|The bathroom floor, BEFORE|
The flooring in our bathroom consisted of two layers of peel and stick tiles, very poorly laid.
So we decided to pull it up and replace it with tile. Here's the steps we took to lay the tile.
|Strip down the existing flooring|
|Remove the toilet, then screw in Hardy-backer board|
|Spread thin set mortar then lay tile with spacers|
Then we put the toilet back in, grouted the tile, let it dry for 16 hours and now we have a beautiful tile floor.
|Put toilet back in and grout tiles|
I still have to seal the grout, and mop the new floor but other than that it is done! Our bathroom looks and smells SO much better.
The project supplies cost less than $100, including the $15 it cost to rent the wet saw to cut the tile.
Have you found that replacing flooring makes a huge difference? Have you ever had a smelly room?
