When deciding on the material of your bathroom floor there will be the same considerations you have for the rest of your home. Is it durable? Is it appealing? The most important thing to think about is moisture. Below are different options for your bathroom floor.
Ceramic Tile: It’s fairly inexpensive, has an appealing look, and is waterproof. There are many different types, sizes and shapes of ceramic tiles. It can be slippery but size of the tile and texture can help reduce a slippery surface.
Stone: This is the most expensive flooring option. It can be slippery but there won’t be any issues with the moisture like other types of flooring. There are many different types of stone flooring but a few popular are granite, limestone and marble.
Wood: Solid wood would not be the best choice for flooring in your bathroom. However there is engineered wood, which will hold up to moisture and it will give you the look of wood.
Laminate: There are many different styles of laminate available: oak, slate, travertine, pine and tuscan stone terra. These all are laminates but each will give you a different look and feel.
Sheet or Tile Vinyl: Vinyl is a popular choice for bathroom floors. It comes in sheets or in tiles. Vinyl is inexpensive and is available in many different style options. After awhile vinyl tiles can start to come up.
