ABOUT BATHROOM FLOORING
While it may not be something you think about frequently, you spend a lot of time in your bathroom. It’s your place to get ready for the day and to wind down for rest every night. Bathrooms can also a be a statement space for guests to enjoy the style of a pretty powder room.
Regardless of size, bathrooms share a common function and need a few key qualities: style, practicality and safety. The floor you select needs to be moisture-resistant, easy to clean, and above all, safe—even when wet.
BATHROOM FLOORING TRENDS
When you’re selecting a brand-new look or replacing outdated bathroom flooring, it’s important to consider a blend of trend and function.
Lighter-color floors like wood-grain vinyl or porcelain tiles can provide contemporary style and comfort, while also forming an excellent water-resistant floor. Tiled and stone flooring also has the option to add radiant heating, so you can step on a cozy warm floor in the mornings instead of cold hard rock.
BATHROOM FLOORING CONSIDERATIONS
Any flooring in your bathroom is prone to leaking water lines, shower spray and even toilet overflow. You’ll also need a floor that can handle the steam and humidity of your hottest baths while maintaining a safe, nonslip surface.
- Is this floor easy to clean?
- Will this floor be slippery when wet?
- How well will this floor dry out when it gets wet?
