    How does one install rigid vinyl laminate flooring in a bathroom, next to the tub where one will not have a cove base board to cover any gap between the tub and the flooring. Typically, one caulks around the tub base and flooring (gap may be 1/8″). However, one doesn’t want the flooring to move away from the tub which will increase the gap and not look correct or provide good waterproof or water resistant protection.
