How to Choose a Bathroom Floor

When picking a bathroom flooring material, you look at the same considerations as you do for the rest of the home. Is it rigid? Will it endure frequent use? Does it look nice or tacky? However the main consideration for bathroom flooring material is, of course, moisture.

Let's look at the following bathroom flooring choices commencing from worst to best:

6. Carpet - a terribly bad choice for a bathroom floor. Moisture and carpeting just don't mix.

5. Solid Wood - A slightly better bathroom flooring choice than carpet, solid hardwood looks great and feels cozy under foot. However moisture can destroy solid wood.

4. Laminate Floor - A laminate floor is a more suitable choice than solid hardwood. The wear layer of laminate floors is incredibly rigid. Since the seams are glued together, it's hard for moisture to seep in. Laminate floor is easy to clean, however if moisture does contact the wood chip bottom it'll cause expansion and bubbling. This will probably demand the replacement of the entire floor.

3. Stone - No moisture inconveniences with limestone, marble, granite, and other stone flooring alternatives. However, its cold, tends to be slippery, and very expensive.

2. Vinyl - vinyl is the most common choice for bathroom flooring material as its budget friendly and available in many styles. However no matter how fancy the texturing and style are, it still looks and feels like vinyl.

1. Ceramic Tile - Like stone, ceramic tile can achieve a solid, rich, textured feeling. Like vinyl, its moisture resistant, fairly budget friendly and is accessible in many styles. And like wood flooring, it looks great.

A small bathroom floor can become a great place to splash out, the reduced square footage will help keep costs down. Determining how important the washroom is with regard to the rest of the home will help you figure out where to put your money.
