The first step for any bathroom floor is to assess the subfloor, e.g. plywood or concrete.
In this example we had a wood subfloor and joists were 16″ on-center.
Strata Mat was used over the wood subfloor as the uncoupling membrane. That was waterproofed with Hydro Barrier.
Our prior video tutorials share how to install and waterproof Strata Mat
Laticrete 4XLT thin-set mortar was used to bond Strata Mat to the wood subfloor and over top the mat, too.
The biggest challenge with tiling bathroom floors outside curbless showers is ensuring tiles are square with the shower pan entry.
