I saw some pictures of epoxy floor online and I was fascinated by the beautiful colors and pattens epoxy offers. I will renovate my bathrooms soon, and I know epoxy is common for garage floor but I was wondering if anyone have experience of having epoxy in bathroom? Does it easy to crack with wood studs under? Does it seal well to prevent water penetrate through? THANKS A LOT!

It's a low budget option that WILL work... vinyl sheet will work better.

Back in the 70's there was a rage of Flecto Seamless Flooring put down here. It was a 2 phase epoxy. You put down the base color and then sprinkled colored chips into it. Let that setup over night and then come back over it with a clear coat. The stuff was not cheap and near bulletproof. I ran into some last month on a bath remodel and remembered what a pain the stuff was. The only way to remove it is to grind it off. It also came in some of the ugliest colors imaginable. It always reminded me of a sport boat floor with the splatter paint. The floor in this remodel was avocado with red and yellow chips sprinkled in with some silver and gold glitter. Unfortunately, color choices like this were common back then. If you decide to use it, you better like it cause it's a royal pain to get rid of it.
