I met with the tech and we went to the RV to check out our options. We discovered we could not remove the ceramic tile in the bathroom because the shower and cabinets unfortunately reside on top of the tiles. I decided to go with Allure flooring for both the toilet room and the bathroom. It’s a floating near 100% water proof flooring that we are going to put directly over the ceramic tiles.
Because the Allure is thin enough it won’t raise the level of the floor very much, we also picked up fake wood cord around. We are going to silicone the cord around so in the event of water spills it won’t easily get under the flooring. I picked an oak color to try and make it blend in with the honey oak cabinets and I think it will turn out nicely.
The more expensive option would be to have him dremel the tiles away or remove the cabinets and shower etc.. but our budget just can’t handle that right now.
I bought 2 boxes of matched lot #’s Allure oak flooring (feels like some kind of vinyl). It’s called Traffic Master and it has a 25 year warranty. The color here looks much lighter than the actual product.
For the toilet room I bought a riser box that will raise the toilet almost 3 inches higher making it a little easier to get off the thing. We are going to leave the ceramic tile on the floor in the toilet room as well. The ceramic tiles I have pulled up are the loose ones so I’m going to cut hardibacker to fill in since it’s the same thickness and we bought a product that we will use to fill in the grout lines so the Allure lays flat. Also we are going to use a product that will fill in the low spot in the floor so the hardibacker will sit flat.
Our target date for doing the project is 2 weeks, October 8th. I’ll take a ton of pictures and of course post them here.
Have a great Sunday everybody!
