How to Choose Flooring For Bathrooms

Your Personal Space

In the bathroom flooring is important. The world today give us so many responsibilities and distractions to attend to that we all seek some kind of oasis of peace. Frequently in our homes, it is our bathrooms that we retreat to for some quiet “me” time. Whether the style of this room is classic, spa inspired, conservative or glitzy, the most important part of this room is going to be the floor. You want the bathroom flooring to be safe and durable while reflecting your personal taste.

Considerations

When choosing a bathroom floor there are some key considerations you must make. Our designers can help you determine the issues unique to your bathroom and find the right solutions.

Style
Your distinctive style should always be a consideration. As other factors shape the options for your bathroom floor, your style will help you navigate the myriad of color and design options available for your bathroom floor. 

Traffic
Do you have children and/or pets that will be sharing the space? Hardwood flooring can create a warm inviting look in the bathroom but if there is going to be a lot of wear and tear on the floor you may want to look at wood look tile or Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)

Budget
Budget should always be a consideration. You can find new options with even small changes to your budget. Do you have a budget you’d like to strictly adhere to, or do you have a little wiggle room in your wallet? Our designers can help you find options that will match your style AND your wallet.

Are you planning on staying in your home for 5 years or less or is this your forever home? A new floor will improve the value of your home but only to a certain point. If you are planning on selling soon you will want to make sure your floor maximizes the resale value. If this is your forever home, then your personal dream floor awaits!

Material
There are so many flooring material possibilities when it comes to the bathroom. Because there is a high likelihood of water on the bathroom floor, carpet and hardwood are not as common as some of the more water friendly materials. We have listed the best types of flooring materials for bathrooms below.

Best Types Of Flooring For Bathrooms

TILE FLOORING

Tile is the the go to bathroom flooring material. There is such a wide variety of options available that you can create any look imaginable with tile floor. The water resistance, when properly grouted, is fantastic. Traditional porcelain or ceramic tile is readily available in various shapes, colors, sizes and patterns. There are endless design possibilities using these versatile materials.  And don’t forget the classic beauty and elegance of marble.  The natural variation in color enhances the interest in this timeless, and still current stone. When laid in forever patterns like basketweaves, Versailles, herringbone, and some of the more unusual mosaics, this is a statement product that will delight you and yours for years to come.

HARDWOOD FLOORING

Do you see yourself in a Scandinavian inspired sauna/bath? Hardwood floors are a possibility especially in the engineered variety offered today. Additionally, keeping with the wood concept, there are numerous companies making porcelain and ceramic tiles that look like wood and come in a variety of plank sizes, colors and textures. Referring back to the above mentioned LVP,  there are plenty of plank products that really do look like wood, while being extremely user friendly for folks with families.

LUXURY VINYL TILE

The burgeoning growth of luxury vinyl in plank (LVP) or luxury vinyl tile (LVT) products mean that there are many attractive, comfortable, and stylish products to choose from that are water resistant easy on bare feet and capture a wide range of looks. Generally easy to install and, in many cases, waterproof, kid proof and pet proof these products have become a large part of the bathroom flooring industry.

SHEET VINYL FLOORING

A product still being used in many bathroom projects is sheet vinyl. Price friendly and easy care make this an enduring favorite for many homeowners.
