all walls and ceiling? Drywall needs to be covered by something, one option is tiles. What are other options? In my current bathroom some sort of wall paper was used that doesn't get effected by moisture/steam, but I do not know what it is.
Is it possible to have a storage cupboard in the bathroom?
At the moment I am making a list of things I need to consider, know and do. I'll have more specific questions once I have the full picture, at the moment I would appreciate any comments on waterproofing the bathroom.
