We are planning on installing some type of laminate (undecided) which will stand up to wear in the bathroom.
Obviously the laminate needs to be installed under the toilet. We do not know what "under the toilet" currently looks like as it has never been taken off. I guess we'll deal with that when the time comes.

Not sure though, how the laminate and the toilet exist together, because there will be a layer of foam under the flooring. If we tighten the toilet down, won't it press permanently on the cushiony flooring causing it to buckle? Perhaps there is some other method of dealing with this problem, so that the flooring will not looked pressed upon under the toilet.

How do you physically install the toilet on top of the laminate flooring?

Also, is there some kind of extremely flexible molding we could use around the base of the tub, as it is an older model tub, and the surface that needs the molding, is not constantly a straight line.

Thanks for any help you can give!
