I am doing research on new bathroom floors. Currently my 2 bathrooms have ceramic tile from the 70's when the house was built. In one bathroom about 10 tiles are missing and in the other, well the people who lived here before us thought the big bathroom was a great dog kennel so I don't even want to know what is in the grout, but it won't come out. So, I was thinking about vinyl tiles for both bathrooms. It seems to be the easiest to lay but I don't know where to start. Also how easy is it to take out the toilet. And one more thing, what should I seal the edges of the tub and vanity with so water doesn't get under it??? Any help would be great! Thanks for your time

There are a number of web sites that show basics of how to lay vinyl tile - do a Google search. Also check H*** D****'s and L***'s websites.

If you are laying vinyl, you don't need to remove the commode.
