When being creative as you can be when renovating the bathrooms in your home, one of the most important things you must consider is flooring material. Because of the humidity and exposure to moisture, you will need to use a material that is water resistant, easy to clean and durable.
The following materials combine all of those features. They add style and grace to any area of the home, including the bathroom.
Ceramic and other types of stone tiles are extremely versatile, easy to clean and very durable. They come in a variety of colors and will give your bathroom a strong, rustic look. If you are considering ceramic tile, make sure to choose one that is “anti-slip” and resistant to mold and mildew.
Cork or Bamboo
Cork and bamboo are affordable options that, when properly sealed, provide the same durability and wear as hardwood flooring. Bamboo has a texture that closely resembles wood, while cork is a much softer material. Both are versatile, water resistant and easily cleaned if properly installed.
Luxury vinyl is designed to look as authentic as possible, while at the same time, offers durability and easy maintenance. Vinyl is ideal for areas where moisture is common. Bathrooms are often extremely humid and water will occasionally find its way onto the floor. Luxury vinyl is moisture and stain resistant and manufactured to retain its beautiful finish.
Carpeting is also a good choice for a bathroom. People who prefer carpet can choose from a variety of colors, textures and pile lengths that can enhance the look of any décor. With proper care and maintenance, carpeting can be used for comfort as well as beauty.
