Looking for opinions ...
The current vanity top is 4" white tiles, backsplash of same, bullnose
at front. Looking at the sink cutout from underneath, it seems like the
tiles are set in a mortar bed (wire mesh, and about an inch of mortar,
Googling, it seems that removing a mortar bed is a PITA, and tiling over
tile is an option. Further, since I tiled the floor, the counter is a
little low - so the added height would be a plus.
I'm thinking to remove the bullnose (so I don't end up adding depth) and
backsplash, and tile upwards from there.
Does this sound reasonable? Should I thinset in a layer of hardi, then
tile, or just tile? Sand down the tiles first, or just latex-modified
Bonus question: the current sink is a drop-in, but I'd like to use an
above-counter / vessel style sink, so I'd need to fill in some of the
cutout to support the tile underneath the vessel. Ideas?
