At what stage do you spray drywall texture in your bathroom remodel?


So here's where I"m at with my bathroom remodel.

1. Gutted (done)
2. Installed tub and drain (done)
3. Cut out and ran wires for new lights and outlets, switches etc..


About to put durock over tub and put up new sheet rocks today or tomorrow then put hardiebacker over the subfloors and install the new closet flange.

Once all the above is done.... do I want to texture the walls before tiling the tub and floors?

Do I paint after texturing before installing the floor tiles?

Obviously any order works but I wanted to see what would make the entire process easiest.

FWIW: it's a small bathroom so I'll be rolling paint.

Usually the texture and at least one coat of paint is applied prior to installing tile and vanity. It can be done in most any order but texturing first means you don't have to worry about keeping the tile spotless.

Do I have to worry about keeping the texture off the durock where I'll be tiling? Should I put a straight edge against 4" beyond the tub lip where I'll be tiling and scrap off the texture? Would the overspray affect the ability to get a straight tile later?

I'd mask off or shield the cement board although a little texture on it won't hurt anything.

#1, I would never suggest texturing a bathroom or kitchen ceiling.
I will be impossible to clean and will become a dust trap with the mist air and far more likely to mold up and come loose.

Re: At what stage do you spray drywall texture in your bathroom remodel?


I do texture a bath.... but I recognize what JOE is saying.

I use a light orange peal... mainly because I'm not that good at finish/skim coating and getting a really good flat finish.

I don't say it is right or correct, but I most likely would tile first and prevent texture spray from hitting the hardi or whatever.

Seems to me that texture will wipe off tile and grout very easily with a wet sponge. Easier than masking off the tile substrate.

While I detest popcorn ceilings in a bath rm [especially if there is a shower!] I don't have any problem with orange peel or light knockdown in a bath rm as long as it's primed and coated with a latex enamel.

As long as texture doesn't have paint added to it, it's water soluble and can be cleaned up fairly easy - I just don't like doing any extra cleaning.

A cheap 2 mil. plastic sheet taped up would be well worth the time and tiny bit of money, I just hate working backwards by preventing the clean up time.
