Not sure which flooring option is best for your bathroom? There are a lot of choices out there, which can get a little overwhelming for homeowners trying to pick their best option. To help out, we’re going to discuss some of the most popular bathroom flooring options and why you should consider them.
Ceramic tiles remain one of the most popular choices for your bathroom floor. They can come in any size and any color you want, they are very durable, and they are more affordable than stone tile. If you can find ceramic tile options you like, you can easily plan out your bathroom floor. However, ceramic tiles do tend to have larger grout lines that may need some extra cleaning from time to time.
Vinyl tile is one of the least expensive options, and it’s ideal for those who are on a budget. Vinyl resin can be formed into nearly any shape and color, which also makes it an ideal option if you really want wood flooring in your bathroom and can find a faux wood vinyl option that you like. Try to see vinyl tiles in person before you make your choice.
Stone tile is one of the most luxurious bathroom flooring options, with granite, slate and travertine all being very popular (marble is a little too moisture sensitive to use as bathroom flooring without great care). However, stone tiles are also one of the most expensive options, so it’s important to plan your budget out accordingly. Stone tiles are also limited in color options. However, their grout lines are thin and easy to maintain, and these large tiles can match many other bathroom design choices with ease.
If you like the idea of stone tile but find it too expensive, consider concrete tile as an alternative. These tiles are usually more affordable and versatile than stone tile, although they may require more maintenance and extra sealant to keep them safe.
Linoleum is making a comeback as a particularly eco-friendly option for bathroom floors. If you like the idea of using all-natural materials, check out linoleum options and colors. Linoleum tile can be a surprisingly versatile material, especially if you use it creatively. As a bonus, it’s relatively easy to clean!
Note: Wood flooring, even engineered wood flooring, should not be used in the bathroom (even if you really like how it looks). Bathroom moisture and humidity will eventually ruin any type of wood flooring, which is why you will not find recommendations for these products. Stick with the above tile options instead.
