DIY Bathroom Makeover Part Three

This floor had to go!!

I found a perfect and inexpensive way of covering my dated bathroom floors. At 0.79 cents each Vinyl tiles were they way to go, the price was right for my dwindling budget.

However, when I asked the landlord if I could install the tiles he said no because he thought the sticky adhesive would ruin the floor. 😦 Back to square one.

I decided to do some research and found a product called trafficmaster Allure plank and tile flooring.

“Now you can transform any room in your home in a snap. Wake up to your old tired vinyl or ceramic and you can be walking on a beautiful new hardwood or stone look floor before the end of the day. Lay allure directly on top of your old flooring. No surface preparation is needed. With our patented GripStrip™process, you just lay the allure planks down and secure them together easily, with no messy adhesive required. The planks stick to each other, not to your floor, and they were designed for easy handling. To cut, simply score and snap. Durable and water resistant, allure can be used in most rooms, including bathrooms and basements.”  

Doesn’t it look real? I purchased it at Home Depot, the color is Hickory and it was 10% off! They come in a variety of colors and if you don’t like the look of wood in your bathroom they have tile planks as well.

 I did this all by myself and the boyfriend was really impressed 🙂 It was easy to install, the hardest part was cutting around the toilet. It would have been easier had I had the right tools (fabric scissors….not so great). But I got the job done, even though I couldn’t feel my hands for two days.

Every time I go into the bathroom I sit back and admire my work 🙂

The bathroom is finally complete and wow what a transformation. We love it!!! The best part is the landlord has nothing to worry about because when we move, we can remove the planks and the tile floor beneath should be fine, with no sticky adhesive.

I ended up going over budget by $23.03 making the grand total of my bathroom makeover $123.03…….not bad at all.

Feel free to ask any questions or share your comments on the reveal.

  2. Excellent job!!! I just saw your bathroom makeover on pintrest. I was wondering how much did the flooring cost? My bathroom is about the size of your bathroom.

  3. Thanks!!! I got them at Home Depot for (I think) $39.00. I bought one box and still had some leftovers. A year and some later, they are still in great condition!
