Remove the toilet and sink. Remove the baseboards around the room. These can be pried off the walls with a hammer.


Step Two

Use a putty knife to pry up one end of a strip of vinyl. Pull up the vinyl flooring one strip at a time. If the floor is full-bonded, meaning the entire floor is glued down instead of just around the edges, use the putty knife to loosen the length of strips of flooring.

Step Four

Remove loose adhesive from the sub-floor with a long handed chisel. You can also use a heat gun to soften the adhesive for easier removal. The floor should be smooth.


Step Five

Make a template of the bathroom floor using craft or butcher paper. Lay the paper out on the floor and cut small holes in the paper so you can tape the paper to the floor while marking the template. Using scissors, cut out the template of the bathroom floor.


Step Six

Cut the vinyl. Roll out the flooring and lay the template over the new flooring. Tape the template to the vinyl floor using the holes previously cut in the paper. Cut the new vinyl flooring according to the template.


Step Seven

Lay the cut vinyl floor in the bathroom to make sure that the fit will be good. Trim the vinyl floor if needed. Remove the vinyl from bathroom.


Step Eight

Spread adhesive on the floor using a metal trowel, backing out of the bathroom as you spread the adhesive.


Step Nine

Roll the floor with a 100 pound roller. Work from the center of the room out. Reinstall the toilet and sink. Replace the baseboards.


Step Ten

Unroll the new vinyl floor over the adhesive.
