    Hi all

    Firstly I want to thank you everyone for the help.

    I just finished tiling the bathroom and ended up with a 10mm gap between tiles and bath (see picture) so now I can't decide what would be my best solution.
    I thought to raise the bath but can't go higher or lower because of the panel size.

    Any advice would be very much appreciated.

    Really your only option is to raise the bath and buy a 2 piece bath panel.

    Raise the bath and have a "bang on trend" shadow gap at the bottom of the bath panel, maybe fill that with an LED light strip!

    You can get a bath panel with an adjustable plinth on the bottom...How did you end up with that gap in the first place ???

    Raise the bath up a 2 piece panel will work and is the neatest option . Kop

    Thanks for the advice
    Before I commit to unscrew and raise the bath is there any quicker option. What about pencil tiles or a bath sealant trim?

    Cheers

    Thanks pdc.

    I just removed the bath in the end. How much gap between the tiles and the bath should I leave? What about the silicon? Any advice before I fit it again.
