If your bathroom is in need of a facelift, you probably are looking at various styles of bathtubs, showers, and vanities. But don’t forget the floor! One important feature to update in your bathroom is the flooring. When choosing bathroom flooring, you will need to consider materials that are not only aesthetically pleasing, affordable, and durable, but also material that can withstand large quantities of water. Water is prevalent in bathrooms and can ruin some types of floors. Here are some of the top bathroom flooring options recommended by the bathroom remodeling experts, Booher Remodeling Company.
Porcelain or Ceramic Tile
Porcelain or ceramic tile is well suited for bathrooms because it is waterproof and has a rich, stone-like look. There are so many options in tiles, so you can create any look you want. Tiles come in all shapes and sizes, and can even be made to look like wood planks. However, tile floor is cold and slippery when wet, but you can use floor heating and tile texturing methods to remedy these issues.
Vinyl Sheet, Plank, or Tile
Vinyl is a great option for bathroom floors because, if installed correctly, it can withstand large amounts of water without being damaged. Vinyl comes in large sheets or narrow planks, and in a variety of styles, so you can easily find what works best for your space.
Everyone loves wood floors but, unfortunately, wood and water do not mix. if you want wood for your bathrooms, you should get engineered hardwood instead of solid wood. Engineered wood looks just like natural hardwood but it will hold up better to water. However, any kind of wood flooring is still vulnerable to water damage.
