I have discovered a leaking toilet that requires me to replace my bathroom floor. This toilet has been leaking for some time now, the wax seal failed around the drain. The material under the linoleum is soaked and ruined. This house was built in the early 70's, my guess is the ruined material is particle board. I'm demoing the floor down to the subfloor, drying out the subfloor as much as I can and building it back up. What is the best flooring for a bathroom? The only material I'm ruling out for now is carpet. Tile is an option, what is the best tile material for a bathroom? Hardwood flooring is another option if it's a viable material for bathroom environments. Lastly, I'm planning to put in a cement fiberboard over the subfloor and under the finish surface. I believe this is the right material for a tile floor, but will this material be a problem if I use hardwood flooring for the finish surface?
