When to install tile flooring?
 
I seem to be brain locked tonight. The bathroom is gutted, only sheetrock on a couple of walls. Everything else is bare studs. A new tub has been installed and I have installed furring strips for the backerboard/drywall on three walls around the tub.

So, walk me through the rest, please.

Install insulation and drywall/backerboard.
Tape, float the room.
Install trim.
Prep and paint.
Reinstall toilet.
Install ceramic tile for tub surround
Install ceramic tile on floor.
Install vanity (free standing, not a built-in), countertop and faucets, mirror and lighting.
Caulk anything that needs it.

I guess I'm confused as when the baseboard trim goes on - before or after the tile is installed.

Thanks.
All help appreciated.

i'd have to say after. it'd be a real pain to grout next to the baseboard and keep it looking good. just my 2 cents....

Install insulation and drywall/backerboard
Tape, float the room
Prep, prime and first coat of paint
Install ceramic tile for tub surround
Install ceramic tile on floor
Install vanity (free standing, not a built-in), countertop and faucets
Install trim
Reinstall toilet
Caulk anything that needs it
Second coat paint / touch up
Install mirror and lighting

I rearranged the order as I'd do it.

I agree with 47_47, however I'd do all the painting before putting in the floor, then do touch ups after everything is in and done.

That's what we did when we did our hall bathroom. We didn't take it down to the studs, but this is what we did:

Removed vanity and toilet.
Removed wallpaper, primed and painted 2 coats.
Painted vanity.
Installed tile flooring.
Installed wainscoting, base, chair rail and crown.
Caulked and touch up painted where needed.
Reinstalled vanity and toilet.
Installed new mirror and cabinet.
Hang pictures/toilet accessories.
