Laminate Wood Flooring

If you’re tired of your vinyl tile floors on your bathroom and you want to replace them with wood, you can have an option to select the best type of wood for your bathroom.

You can choose either laminate wood, solid hardwood and engineered wood or veneer.

These are some ideas for laminate wood floor installation for bathroom:

  • Be sure that all the water supply to the toilet is off.

Call a plumber if you don’t know plumbing job. Don’t just do it if you are not sure of what you are doing or else the unfinished job would be ruined if the water burst open.

  • Remove the toilet bowl

After removing it, the toilet drain should be blocked from the smell that may come out of it and to prevent things to fall into it. Be sure that you have the tools to reattach your toilet bowl when flooring installation is finished. You need to have bolts and a wax seal for the reattachment of your toilet bowl.

  • Take your old floor away

Clean the area free from all unwanted elements. The area must be cleared from all other stuff that might hinder your work.

  • Remove the base board and spread underlayment on the floor

Choose an anti-microbial underlayment that prevents the spread of bacteria in your bathroom. When putting the underlayment, be sure to leave space between the floor and the wall and between the flange of the bowl and the floor so that you can seal the area with silicone to avoid water damage.

  • Start installing your floor

Cut the laminate floor planks measured by the actual length of the floor area. This is a floating installation type of flooring where you have to install the boards into a sub-floor with underlayment.

  • Put expansion wedges on the edge of every installed plank.
  • Measure the circle of the flange of the bowl by using a circle guide.

Use the guide and mark it with a pencil into the plank that you are going to install over the flange of the bowl. Cut the marked area with a jigsaw.

  • Lock the plank into the already installed piece.

Engage the two boards.

  • Continue installing the remaining planks.
  • Take all the expansion wedges between the planks and the wall.
  • Seal the floor by putting silicone on the edge of the planks and between the flange and the laminate wood floor to ensure that the water will not absorb into the underlayment.
  • Put back the baseboard around the wall. In doing so, do not nail it into the floor but nail it into the wall.
  • Reattach the toilet bowl into its old place

Take away the block you have put over the hole and put the bowl into its old place using the bolts and wax.

You can now enjoy the new look of your bathroom with the amazing laminate wood floor. Hopefully, it will last longer than what you should expect.

Just remember that though it is laminated wood, it is not resistant to moisture and water.
