The bathroom floor in my condo has ugly pink and black tile. I can't afford to retile, but I was thinking of putting rubber flooring or a wall-to-wall rubber mat on top of the tile. I don't want to glue it down, just lay it on top. Any reason why I shouldn't? Has anyone done anything like this

Hi 5-9,
I have not done this myself but I will suggest that you periodically raise the floormat to air out the area beneath, especially in a bathroom. Moisture can build up between tile and mat and cause mold and mildew which can become a health hazard.........Mark Hammond

I have to believe that those non-skid mats that you buy to put under throw rugs will not stick to floors. If you put one of those under the rubber mat, it should work OK. Come to think of it, those mats are rubber themselves, are they not?
