1/2 Bath Remodel

Hello! I am remodeling the half bath shown below in the pictures and would like some advice. I plan to pull out all of the rest of the 3/4" X 8" boards because of rot. I plan to then strengthen the floor by adding 2X6 where needed then covering with 23/32" OSB. Then add a 1/4" cement board then finally tile. Is this the proper subfloor for tiling this room? It is a very small bath essentially 42" X 57" at its deepest. Thanks!

Welcome, Craig.

Your photo is way too small for some of us to see anything much in it, and I'm just seeing the same photo in each of two posts. Post #3 says it's "another one," but looks like a dupe of post #2.

You'll need to give us a whole lot more information about your floor structure to get any meaningful feedback. Start by entering the requested information into our Deflectometer in the dark blue bar near the top of the page.

Advantec is a good subflooring product. 'Fraid that's all I can tell you at this point.

Hi Craig...........

and welcome to Tile Your World forums.

You subfloor plans do seem OK for a tile covering but..... what about the suitability of this floor's substructure (joists).

Use our "whirl famus" DEFLECTO tool in the blue bar at the top of this page to help determine your floor's substructure deflection.

EDIT: What 'See Exx' says above..... he's quicker-en-me'.

I was good with the deflecto after I sistered three joists. I have put in advantech flooring and permabase.


I want to tile in a diagonal pattern What is the best way to set this up?

Craig,

Draw the standard cross hairs in the center of the room running horizontal and vertical. Measure the width each way.

Starting with a whole tile dead center, one point on each of the two lines, Take your tiles and line them up, point to point on the longest axis. Use the spacers you intend to use. Look at what's left over at the walls. Do you have more than half a tile? Less? Will you have tiny triangles?

Check the other axis the same way.

You can shift the pattern 1/2 tile horizontally or vertically to get rid of any triangles around the edges that are annoyingly small.

OR

You can do as above, then figure out how thick a solid border would be to rid yourself of those pesky teensy triangles.

That is the most logical explanation that I have read. The part about setting the tile on the lines is what did it. Thanks!

Thank you.

Its my personal bathroom. The walls are crooked by 1.75" over 10 feet so I used the black border and the diagonal layout to hide that.

That is my goal to hide the out of square walls.

Then a wider border may be in order. In the pic you can also see how the border gets wider at the (crooked) doorway and narrows again at the wall on the far side (out of line with the nearer wall)

A 1/2" difference on a 2 inch border is more visible than a 4" border
