The biggest consideration when it comes to your bathroom floor is moisture. The bathroom is a unique environment in your home in which moisture is completely inevitable. The last thing you want is to face the headache that will ensue when your floors warp or become damaged by mold if you install the wrong material. Here are some of the best bathroom flooring options from the experts at Floor Coverings International Cleveland West.
Porcelain tile and bathrooms go hand in hand, and with very good reason. Porcelain is a member of the ceramic family, but it is only considered porcelain if it has a water absorption rate of 0.5 or less. This makes it ideal to withstand a wet environment. It’s available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. No matter what your vision for your bathroom is, you can likely find the right porcelain tile to match.
If you’re looking for material on a budget, luxury vinyl might be the way to go. Available in sheet, plank, and tile, vinyl flooring is completely waterproof. Your kids can splash away at bath time and you won’t have to give a second thought about it damaging the floors. An additional benefit of vinyl is that it’s available in sheets. This means you could cover the entire floor with few to no seams, minimizing the risk of moisture slipping in and allowing mold to grow underneath.
If you have more room in your budget, natural stone is a stunning and safe option for the bathroom. Materials like slate will cost you more upfront, but they will add value and appeal to your home should you ever decide to sell. Slate comes in a variety of colors and natural patterns that will add a sophisticated look to your bathroom. Stone materials are also ideal candidates for radiant heating systems, meaning you could step out of the shower onto a toasty tile floor.
