We want to tile completely the walls of an upstairs powder room and we are starting with studded walls. It seems like too much work to drywall and tape and paint. Can we use a 1/4 inch plywood to apply the tile directly to the walls and grout after that? What do you recommend? This is a small space and it does not get a lot of humidity.
If this space has no moisture, at least 1/2 plywood is recommended. If there will be any moisture at all, use cement baced board, such as wonderboard.
Adding to Pauls good advice/I would also add wire mesh on top of your plywood/drywall/cement board...this will add many years to your tile work
