Bathroom vanity

I have read quite a few times where you shouldn't install a vanity on top of avaire tile since it's a floating floor system.

However, I was browsing this board and back in June or July there is a thread where the avaire team said it's ok to do so.

Basically, I guess I have seen conflicting opinions from Avaire on this subject, and would like to confirm Avaire's position.

I will be installing a new vanity that happens to have a "decorative" front where it meets the floor, and I envision this being quite the pain to snap the tiles together and get it under this decorative peice. If I'm able to install the tile first this would make my life easier, I'm sure.

Thank you very much,

Paul

Generally speaking, we do recommend installing cabinets prior to installing your Avaire floating floor. That would be especailly true for a large area like a kitchen.

However, we've installed vanities in bathrooms over the top of Avaire tile without issues. Unlike laminate floating floors that change size with temp and humidity changes, Avaire tile is dimensionally stable. I don't expect you'll have any issues if you install Avaire tile under your bathroom vanity.

Thanks for purchasing Avare tile!

Send us a picture when you are finished!

Dan,

As long as the tile is flat and stable, the gaps created by the groutlines will not be an issue.
