New construction tile in bathroom.

I will be tiling all 3 baths in a new home. I will be tiling the walls in the entire bathroom(s). I am trying to make the bathroom as re-model friendly as possibe when I do tile. Is there a certain thinset or base the tile can be applied to so that if I would like to re-model the bathroom and say paint it in 10 or 15 years from now that the tile will come off the drywall without destroying the drywall? I considered putting applying kerdi to the drywall, then tile to the kerdi (just like a shower). However, I am not sure how kerdi would come off the drywall in 10 or 15 years.

thks!!
Larry

Larry, I'm not sure of anything in 10-15 years. You need a fortune teller.

I would use thin set and plan on tearing out the sheetrock should you decide to remodel down the road. I do that all the time. I cut around the tile and remove tile and sheetrock in one operation. Nail up new rock and tile over it.

Thanks John! I guess now that you mention it, it is not that big of a deal to replace the drywall. I like that, cut and remove all in one operation. Now that I think of it, I am really making a big deal out of nothing!

Thanks again!!
Larry

you can use Mastic and it will fall off in a few years.
