What order should I do these?


I'm remodeling a bathroom. The drywall (greenboard) and hardiebacker (around the tub and on the floor) are up, and the new tub is in, and the painted parts of the walls are done.

What's left to finish the job is the tiling around the tub, ceramic tiling on the floor, and putting in wainscot along the walls.

What the best order to do those three jobs? Or does it really matter?

Ideal--Floors first
Tub surround second

Trim work next--cut entry door if needed--vanity or pedestal sink

Final paint

caulk tile work

Light fixtures--towel bars--shower door or rod --

I would do the tub surround first in order to allow for making a mess before the floors.

Yeah, I was thinking of doing the floor last so whenever I spilled a drop of paint or caulk or primer I wouldn't worry so much about cleaning it.

My main concern was whether I should put the wainscotting on top of the floor tiles, or do the wainscotting down to the subflooring first and then doing the floor tiles to the wainscot. Just curious if one way was easier than the other.

Thanks for the replies!

Itís better and easier to put the wainscoting on top of the floor tiles if in the future you decide to replace the wainscoting you donít have to worry about the gap that is now left from the removal of your material.
