I'm planning to retile the shower cubicle and intend to simply tile over
the existing sound tiles. Is there any particular kind of preparation I
would need to undertake/particular type of adhesive to ensure a solid fix
between the two sets of tiles?
Although I've never done this I hear tiling on tiles is perfectly OK. The
main thing is to ensure the adhesive can get a good grip on the old tile
either by roughening the surface with a wire brush or the like or applying a

I had a go a few years ago and the main thing is to make sure your old tiles
are clean from any soaps, shampoos, etc and there shouldn't be any problems
with the adhesive sticking the new tiles to the old.
Did this a few months ago when half tiling my kitchen. Just washed down with
sugar soap. They really are stuck as I needed to remove a couple after a few
weeks and had to whack them very very hard.
Good luck that took us several months with countless trips to DIY stores.
And guess what we bought the ones we saw on our first trip. I learned a lot
and too the easy way out - no small tiles - no big tiles (have 150 x150). I
nearly bought an electric cutter but didn't and found some of the scribes
did not suit me but one from Screwfix did and as others told me it would be
faster and cleaner and it was.
