    Hello all,

    I'm putting vinyl click lock tiles in a bathroom (they tick many boxes for the wife, me id prefer lino).
    Since this is like laminate you can secure through it as it needs to expand and contract.

    I'm wondering if anyone knows how to deal with the toilet? Am I going to have to cut around it? Seems like a lot of effort and it'll probably look rubbish.

    Since the area secure by the toilet is small, would it be acceptable to just secure it to the floor? The area under the toilet won't be able to move, but the rest of the floor will be free to expand and contract as required.
