Did you know that choosing bathroom flooring is a very different process than choosing flooring for your kitchen or living room? Bathroom flooring needs to be water-resistant, skid-resistant, and durable enough to withstand the wildest bath time. FloorQuest is here to help you consider your bathroom flooring options before you pick the flooring that's best for your home.
Some bathroom flooring choices are better than others depending on what fits your lifestyle. Here are some of the options available with their best and worst features:
Vinyl Sheets, Tiles, or Planks
Vinyl sheets or planks are a great bathroom flooring option if you have rowdy kiddos! Vinyl is stain-resistant and water-resistant, which makes it a great choice for children's bathroom. Vinyl is easy to install and comes in many beautiful options that will brighten up any bathroom. Downside: vinyl can be a little slippery, so invest in some cute, slip-resistant bath rugs!
Stone tiles are a great, natural looking bathroom flooring solution. Some options have a rougher texture than vinyl, so they're less inclined to cause slips and falls! While stone tiles can be a little chilly, installing a heating system under your floor will keep your feet warm and toasty throughout the year! This option can be a little more expensive, so if you're in love with natural stone bathroom flooring, consider it for a guest bathroom!
Porcelain or Ceramic Tile
This is one of the most popular bathroom flooring options because it's beautiful, durable, water-resistant, and easy to clean. Some tiles are certified slip-resistant and provide amazing traction to prevent slips and falls. Porcelain and ceramic tile can be a little more difficult to install, but it can be a worthwhile investment when properly maintained. If you're worried about cold tiles in the morning, ceramic tiles work great with radiant floor heating!
Cork floors might not seem like a great bathroom flooring choice, but cork is mold and mildew resistant - an ideal choice for any bathroom! A protective sealant can be applied to your cork floors to protect them from minor spills. You may need to reapply the sealant every few years to keep it fresh, but cork floors are a great environmentally-friendly option for any home.
