Pulling up vinyl flooring in both bathrooms, going back with 13 x 13 porcelain tile.

Should I pull up the toilet and tile toward the toilet flange? Or just cut the tile to fit against the toilet?

I'm concerned that if we DON'T tile up to flange, one day I'll need to change the toilet and we'll NEVER find a new toilet with the same footprint as the old one.

ALSO, I'm concerned that if we do tile up to the toilet flange, then the toilet may not properly butt up to the flange (even with the wax ring, I'm just not sure)

Any opinions or experience, I appreciate!

Thanks,

Jay

By all means you will need to tile under the toilet. If you do not, and the wax ring ever leaks, it will follow the gaps left under tiles adn grout to the walls and ruin a lot.

You will also need to pick up a flange adapter to raise the height for the tile floor, they are available at home centers.
