Vinyl plank or wall tile first?


Gutted a bathroom, very slowly putting it back together. Vinyl plank for the floor, subway tiles for the wall around a freestanding tub. What should be installed first?

Walls. It's messy, so you don't want to destroy your plank flooring while you are doing the walls.

Re: Vinyl plank or wall tile first?


I think vinyl flooring calls for expansion gap. As such, you want to do the floor first. Undercut the tile backer so flooring can slip under with about 1/4" gap. Vinyl flooring, if floating, is not water proof so you want to protect the underlayment. Maybe redguard.
