Cement board around shower but what

alan_s_thefirstAugust 8, 2012

elsewhere? I'm tiling above and to the sides of the shower, and will use easyboard there, and probably have enough to do the small wall around the vanity, and across to the shower (basically two walls will have tile floor to ceiling.)

I also have blueboard - the moisture/mould resistant drywall which I was originally going to use behind the vanity, around the door and up to the wall where the easyboard/cement board starts.

Is there an advantage going one way or the other? There'll be some sort of waterproof membrane going there too around the shower at least - will I need it on the wall beside the shower, or behind the vanity? The sink is the sort with no splashback, so it'll be caulked/siliconed to the tile to eliminate gaps and leakage.

"I also have blueboard "

Blue-board is for veneer plaster.

Green-board is what you can use.

Once you put primer and a few coats of paint even it is overkill for the non0wet walls in a bathroom.

Actually, the blueboard I have is what we seem to have instead of greenboard - it's made for wet areas. I don't know why it's different, but I'm in Canada.
