I have a few packs of Tarkett engineered wood floor left and want to use them for my (small) bathroom floor rather than sell or chuck them. The bathroom floor is (carpeted!) big sheets of tongue and groove flooring chipboard (green) in a 5 year old house

The underlay I used on ground floor was heavy timbermate excel with built in DPM. I understand that a DPM is wrong for upstairs.

Any advice on brands or where is best to buy alternative underlay? (e.g. B&Q ok?). Im in Herts/Cambs region. There seems to be a variety of brands and weights of wood/laminate floor underlay out there. I need to buy so little as bathroom is only about 2.5x2 metres so ideally dont want to buy huge expensive roll.

p.s. I will use waterproof wood glue for the joints and silicone the edges at expansion gap. I may also put a coat or two of floor varnish on top too.
