The Bathroom Floor

Saturday, January 30, 2016

We've finally decided what to do about our bathroom floor.  The floor that the house came with had issues.  There was a hole by the toilet and after taking out a partial wall it didn't completely join with the tub.  And even if those things weren't issues, the floor was made up of individual vinyl tiles that were starting to separate.

I got a quote from one company that said it could either cost $400 or $1400 to replace the floor depending on what the condition of the subfloor looked like once their workers got there.  And you had to sign a contract before anyone would be able to come out to look at it.  No thanks.

Shortly after, I asked a contractor if he could put in a new floor, but he said that he only does tile (which we knew we didn't want for the bathroom floor), so that was out of the picture.

I almost lost hope until I saw that one of my friends was replacing their bathroom floor with Vinyl plank flooring.  The selling point was that you didn't have to use any big intimidating machinery to do the cutting - just a snipping tool.  So we went to Home Depot that same day and priced out everything to do the entire bathroom floor.

We decided on TrafficMaster Vinyl Wood Planking (specifically Teak model #53712)
This is what it looks like so far.

I spray painted the vent cover (to cover up the rust and 20? year old paint stains).  I also put a fresh coat of paint on the door frame.

The project is only half way done, but I'm already really really happy with the results.  I can't wait to see the finished product!
