Bathrooms are among the most heavily trafficked areas and moisture-prone areas of the home, and selecting the right flooring material will help you prevent damage. As you are planning a bathroom renovation project, consider the flooring installation options carefully to ensure you get a durable material. Below are several popular choices to help you decide.
What Flooring Material Should You Choose?
1. Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl is completely waterproof, making it one of the most popular options in full baths. If you are looking for a more upscale choice, luxury vinyl plank flooring is especially popular because it comes in large pieces, allowing flooring installation contractors to connect them quickly. Sheet vinyl flooring can also come in sections that fit the room perfectly, resulting in minimal seams where water could seep beneath the floor. Luxury vinyl also feels soft and supportive, and can replicate wood or natural stone.
2. Porcelain or Ceramic Tile
Tile is nonporous, so it provides excellent resistance to moisture and mildew. Porcelain and ceramic are also available in a wide range of colors and designs, allowing you to customize the flooring installation. While patterned tiles are especially popular for creating a stunning visual impact, you can also find options that resemble natural materials.
While tile does tend to feel cold underfoot, you can prevent this by installing radiant heating underneath the floor. Smaller tiles are best for spaces used by small children or elderly adults, as the surrounding grout provides a non-slip surface.
3. Natural Stone
While marble, granite, and limestone are the most popular stone options, they carry a higher price point than other flooring materials. However, they provide stunning beauty and excellent durability, which means they are an excellent investment. As a classic choice, natural stone is also easy to blend with many style preferences, from a spa-like, natural oasis to modern and elegant bathrooms. Although most stone is slippery, naturally textured options, such as slate, provide more traction. You can also sandblast marble or other smooth stone for a textured finished.
