need advice how to tackle bathroom floor remodel
So here is the scenario:
i want to temporarily upgrade my main bathroom, including:
-Painting all walls
and then to the hard part
id like to change the appearance of the floor as its awful colors.
is there anyway to paint over it or some quick easy fix before we do a full remodel in 1-2 years?
here is a picture of the bathroom floor
The most economical and simplest solution is going to be "sticky" vinyl tiles which run about .99/sqft . Be sure to use an appropriate floor patch to even out the floor so that the lines don't show through. You should also consider using a 1/16" notch trowel and adding adhesive as you lay the tile. It's not required, and its an addition $12 or so.. but in my experience the sticky tiles don't hold up that great with out it, especially in hi humidity areas.
we have about 50 sqft and found a few around 80cents that we like alot
Awesome, be sure to post a picture when it's done! I'd like to see how it turns out.
No way would I have ever suggest using peel and stick tiles for anything, any place in a home.
There near imposible to lay in a straight line because they try and stick to quick and are near impossible to adjust to get straight.
They will shrink over time and have open gaps.
They need a perfectly flat floor to stick, if not there going to come loose.
I'd just deal with what you have until you can afford to do it over.
I've never had any adjustment issues nor a hard time laying them straight, perhaps because I've always spread a thin layer of adhesive as I lay them. Agreed shrinkage is a common issue over time.. but NOT within the first 2 years.
Simply put, it's under $100 and a few hours worth of work. Sounds better than painting it which is a bad idea. :no:
