Backerboard for small bathroom

Post by jai » Fri Feb 27, 2015 2:35 pm

Hi Shannon,

I have a small 5' x 8' bathroom that I'm planning to demo to the studs. The shower and parts of the other walls are tiled. Going forward, I plan to tile the shower and paint the remaining wall sections. Should I use backboard throughout the bathroom since it a relatively small space?

Backer board is heavy , more expensive and harder to work with. It also does not always paint up as nice as drywall so I would use it only in the tile areas.
