I am doing a complete renovation of a bathroom and I have a dilemna. The walls are now plastered and ready to go, and I have a carpenter and a tile guy, the tile guy wants to get in and tile all the way to the walls, including under the spot where the vanity will go and all the way to the walls. His opinion is the baseboard sits on top of the tile and there is no quarter round. Plus the vanity will also sit on top of the new tile. Meanwhile, the carpenter wants to install all the trim, including door casings, baseboard AND the vanity first and have the tile guy come in afterwards. His argument is that the floor is out of whack and it'll make his job harder to level off the vanity and the baseboards after the tile is in.
I'm not sure which way to go, as making it easier for one will make it harder for the other, but my gut says to let the carpenter trim out the door casing first, THEN the tiler will come in, use a jamb saw under the casing and tile everything, and once he's done have the carpenter install the vanity on TOP of the new tile and the baseboards on TOP of the new tile. What does everyone think is best?
