Happy Monday, everyone! Today, I’m over at The Home Depot Blog sharing how to easily tile a floor using vinyl tile. I recently updated the flooring in my mom’s bathroom and the result is incredible! Her home originally was built with carpet in the bathrooms. When she and my late stepdad had it built, it was more expensive to put linoleum in the bathrooms than carpet. They figured they’d just update everything with tile later on. They did update the downstairs with tile, but fast forward 16 years and the upstairs is still ALL carpet. I was able to quickly and easily install new tile flooring in her bathroom with beautiful results.
The vinyl tile is beautiful and looks just like travertine! While I was updating the flooring, she decided that she wanted the whole bathroom to have a new look so I remodeled the rest of the room, too. The results are gorgeous and I’ll be sharing those details with you all very soon. For now, make sure you visit The Home Depot blog to get all of the details on how to quickly and easily tile a room in your own home!

Why is it necessary to use a wood underlay? I was told that luxury vinyl tile/plank are good choices for a basement laundry room but that wouldn’t be the case with a wood underlay. My basement floor has a pitch that drains to the floor drain and would be desired to be maintained. It would also be expecteded to occasionally get wet, which also would discourage use of wood in the flooring. Just curious. Thanks for the tutorial!

I needed to use the wood underlayment over the wooden subfloor because it was quite rough and the vinyl tile wouldn’t get very good adhesion to it. The underlayment is not necessary for cement floors.
This vinyl tile looks great and is super easy to put down! Thanks for sharing this guide!
