Best Flooring For Bathrooms

One of the prime considerations in a bathroom floor is moisture and dampness from a steamy environment and spills. This rules out many flooring choices such as hardwood, laminate, and carpet. Another consideration is the slipperiness of a wet floor which can prove hazardous. Hence some of the ideal flooring options are:

Porcelain and ceramic tiles: Porcelain tile is more durable than ceramic tile but both are good choices for bathroom floors. Both types of tile floors come in printed, matte, textured and glazed finishes in a huge selection of colors. A matte finish is preferred which is more slip resistant. The disadvantage in these tiles is that the flooring can be cold in winter.

Stone flooring gives a bathroom a luxurious finish. Marble and polished stone floors are best avoided since it can be slippery when wet. Some stone floors are porous and will hence require to be sealed. Slate, granite and limestone are ideal for a durable and elegant finish.

Rubber flooring is hardwearing, waterproof and easy–to–clean. It is available in sheet or tiles in smooth or studded (non–slip) finishes. Rubber floors come in a variety of colors to suit any color scheme.

Vinyl flooring is the next alternative, also available in sheets or tiles. For a softer and warmer feel, cushioned vinyl floors can be used. Vinyl too comes in a wide color range, is hardwearing and waterproof. Vinyl flooring has to be laid on an absolutely flat sub–floor.

Linoleum floors are easy to maintain and offers a wide choice of color and design schemes. Linoleum too, available in sheets and tiles, requires a flat sub–floor.
