Would I be an idiot to retile floor before replacing alcove tub?
We have a guest/future kid bathroom with ugly pink tile floor, almond alcove shower/tub, orange oak vanity, etc. and are looking to refresh it on a budget.
I'm thinking re-tiling the bathroom floor would NOT be beyond our ability to DIY, but ripping out the alcove tub definitely WOULD (we are like 25% handy and youtube videos about replacing alcove tubs look extremely intimidating).
We're not really interested in getting tub recoated because it's kind of crappy to start with. It will be coming out, maybe in 5 years.
Would we be idiots to redo the floor before re-doing the tub? Will getting someone to rip out the tub at a later point damage the floor? Should we wait and do the whole thing at once?
Our alcove is 3 pieces, kinda like this but uglier:
