Hi.
The walls in my ensuite are coming along well...
Just thinking about the floor now.
The original tiled floor was tiled over thin sheets of plywood. The ply was on top of T&G chipboard.

Is it ok to tile on plywood? I seem to be coming across articles or posts that suggest not.

Really don't bother . You are far better off using Hardi backer and following their installation instructions . Trust me on it or google it

I've come across Schluter Ditra Matting when buying my Addy for the walls.
Is this any good?
Which would be best?
I've not research either yet. So I don't know how they are installed. Do you have to lay them on adhesive? Sorry, I'm at work and not got time to research just yet.
It's a chipboard floor. I think. Haha. It has no bounce. It's a very small area. About 1m x 2m. Perhaps 2.5m. can't quite remember.
