When it comes to flooring, the bathroom will require a few extra considerations that other rooms in your home might not require. As well the bathroom tends to gather more water and moisture than most other areas of the home. So along with being stylish, you’ll need your bathroom floors to be waterproof and safe. This article will take a look at some of the best flooring options that will help you tick off all the necessary boxes in your bathroom.
As with many other rooms in the home, Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring is quickly becoming a very popular choice for bathrooms for a number of reasons.
- First, LVP flooring is very easy to install. And in a room like the bathroom with many large objects like sinks, toilets and bathtubs to navigate around, easy installation can be very helpful. With vinyl tiles, you work with smaller more manageable panels that are easy to maneuver and install.
- LVP flooring is completely waterproof, making it ideal for the bathroom when factoring in moisture and water spills.
- Plus, LVP requires very little maintenance. All you need is to sweep and mop regularly to keep them clean. Should a plank get damaged somehow, you can replace that particular plank without having to fix the entire flooring.
Ceramic or Porcelain Tiles
- Ceramic bathroom floor tiles are available in endless sizes, shapes and colours to complement just about any bathroom set up.
- Like luxury vinyl plank flooring, ceramic and porcelain are easy to maintain and, when protected with a high-grade glaze, they will resist wear and scratches.
- Though typically a little more expensive and harder to install than LVP, ceramic and porcelain more than make up for it in style, with options like wood lookalikes, colourful penny tiles, or lattice-patterned squares.
Historically reserved for the foyer of the home, stone tiles are becoming a more and more common sight in the bathroom.
- Made from limestone, marble, granite, and slate, stone tiles are available in colours that range from creams to blues, reds, greens, and golds.
- Available textures are nearly as numerous and include cleft, tumbled, sandblasted, etched and flamed variations.
- Stone does require more maintenance than ceramic and LVP and regular cleaning and sealing are recommended. Plus, stone is typically more expensive than similar-looking ceramic or porcelain tiles, though it really will provide a luxurious feel in your bathroom.
