First Mate


We just installed a new toilet. The previous toilet was the original to the house, or, 30 years old. Our dilemma: the flooring doesn't meet the footprint of the new toilet base! It involves approx. 2" in 2 areas in the back section and 1" in 2 areas in the front section. (Total: 4 tiles). We replaced the floor approx. 10 years ago and most likely Home Depot won't have the same laminate tiles available! What to do??!?! Any suggestions?

If you are meaning VCT, why not figure out a pattern you could make if you heated a few more and took them up?

Those self-adhesive tiles go down and pull up in minutes.
Start over with new product.
And this time pull the toilet, lay the tile, replace the toilet.
Cutting the tiles around the shape of the toilet is lazy.

Or you could always just buy a cute little rug that fits around the toilet and covers up the missing tiles?
