TILE A SHOWER WALL---TUTORIAL

There are many different ways to tile a shower wall. One of the most common questions I get is, "do you tile the wall or floor first in a shower?" In my experience, and the way I was taught, is to tile the walls first while stacking off a stick nailed to the wall. Then tile the floor, then lastly add the cut tile between the floor and wall. Another way it could be done would be to tile the floor first, then tile the walls. The problem with that is you could damage the floor tile as you are working on the walls. Also, shower floors may not be perfectly flat and level, making it difficult to stack the wall tile on the uneven shower floor tile.
I also get the question, "how do you layout wall tile for a shower?". Depending on the size and shape of the tile there could be different methods. But the most popular size today is a 12x24 porcelain tile, laid either in a horizontal or brick pattern. In this video, I show an easy way to lay out the tiles, using what is called a "story pole". This way, it is easy to check the layout of the 12x24 porcelain tiles in the shower itself without trying to remember fractions of an inch off of a tape measure. Since 12x24 is a nominal size (actual size will be something like11-13/16"x 23-5/8"), and grout joint width needs to be added, a story pole can make things much simpler. It is also important to make sure that the layout has a full tile is at the ceiling, and not a small or sliver cut.
