Yet another little niggle.
In the main bathroom the builders took it upon themselves to make a
((I've been in software long enough to know that 'feature' is another
word for 'defect' ! - and this one's no exception..))
S0 - Lots of black and white tiles, looks like a cross between a
Bratislavan sauna - circa 1957 and an old-fashioned butcher's shop -
and about as inviting as both !
Anyway - we've sorted out the most impractical bits - but we're
puzzling over the floor-covering.
Currently has a complicated pattern of black & white ceramic tiles -
diamond-laid on plywood with zig-zag black & white border - yeuch!
To make it more exciting - some of the tiles are badly laid - so
they're 'clicking' as you stand on them....
1) Vinyl flooring - but you'd need to lift the existing tiles and get
back to a smooth surface otherwise any inperfections (like little bits
of tile adhesive) will show through
2) Clip-together 'wood' flooring - might work laid on top of the tiles
- but might not be so good in a bathroom with the damp
3) Re-tile - no thanks....
4) Lay flooring-grade t&g chipboard sheets on top of the existing and
5) Leave the existing tiles as they are (possibly find some way of
'fixing' the odd 'wobbly' one (small masonry drill and inject PVA
under the tile) - and lay underlay / carpet on top - but how to fix
the carpet grippers
6) As (5) above but use foam-backed carpet as a strictly short-term
solution ( a year or so) until we've got everything else finished
I should add that there's only the two of us, and we're both old
enough to be pretty good at 'aiming' toilet-wise, so that's not an
issue with the carpet <g>
Have we missed any other options ?
What does the team think ??
