That Time I Stuck A New Bathroom Floor

I spent a lot of quarantine time doing small home projects.  

My favorite was my bathroom floor and it was so simple!

I had old, dark vinyl floor tiles in my bathroom and I just did not like how they looked anymore. I thought about doing Pergo, like I have in the rest of my condo, but I found this awesome product instead. My bathroom floor is not level so Pergo would be super difficult and this was super easy!

It only took like 2 hours for the whole thing!!

Here is what I bought at Home Depot... one box was about $30 and that was all I needed for my small bathroom. 





Here is the before picture. See the dark, dark floor?? It looked awful next to my new wood floors in the hallway. So i removed the quarter round the whole way around the floor and started peeling and sticking.

Here is the first new plank on the floor!!!

These "planks" are just peel and stick and were sooo simple!!

Here is the completed floor....

This is a close-up of the hardest part. I had to cut around the sink and toilet and that was pretty easy too after a little practice. 

Another tricky piece to cut!

All in all, it was about two hours to lay the whole thing! Sooo  easy and I LOVE how it turned out.


Here is the side by side comparison...

I can not wait to show you all of the other little projects I did. 

At least something good came out of quarantine.

Oh, and PS - I went to dinner for the first time at a restaurant with friends last night. It was great! I loved seeing them. We ate on the porch at Walnut Grille and it was fantastic to be out and about town again!!

I hope everyone as an amazing weekend!!! HUGS to you all!

  7. OK... I’m totally impressed. That really looks good and I’ll look forward to seeing your other projects. Our bathroom needs a major overhaul, but I don’t think we can do it ourselves.

    1. Thank you Kay! It was fun - I only do the minor things too! But I bet if you google it and watch youtube videos you could do it yourself maybe. Have a great day! HUGS

  8. Wow, looks great! I'm inspired, we moved into a "new" house in March, and it needs a lot of upgrading. So, you just stick these planks on the existing floor??
    I have yet to get out to a restaurant since the lockdowns, but have been for coffee a few times - good stuff! Glad you had fun!

  10. Love the new floors, you'll have to let us know if there is any lifting from the steam when you shower. I would love to try something like this. How did you cut the planks that went around the bottom of the toilet?

    1. So far everything is still stuck! I used a paper template and traced around the toilet and then transferred that to the vinyl plank. If you google it on YouTube you can watch tutorials on how to do it. It works great! Have a great day Alicia - good luck!

  11. That flooring looks like what we put in the downstairs bathroom at our own house before it went up for sale.
