I could use some ideas for covering a concrete bathroom floor, am a bit stuck. AIUI the main options are vinyl, tiles, carpet, and expensive applied waterproof finishes such as asphalt. I've tried an impermeable finish (vinyl) and the result is the concrete soon becomes soaking wet, and anything attached loses its grip, and of course if left like that theres going to be quite a damp problem. So it needs to be something porous (it stays dry with a porous covering) - and all I can think of is carpet! Nooo, pleeease. Is there anything else?? Or is there no other choice for this one.
If carpet is the only choice, I wouldnt know what carpet to use. Bathroom carpets IIRC have an impermeable backing, so theyre out. That leaves only non-bathroom rated carpets, which sounds less than ideal.
