In our laundry, I need to replace a section of the floor due to water damage. I am planning on putting a yellow-tongue 19mm thick particle board over the left-hand side of the photo to fix the floor. The right-hand side has tiles (area is about about 900mm wide).
Over the whole room, I want to put a vinyl floor or similar. I am worried about the unevenness of the tiles coming through the vinyl and being able to feel it underfoot. What are my options for making a smooth base (my guesses below):
- Nail 6mm plywood sheets across the floor. This is straightforward on the wood, but how to attach it to the tiles?
- A self-levelling compound. Does this just go over the whole floor, tiles and wood? Do I then need to waterproof it?
