    Default Metal laundry tub not flush to wall

    Iv retiled my laundry floor and have hit a bit of a stump. The wall is square but the floor slopes away. Before I pulled the old 15cm sq tiles up the floor sloped away from the walls toward outside door wen I sat a spirit level on the floor
    I could secure the cabinet to the wall only itíll have a 7mm gap on the front bottom to have to silicone or I could leave it on the floor and fill the back cabinet top gap to the wall with silicone only cabinet n tub wonít be sitting level

    The new tiles are layed and grouted I donít wanna have to pull them bk up to grind the original screed bk to flatten it. Iíd rather pack the cabinet up n use silicone if I can

    Iv stuffed up somewhere using these larger 30cm tiles Iíd appreciate any ideas to try make this work. I thought about a leg adjustable flat pack cabinet but itís just gonna get costly finding a benchtop n drop in sink n then get rid of this metal cabinet


    Thanks legends

    Hey Shane,

    Could you re-clarify a couple of points?

    You said the wall is square and the floor slopes away - Yes?
    So if the cabinet was secured to the wall, wont the cabinet be sitting level (at the top)?

    If so, you could put some packers are the bottom and run sealant right around the sides and bottom....and its likely no one would notice. Also, isn't there a lip at the back for wall tiling to go over?

    You just answered my question mate thanks for that, yes those points are clarified and there is a lip there for tiling only I want to install a mixer tap to 1 of the washing machine drain holes at back of the stainless sink if possible. Iím not sure if thatís a good idea putting a mixer tap there if Iím tiling over the lip
    Thanks mate for the reply

    If its secured in place correctly, will be fine. I've a metal tub set up just like this with the mixer tap in one corner of the tub. Been there for 7 years and works well.
