I want to know if you can replace the floor tile in a shower, and also the bath floor, without tearing out the wall tile and replacing it. Has anyone had experience with this? I would appreciate any advice or comments.

While tiling your floor yourself sounds easy especially when you can save a few bucks doing so, if it does not come out the way you want it, it may end up costing you more in the long run when the tile guy or GC needs to come out and redo what you did.

Is there only specific tile that you can lay in a small shower floor with a drain in the middle? I have heard that you can only use tiles that come on a mesh backing, is this true? We are renovating an entire home from floor to ceiling and it is turning into a total nightmare.
