I have UGLY mosaic tiles (avacado to be exact)in 2 bathrooms, that seem to be set in cement. What steps do I need to take to remove them & put down a new floor; tile or vinyl. Does it involve a sledghammer?

Good morning again DIYgirl,I have seen your problem handled in two ways.The first does involve a hammer,perhaps not a sledge,and a large chisel.You know where to go from here.The second way,though not the correct way,will save time and money.Clean the floor,apply a bonding agent and float with thinset mortor.Lay new floor and be advised that you will be raising your floor level 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch above what it is now.
