    Tile behind a towel radiator 19th Mar 17 at 3:59 PM
    Is it possible to tile behind a towel radiator without removing it?
    They have quite big gaps between the pipes that you could get your fingers through, I was wondering if it migt be possible with a bit of patience - any thoughts?

    If you want a decent job then take it off.

    How do you intend to grout between the tiles with the radiator in place?
    I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

    Possible, but it will look worse than the stuff that comes out a cows backside.

    Towel rail should be easy to remove.
