WHAT IS THE BEST FLOORING FOR A BATHROOM

With so many bathroom flooring options available in the market today, it could become hard to decide on the best one for your space. You will, obviously, want bathroom flooring that complements the décor of not just your bathroom but the entire house. More importantly, flooring that will hold up to the unique demands of a humid and wet atmosphere typical of a bathroom. The situation in a bathroom is usually made worse by the heating typical in that heavily used room.

Sheet Vinyl

Sheet vinyl flooring for your new bathroom comes in an extensive range of patterns and colors at fair rates. As they come in convenient 12-ft wide rolls, sheet vinyl can be installed seamless in your bathroom. By sealing the edges of the sheets using silicone caulk, you can create a bathroom that is splashing-kid-proof. Remember, vinyl tiles are not suitable for bathrooms as the seams give may allow water to find its way to the bathroom subfloor. It’s best to stick to vinyl sheets for best outcomes.

Porcelain or Ceramic Tile

These two are excellent choices as they not only look great but are water-resistant and durable. Porcelain tile, in particular, brings out the best of everything you will want in a bathroom. It is stylish, cost-effective and waterproof. Porcelain tile will give the bathroom a textured, rich, and solid feeling. Similar to vinyl, ceramic or porcelain tile is waterproof and simply looks great in a bathroom.

Engineered Wood

If you want to have the look of wood in your bathroom, go for engineered wood. It’s better than solid wood when exposed conditions of high moisture like is common in a bathroom because of its dimensional stability. Engineered wood comes with a plywood base that will hold its own against moisture. The best thing is that it has an authentic wood-like wood as the top layer is made of real wood.

Cork

Cork is not only eco-friendly but resilient, warm, and waterproof. It’s both comfortable underfoot and splash-proof. Because of the textured surface, it’s also slightly slip-resistant. And because it’s made using the bark of trees and grows back, cork is sustainable and biodegradable.

Linoleum

Linoleum is another eco-friendly flooring material. It’s resilient sheet flooring suitable for your new bathroom and is available in many patterns and vibrant colors. The basic ingredients used in making linoleum are cork and linseed oil making it biodegradable and recyclable. Look for linoleum that comes with a protective coating as that helps in preventing stains and scratches.

Truth be told; depending on your family size, the bathroom may be the most used room in your entire house. That explains why it needs flooring capable of handling such heavy foot traffic, lots of moisture, humidity, and all the messes occasionally happening in the bathroom.
