Bathroom flooring can set the mood of an entire room. But even more important than appearance is how your bathroom flooring will stand up to moisture. For this reason, vinyl floors and ceramic tiles are two of the most popular choices for bathroom floors. Both are durable, inexpensive and water-resistant.
You’ll probably be barefoot in your bathroom, so you’ll also want to consider how slippery your bathroom flooring is. Many vinyl and ceramic flooring options come with textured surfaces to prevent falls. If you enjoy the look of ceramic tile but worry it will be too slick, consider using small tiles. The grout between each tile will provide a non-skid surface.
While porous flooring options such as wood and stone aren’t often used for bathroom flooring, that doesn’t mean you should overlook them completely. Both need to be sealed before they can withstand the humidity and occasional splashes that are common in bathrooms. If a wood look is important you might want to considerengineered hardwood flooring for your bathroom as its much more resistant to humidity than solid hardwood floors.
