Side by side bathroom remodel - flooring?


I have two 2nd floor bathrooms currently completely gutted. A simple wall separated the two bathrooms, no top or bottom plate - just 2x4 studs.

I've removed the studs b/c I had to replace part of the subfloor, so the two bathrooms is currently one large room.

Does it make sense to get one large piece of vinyl flooring and cover the entire floor and then build a wall on top of the vinyl flooring dividing the room once more into two bathrooms?

Any pros/cons is much appreciated.

It may be more difficult to lay vinyl through two rooms considering all the pipes, etc. I would go ahead and lay in the bottom plate and top plate so you will have something to attach your studs to and either lay in each room separately with vinyl or ceramic tile (preferred). One disadvantage to building a wall on top is the shrink factor of the vinyl versus the wood that you will have entrapped it with.

That is a great point. I didn't consider that laying the floor and then a bottom plate could constrict the expansion/contraction of the vinyl and cause issues.

Thank you!
