Great Options for Your Bathroom Flooring Upgrade

Avatar

If it’s time to freshen up your bathroom, have you thought about new floors?

Quality bathroom flooring enhances the safety and comfort of your space, while giving you the look and feel you want.

And with such a wide array of materials, colors and styles available, it’s easy to create a bathroom that expresses your personal taste and boosts the value of your home.

Let’s take a look at some of your best options.

Natural Stone Tile

Stone materials like marble, granite, slate and travertine give your bathroom a luxurious, high-end look that tolerates moisture and humidity like a champ.

  • Go with a sleek, smooth finish or opt for sandblasted, tumbled or etched textures.
  • Stone is extremely durable so you won’t have to replace your floors anytime soon.
  • Regular cleaning and sealing will keep your stone floors in mint condition.
  • Stone can be treated for slip resistance to keep you safe.

Ceramic or Porcelain Tile

Ceramic is easy to customize so you can get fabulous floors in almost any color or pattern. It can also be crafted to look like wood or stone.

  • Easy to maintain, ceramic tiles are durable, waterproof and stain resistant.
  • It’s easy to clean, so it works well in homes with kids or pets.
  • With moderate price points, ceramic gives you great quality without busting your budget.
  • Although it can be cold to the touch, radiant floor heating is an option for warming up your bare feet.

Mosaic Tile

Looking to add a little personality to your bathroom? Mosaic tiles arranged in an almost endless array of unique patterns may be what you need.

From subtle to dramatic, classic to bold, popular options include hexagons, chevrons, floral shapes and checkerboard designs — all in your favorite colors — making mosaic tile a great way to personalize your bathroom.

Cement/Concrete

If a minimalist, urban industrial vibe is your thing, a seamless stretch of concrete is a great option. You can choose a glossy or matte finish, cool gray or any color of the rainbow. And with no grout lines trapping excess dirt, cleaning will be a breeze.

As with stone and ceramic, cement tiles come in many shapes and sizes and can be arranged to create a wide array of custom patterns including classic floral, stunning Moroccan or dramatic zig-zags.

Wood and Wood Alternatives

Think wood is an automatic bathroom no-no? Think again! Innovative design techniques mean you can have a beautiful wood floor that can tolerate damp conditions.

Look for engineered hardwood specially treated to withstand heat and moisture, and make sure it’s properly sealed to prevent water from seeping underneath the boards.

You can choose light or dark staining or any paint color, as well as smooth or distressed textures to achieve the style you want.

Vinyl or Rubber

Waterproof, slip-proof and oh-so-comfortable to your bare feet, quality vinyl can be customized to look like stone tiles or wooden planks at a competitive cost.

Choose light or dark colors, checkerboard or circular patterns and a wide range of textures

It’s also easy to install, easy to clean, and durable enough to endure years of wear and tear and still look great.
