What Is The Best Bathroom Flooring

The biggest challenge in bathroom flooring is its ability to withstand moisture. The second desirable characteristic is that it should be slip resistant. Other attributes are similar to those of other rooms in the house – suitable flooring should be attractive, durable, of low maintenance, cost–effective and easy to install. Here is a selection of options starting from the best:

  • Ceramic Tile is available in a wide choice of shapes, like squares, rectangles, octagons and hexagons with a size range from 4” x 4” to 2’ x 2’. Ceramic tile is available in a variety of designs and finishes, including textured, for added slip-resistance. It is easy to maintain, is durable, and water and moisture resistant. Ceramic tile, however, is cold and hard underfoot.
  • Vinyl flooring, in sheet or adhesive tile, offers a huge selection of style options. It is relatively cheap, easy to install, moisture resistant and available in slip–resistant finishes.
  • Stone flooring has many similarities with ceramic tiles in that it is moisture resistant and durable though expensive. Marble, granite and limestone are most often used though there are other varieties. Stone is cold and hard on the feet. The surface can be textured or sandblasted for a slip-proof finish.
  • Laminate Flooring is not a recommended choice though superior to hardwood flooring. Laminate flooring comprises a resin-impregnated paper and wood chip base bonded with adhesive under temperature and pressure. The clear top or wear layer is of melamine which has wear and moisture resistant properties. However, if moisture does permeate through, the interior will expand and bubble. The only remedy is to tear it out and replace it. Some manufacturers will not warranty laminate flooring installed in bathrooms.
  • Hardwood flooring and carpet is most inadvisable as both are susceptible to moisture and unable to withstand it.

Many are of the opinion that bathroom fans are adequate to exhaust moisture and dampness from repeated showers, steam showers and baths. This is not the case as residual moisture tends to remain and can settle on the floor and walls.

Tile is a great option for bathrooms because of its easy maintenance, however you should be sure to have your grout sealed.

This is a great article. My mother in law actually has carpet in both her bathroom and kitchen. Can you believe that? It's like she's just waiting for mold or something. I used to have this really terrible linoleum in my bathroom. I live in Jersey, so I called up the guys from Smart Carpet (I think I linked them to here somewhere), and they gave me a breakdown on my tile choices and all that stuff. I love my floors now, but man, every time I think about bad bathroom, I get carpet and the mother-in-law coming right back in my mind. Just avoid that people!
