I’ve got a semi-go-ahead from Mrs. R to redo the basement bathroom in a sort of steampunk style, but I need some advice on flooring.
The current flooring is self-stick vinyl tiles, which, because of the general dampness, have come loose. The ones which haven’t come loose have effluorescence crystals growing in the cracks between them.
Once in a while, say every five years or so, there’s actual water standing on the floor.
There’s not much chance of my being able to improve the drainage to prevent water from getting under the floor.
So, given that I’ll have a dampish floor, what would be the best floor treatment? More vinyl tiles? Vinyl sheet flooring? Bare concrete, stained? Something else?
