you guys need to relax. just because someone asks for advice/opinions doesn't mean they have to take it. even if it is correct and sound. sides, the op didn't ask "if" they should do it.

I'm hardly worked up or need to "relax". My haha was it was just funny how everyone told him no and he just plugged along like everyone said go for it. I found it humorous more than anything.

We tried but he wants to do laminate no matter what.

Maybe when it fails, he will come back and ask why.

I didn't think getting a little water on laminate flooring was a big deal either until last Summer when my portable dehumidifier leaked onto it. It only leaked for an hour and made a small puddle. Ruined 8 boards right in the middle of the entire floor and they are quite noticeable even today. Now I understand!

To the OP, I would suggest at least getting a vinyl type tile that locks together for a bathroom. Use the laminate in another room or return it. Also I would think that of you screw your flange through the laminate it will prevent it from expanding and contracting and you will quickly see gaps between your boards.
