I have a T & G Bathroom floor and don't want to put ceramic tiles down as
it would need to be overboarded and then tiled - this would lead to an
annoying little step.
Saw some thin interlocking (like laminate flooring) vinlyl tiles and planks
today. Didn't have time to try to study them - but wondered if they would
be okay just on the plasticy floamed type underlay that was sold alongside
- or would I still need to board it - if boarding - could I then miss the
plastic foam stuff?
Is there any sort of floor leveling stuff I could use as an alternative. It
is a small bathroom.
If you want to use a thin floor covering, it would make sense to repair
the existing floor so it is level to start with. Anything added to the top
to level it is going to raise the overall height by more.
I've got solid engineered oak in mine. T&G, and nailed and glued direct to
the floorboards. Didn't actually say suitable for bathrooms, but then I
don't leave it soaking wet. It has lasted very well.
I used the same stuff as a surface for the inset wash basin unit. And that
obviously does get wet and often. But is wiped off each time. That also
has survived very well indeed.

The floor isn't "bad" - but the boards are very slightly convexed and there
are 3 - 4 mm gaps between.
My main need is to minimise a step into the room that would be a trip
hazard. My wife trips a lot!
