Bathroom Floors

Before installing new floors in your bathroom, it's a good idea to make sure that the floors are suitable for bathroom installation. Some floors can incur damage as a result of exposure to water and are therefore not recommended for bathroom installation. Additionally, if you install flooring in your bathroom against the manufacturer's instructions, you could end up voiding your floor warranty.

Some floor types that would be suitable as a bathroom floor include tile, some stone, linoleum and vinyl. Floors that are made with woody materials (e.g. bamboo; hardwood; laminate; cork) are not typically recommended for bathroom installation as the wood can warp due to water contact. When installing wood floors in kitchens or bathrooms, make sure you verify with the manufacturer.

Bathroom floors should be textured enough to offer some slip resistance. While vinyl floors are water resistant, they can be very slippery when wet. We had vinyl floor tiles in our bathroom, and on several occasions I slipped getting out of the shower. If you currently have vinyl floors in your bathroom or plan on installing them, make sure you lay down rugs in front of the bathtub and sink areas.

Tile and stone floors not only look great in bathrooms, they can offer a higher level of slip resistance than linoleum and vinyl. They can also deter mold and fungi growth, and when properly sealed are also water resistant. Feel free to peruse the various flooring sections of FindAnyFloor.com to discover the floor that would work best in your bathroom.

Kirsten,
I noticed that you mentioned that you slipped in your bathroom on your vinyl flooring. I slipped more than once and eventually it has come time to change out our vinyl flooring to new tile flooring before I break my neck. I wanted to become a do it yourself person and save money on installation so I found you guys on the web and I decided to go with tile flooring. I used your site to learn to put down tiles, types of floor tiles, comparing tile types, tile drying time, and even how to tile uneven floor. It was very helpful. Thank you. After I finished the tile flooring in my bathroom I still decided to lay down rugs by my bath tub and sink area because my floor didn't feel textured enough for me to not slip!

The main one is that some key content is missing. Shows from many popular TV networks aren’t offered, ACHO C905T
