Bathroom-Vinyl-Linoleum


Heh fellas
Were putting a new floor in the ensuite bathroom,the old vinyl sheet flooring wasn't even gluded down so it will come up real easy with no residue.Now we had a look at the Allure vinyl stick down floor tiles,seems easy enough that a DIY could put it down.Am I rightAnyone have any experience with this product.I know the green thing to do would be Linoleum.Is it high maintance? Do you know if it comes in stick down square tiles klike the vinyl.
P.S. Tile is out say's the boss!
Many Thanks

Lino is not really DIY, like vinyl.

linoleum is supposed to last for decades with low maintenance. Since its a natural product you wouldn't use harsh chemicals on it. It comes in squares like real tile or vinyl. It can be pricey. Someone else can tell you about install if thats the choice you're going with.

Curious though, is there a reason you may choose it over ceramic besides the fact that its softer and warmer on the feet. Just wondering

Hi guys
Thanks to all of you that have replied to my post, I appreciate the information!

Creeper,Well I thought my wife and I were going to do tile natural or ceramic,but she changed her mind saying it would be to cold.I mentioned that you can install it over in floor heating but she thiks it would be too expensive.I have not researched infloor heating I only know that it's an option.
Thanks

is there a bunch of cuts and angles? I am putting fiberglass infused padded vinyl in the basement bathroom I am building right now. Maybe you could use the old stuff as a template? I bought Mannington Sobella stuff. http://www.mannington.com/Residential/Sobella.aspx

Thanks for the reply and the link I will check it out.
To answer your question, no there are not any angles basic rectangular room, and I thought the same thing about using the present vinyl as a template as the present flooring is not glued down.
Thanks
