I want to change my bathroom cabinets, but need ideas for floor. If I leave the same tile and the new cabinet footprint doesn't match the old, then there will be a portion of the floor exposed with no tile. What can I do to fill the gap?

    Add more tile. There's nothing else really. I always advice people to finish the entire floor, then add cabinets on top for exactly this reason. – Ariel Jan 7 '15 at 22:26
  • How big is the space between the new cabinet and the tile? – treeNinja Jan 8 '15 at 16:25

Some generic pieces of advice here:

  1. Buy cabinets with a bigger footprint.
  2. If a smaller footprint it can work out if there is an equal distance around the bottom. You can lay down mosaics to make a border. It really depends and we would need to see a picture for more help.
  3. Anytime you tile a bathroom, tile the whole thing. Cabinets should sit on the tile.
  • @mikeytown2 - in most cases it is easier too. – DMoore Jan 8 '15 at 5:35
