I decided to do the sticky tiles because
*I didn't want to spend so much time on real times
*Laminate is not recommended for bathrooms
*Linoleum was reasonable, but the installation was pricier than I wanted to spend
That left us with the sticky tiles. I was pretty sure that I could install these all by myself.
I measured the square footage of the bathroom.
Bought the tiles.
Got the floors ready for laying them.
Put down a few and realized that my bathroom wasn't totally straight.
A quick call to Grandpa Pete and I was on my way.
He took off the trim and helped me find the best starting point.
I did quite well if I do say so myself!
I called him back when I got stuck on some corners.
He removed the toilet and did under there.
He also sanded my trim and re-stained it.
I was fortunate enough to have some great helpers!
My bathroom looks like a whole new room.
I just need some new rugs and something on the wall.
This is a before of the bathroom floor. An up-close shot shows the linoleum we have been living with. Although it looks dirty it is actually really clean. This is as clean as I can get it. See why I wanted a floor with less grooves?
She took the paper off the back so they would actually stick.
Fortunately it is not permanent right away - you have a chance to fix it.
I thought it was pretty cute that she did this.
The finished floor! I love it. It turned out great and I think it looks really good.
I registered for these when we got married. Looks like my tastes have changed although I am not so sure that this blue was ever my taste.
