We are restoring our 1923 Craftsman and discovered that we have 1 inch hex tile with gray grout in the original bathroom. The problem is it has 2 or 3 layers of vinyl glued directly to the floor. The section we have been able to expose is in excellent shape. We have had mixed responses from local tile experts on whether this beautiful floor can be restored to its original beauty. Please let us know what our possible options are and if there is ANY way at all to save our wonderful floor.

Thanks in advance for your advise. We are crossing our fingers!
