The Best Flooring Options for Your Bathroom

Much like with the other rooms in your home, there are multiple flooring options available for your bathroom. There are plenty of factors that go into the choice of which flooring option to use for the bathroom including durability, cost, comfort, aesthetics, and many others. We know that the chances of having water accidentally cover your flooring are much greater in the bathroom, so that fact must also be kept in mind.

Porcelain/Ceramic Tile
If you’re looking for a choice that’s waterproof, cost-effective, and stylish, porcelain tile is likely your best choice. Porcelain tile can provide an attractive option for your bathroom flooring that won’t break the bank. Porcelain will not absorb water, making it easier to clean up when it gets wet. In case you are confused about the difference, porcelain is considered part of the ceramic tile family. With tile you can get the exact size you need. It can be a bit slippery, but that can be remedied by texturing.

Vinyl flooring can include sheets, planks, or tile. Vinyl is very practical for bathroom flooring and also looks good. Vinyl is fairly simple to install and is available in thousands of style options. Sheet vinyl flooring is good for rooms expecting a large amount of water such as laundry rooms or children’s bathrooms.
Natural Stone
Natural stone is a great choice for bathroom flooring. One of the only downsides is the fact that it can get a bit more expensive than other options, but you’ll likely find it to be worth the cost. To prevent stone flooring from being slippery be sure to have it textured.
Solid Hardwood
Using solid hardwood for your bathroom flooring is a bit tricky. It looks great and also feels warm under foot, but solid hardwood does not deal well with moisture. That means if you choose to have it in your bathroom, you’ll need to make sure there are zero gaps for moisture. You’ll want to have the hardwood professionally installed.
