I have a small (7x5) bathroom that currently has those stick down adhesive backed vinyl tiles in it. I would like to replace the floor with ceramic tile as a start to a bathroom remodel but have some questions.
1. I was planning to remove the tile and then lay cement backerboard down over it as a solid base for the ceramic. I then heard that it is too hard to get the tile and adhesive off and that I should tile over the vinyl. Input?
2. If I get the vinyl up and put a cement board down (3/8") along with tile (1/4"-3/8") will I have trouble with the toilet sealing on the wax ring correctly or with the tile/carpet transition under the door (I have clearance)?
3. Should I take the tile and the wood base out and replace with just a cement board?
