I need something to use, between the time I tear out the old carpet, and
replace the floor with something new.
I'm thinking of thin vinyl tile, and removing it with a heat gun in a
few months. Any ideas on how I can work this, in such a way that doesn't
make the repair of the subfloor any worse, or harder? I'm thinking of
throwing a quick coat of primer on the wood subfloor first.
We're in the process of replace our bathroom floor, and we ran into some
problems with damaged underlayment. So, that's exactly what I did - I've
got a couple of large bath rugs that cover the bare wood on the floor.
Granted, it's a smallish bathroom - 4' X 8' open floor space - but I'd bet
you could find something similar that would do until you can get the floor
done the way you want it.
BTW - we're back at it this weekend, and by next weekend (only have weekends
to do this) we should have a new tile floor in the bathroom. Then on to the
next room to renovate.......
I'd go with the rug idea, too, but if the OP doesn't want rugs or carpet
I would suggest the cheapest peel 'n stick tile. It's cheap enough for a
few month's investment, and they don't usually stick well enough to be
problem to remove later. I doubt he'd need a heat gun.
Yeah, kinda a pathological aversion to carpet around a potty, from years
I didn't think about washable rugs, though, that would be fairly easy.
As would the tile, thanks all.
Who the heck puts carpet in a bathroom? (Rhetorical question, no answer
