The ceramic tile floor in our bathroom is unattractive. It consists of small tiles which are not uniform in size, combo of square and rectangular tiles. Since we are on a budget for remodeling, is it possible to cover the ceramic tile in our bathroom with vinyl squares? Would you recommend this?

Hi kcpnyc,

Yes, I'm sure you can do as you're thinking but it won't last very long. Vinyl Tiles need to sit FLAT. No, I wouldn't recommend it. If you're considering installing a 'sub-floor' on top first, that's OK but it would raise everything else in the room that much higher. Again, I wouldn't recommend it. (Next thing you know, the toilet won't fit because it's sitting too high ...)

Save your $$$ until you have enough to do the job right. That way, you won't regret it.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

If you REALLY want to cover the ceramic tiles with vinyl, I suppose you could get some levelling compound and level it first, then sand, then apply the vinyl.
